Pastorale



Look at these cute little "clovers".



These are the trees I like to sit under when I'm hanging out with the boys in the evening. You can lean back and put yourself in the picture too if you'd like.

Even when it's hot, the grass is cool. And the pine trees smell wonderful. Take a deep breath. Nice, eh? If you look straight up, you can see the sunlight filtering through the branches, kind of winking at you.

Some birds sing well into the evening and some start rustling around getting settled in early. There's always some shuffling of position to get it just right. I love to listen to the birds going to bed.



Hey look! There are three clovers now :-). Miss Ewenice has finally won them over. Or maybe they won her over. She didn't seem as excited to babysit this year as in years past and I was afraid she was getting too old for all that nonsense.



"When I was a little lamb about your age..." (Keebs is pretty polite, but I think I see his eyes starting to glaze over.)



"We'll be okay out here tonight. I'll take good care of the babies."

Thanks Miss Ewenice.

Everyone looks pretty content. I think you may have them ready to graduate to more sheep-like lives. (Poor Graham was so deprived before he came to live at your farm. When he was here he didn't even know the possibility of sleeping on the porch!)

Even funnier is how he didn't like the blankets when he first got here and now they are his *favorite* thing. He goes to a lot of trouble to arrange them "just so". I'll take some out there for him tonight so he feels at home ;-).

What a touching picture of Miss Ewenice with Keebler. Her presence fits the part she plays... the matronly keeper of her little charges. I am so glad that you are bringing the blankies out. I hope they get a ba-baa, too.

They will both get ba-ba's until Graham is 8 weeks old, so another 3-4 weeks. Keebs, being older, won't need one that long, but can't give Grahams one without a little for Keebs too. I don't mind.

I so enjoy checking in on Keebler and Graham. Love the photo with Miss Ewenice.

Miss Ewenice, I think you're the best baby sitter in the whole wide world. Sweet dreams...

Your green grass looks spectacular to this transplanted Kansan. My little sheep are envious. We have a nice patch of buffalo grass and other native grasses but nothing like KY bluegrass.

What a good sheep Ms. Ewenice is to watch over the youngsters. Those boys are really growing. How nice Keebs will get a ba ba a little bit longer until GL turns 8 weeks.

Will Graham Lamb grow up to look like Miss Ewenice? Wonderful pics.

What a lovely field of 'clover'. :-)
Your little babes are growing so fast. I'm glad they have a granny ewe to show them the ropes.

Great Shots! I wish I was leaning back to that pine tree and relaxing in that picture. :) The first one and the second last is my favorite! ADORABLE!! :D

Terrific pictures. Keebler is getting to be quite the puff ball. Your babies are becomming young men, it seems.
Miss Eweniss has my condolences; conversation with very young men can be quite trying. I am sure she will be an excellent tutor for them. ; )

Graham Lamb will look a little like Miss Ewenice, but will probably have bigger ears and hopefully not be so fat ;-).

What a good "almost a Momma" sheep she is!
