The beginnings....

The beginnings of a wedding cuff for a good friend.

The first calf is born out of the cows.

I saw the first grackle. (I don't like grackles)

Lambs are racing happily on the green.

The fresh-laundered towels are on the clothesline and I have more laundry scheduled to go out.  It's still a chilly morning, but promises to be a sunny, nice day.
After a wee bit of wet snow this past week, the grass should really shoot up.

Wet, spring snow is poor man's fertilizer. 
It does wonders for the grass and plants.

Have a Happy Day!

On the grassy banks,
Lambkins at their pranks;
Wooly sisters, woolly brothers,
Jumping off their feet;
While their woolly mothers
Watch by them and bleat.

  3. I had never heard of a 'grackle' - I looked it up, and it said "Bird - icterid" and icterid means 'jaundiced one' !! no wonder you do not like them!!!

    But I love the rosetti poem

    blessings xx

  6. Grackles! We had them at home when I was a kid. I did not like their noise making at all!
    Oh, the cuff is lovely, lovely, lovely. Mine is borderline weird but it is hanging on a knob, waiting for me to pick it up again.
    I love the poem about the lambs running and jumping about. Yahoo for the cows, starting the baby boom!
