It's been a rough few days here. Bitey Whitey is sick. Very sick. Something flukey as best the vets can figure and we are trying to figure out how to treat something we don't know quite what it is... Let me stress once again - whatever you've heard (probably all your life) about sheep giving up and dying on you for no reason at all is just such complete bunk. He's hanging in there and fighting hard and hopefully I'll have some good news to share soon.
In the meantime, as I was looking out the window of the Wool House, washing out his oral syringes, I noticed some bright yellow action out on the sunflowers next to the lavender garden. A beautiful yellow finch going to town! I love watching the birds and bees partying on flowers I've planted. It makes me feel like I've accomplished something good, for me and them. And I needed that this afternoon.
As an aside, the first pictures I took were framed like this one - bird, sunflowers. I feel awful that I haven't taken any pictures of my zinnias this year as they've been spectacular, so I moved over a bit to shoot through them and at least include some color in the shots. Sometimes just a step or two one way or the other completely changes a photograph. Which version do you like best?
