Lilacs, lambs, and lithodora

I took these yesterday, when we had bright sun and blue skies.
It looks like Vienna is the proud mother of quads in that photo! But the sibling pairs were apparent during siesta under the big fir today:
Wouldn't they all make a nice entry for a "get of sire" class? Four fine lambies, they are.

From brown lambs to blue flowers, here are the two varieties of lithodora in my island bed:
Funny how few blue flowers there are in nature. I guess the Creator used most of that colorway for the sky. ;-)

That's it for today from . . .

The purples and blues are glorious! The lamb photos are absolutely adorable.

Nice looking lambs! Do you think anyone besides fiber people use the word "colorway"? :-D

Is Belfast the dark one in the second photo?

Michelle said...

I'm rather partial to purples and blues, Nancy Kay. ;-)

You're welcome, Monica!

Probably not, Sara. (Isn't God a fiber person? ;-)

Adrienne, Belfast is leading the pack in the second photo, and is the darker lamb in the fourth photo.

That's what I meant :-D I meant the second photo of just the two lambs - which is the fourth photo in your post :-) He's the darkest of all of them, isn't he? He's awesome!

A, all four of the lambs will fade like their daddy -- but yes, he's awesome. ;-) We could band him and ship him and a buddy to Chicago. You have a back yard and together they would be much smaller than that dog you fostered!
