I was considering taking today off from blogging.
You see... we've had a string of fantastically beautiful days
and I have pretty much spent sun-up til sun-down in the garden.
I am almost finished planting for the season.

I do have a few photos from yesterday.
I only wish that photos could be a multi-sense experience,
because there is so much that I would love to share that a photo cannot convey.

Laying on my stomach in the grass I watched as each of the goats...
curious as to what I was doing...
moved about to get a better look.
(Except for Jill, who continued sunning herself just feet away from me.
I had to chuckle, when Andy came out of his house wearing his
He's shedding his winter coat and it is hanging from him like dreadlocks.
So there you have it...
what started out to be the lack of a blog post
has somehow magically been transformed into
a blog post.
