Calf update and other things...
So we've become BW's foster parents for the time being. He's sucking the bottle with gusto and is also standing well on his hind legs. All in all, he's getting along fine. Often when something like this happens there is a happy ending. We are a ways off from being done calving and there might be a mama cow who loses her calf and needs this one, but in the meantime, we'll do the feeding and the loving.
The Grandangel came to play today and we had a fun time digging in the dirt and picking daffodils to carry around the yard. We even brought some flowers in for the table. I snipped some apple branches that are about to blossom and put them with the daffies. Doesn't it look nice? I can't wait for the pinky-white, sweet smelling apple blossoms to pop!
I made a fun little sun hat for Hazel Peach this afternoon while she took her nap. Her mama found the pattern online and made one so I thought I ought to make one to have on hand when she visits here. It's a free pattern and easy to make. Click here. I made my hat lined so I made two hats and sewed them together instead of using bias tape to cover the seams. I also added some ribbon ties for windy days like today. I hope the wind blows in some rain as the weatherman is predicting. We could use some April showers for our May flowers.
A crown is merely a hat that lets the rain in.
