They do run, run run; they do run, run!



Just a taste of the antics afoot today. Between the weather and the season – as in being IN season – the energy was running high!

It was windy, but unexpectedly dry. The sunrise was subtle but beautiful still, and the morning sunshine set our ornamental cherry tree (I think it's a Kwanzan) ablaze.



While the Japanese maple in the island is my favorite tree, this ornamental cherry is a mighty close second. It is covered with double pink 'tissue-paper' blossoms in spring, green leaves in summer, glowing color in the fall, and has 'good bones' to enjoy in the winter as well.

Tomorrow morning my friend Jeannie and I will be "knee-deep in sheep" trying to get the six uncovered lambs cleaned up and coated. That should give us lots of time to chat and catch up – it's been too long!

That's it for today from . . .

Happy, happy big lambs! A joy to see them in their big pasture.

Visiting with a good friend . . . what better way to work through not the most pleasant task.

Your pictures of your yard and surrounding area are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

The beautiful leaves on the ground certainly add to the joy of the sheep on their romp.

Look at them go! I love to watch sheep run - there is something so endearing about it. I'm with Mama Pea - what a beautiful place you live in!

Fun seeing the lambs race and play! It looks like you had more clearing of the skies over there than we did here yesterday. Today, whew, that rain!!!
