Petals of promise

Our glorious yellow tulips are planted just outside the side door of the garage, but the deer still discover them sometimes. Not this year, fortunately for us. Their golden beauty is a treat for the eyes, and the daphne odora in the same bed is a treat for the nose. Heavenly!

Some of the blossoms on Boulderneigh aren't as "well-endowed," but they promise good things to come. We're dreaming of cherries, pears, prunes, apples and blueberries (raspberries, too, but they are new and not blooming yet).




Here are three of the girls enjoying some green grass.
Wonder where Valentine is? Right in front of me, begging for attention or hand-picked grass from MY side of the fence. Spoiled little sweetheart!
Tomorrow: hours on the road and a Shetland fleece tutorial!

That's it for now at . . .

You know, I'm just going to stop saying how lovely everything is; I've become too repetitive. Boulderneigh=Lovely. Lovely=Boulderneigh. A=B therefore B=A. Nuff said.

Hey, Kathy, I want a birth announcement!

You could make post cards from those pictures! How nice to have such a backdrop for your photos of your sheep!

Hey, what size coats are on the girls now?

I love those yellow tulips! And Sheperdchik's right, your photos would make lovely cards, how about blank notecards? I too wish I lived in such a gorgeous location. But I can't complain about our weather in Minnesota this week, it's been fabulous. My tulips are coming back after the cold temps and snow that flattened them completely. I hoping they will bloom.
