Summer in square packages
It was so nice to see the sun. Even just a few hours of sunshine and warm temps gave a faint green tinge to the pastures.
"Landscape with tail" - Not a very romantic photo caption
Yes, that's a dropped tail lying on the concrete. We band the lambs' tails to dock them as opposed to cutting or cauterizing. It's bloodless and after hurting for a few minutes the tail goes numb. After about 10 days the tails drop off. I had a very nice lady once ask me "How old are the lambs when they shed their tails?" I had to gently explain that they have 'help' in shedding them.
The warmth made the lambs sleepy and they were happy to sit around in a half doze. Lucky lambs.

And lookee - not just crocus, but some little blue flowers. I'm sorry to say I can't remember what they are.
Today we're back in the 40s, but they can't take it away from us - we're another day closer to spring.
