Weekend in the Sun

No. We didn’t go to Hawaii 🙂

The weather guessers were wrong. We didn’t get snow. Yea!

So, it was the Big Tree Fruit Pruning Weekend.

Here are some highlights-

And Wally mostly chatted with the sheeps through the fence

Afterwards, I went out to hang with the sheeps and try out my new fancy-schmancy smart phone (HTC EVO). I’ve never even had a phone with a camera in it before, so I’ve got a lot to learn-

Here are the boys, racing across the pasture to see my new gadget-

And the rest of the gang accompanying me on walkies-

What a nice bunch of guys.

While they have been enjoying their evergreen treats and ivy from the back fence, they are really excited that the grass seems to be growing again already.

So much so in some places (around the yard), that the man felt compelled to mow for the first time this year-

Crazy, eh?

    I am SO jealous!

    We were just beginning to see the ground ~ then got six inches of fresh snow, followed by freezing rain and sleet, today…

    ENJOY!

    Aren’t you tickled to have your own woolly flock now? It just seems so “right”! When do you plan on harvesting your first fleece crop?

      Yep. I just love my woolly guys. Thinking we’ll shear maybe in late march or so…..don’t have firm plan yet.

    It would be crazy to mow here with all the snow and cold 🙂
    The boy’s fleeces are getting quite long and full…will you be shearing soon? That will be so exciting for you Denise!
