Good Morning!

Baaxter was the first lamb who Had To Go Out first thing in the morning.  He was always so rowdy that I was just happy he had something to do while I tried to drink coffee and catch up with him each morning. Liddy was much easier.  She'd graze for a bit and then come over and snuggle up for a long nap.

Bullwinkle likes to eat.  He wants to get up early and get out there.  I've got him staying (pretty) quiet until 6:00 and then we get up.  And go eat.  He'll check in with me for a couple seconds, but goes back to eating.  He'll check in again and then back out to eat.  The third time he comes over, he'll lay down and take a nap.  With a full tummy :-).


All the cats come out with us.  And Kate.  Tilly hangs out on the porch until she thinks there might be some food involved.  She's not an early riser.  It's light even though the sun hasn't crested the trees.


It's really not darker now that the sun is coming up.  I metered my light for the sunrise, which darkened everything else up.  The sheep and grass actually look more like the next picture...but the sun is blown out.  It's all give and take.  Which do you like best?


That's Andy and Liddy on the left.  The early risers.  Some sheep like to sleep in, too.


Bullwinkle, doing a little weed trimming for Saint Tim :-).




And a purple martin coming in, for kbdoolin :-D.  This is the second year for the martin house.  We had one pair that settled in and raised (I think) three babies.  I believe they are raising a second clutch.  I'm hoping we'll have even more living here next year.

There are some more fun morning (and afternoon and evening) pictures on my Instagram feed.  Yes, I'm now using Instagram.  In my spare time...  Sigh...  It's actually pretty fun.  Give it a try or just follow along.


Good morning!

  1. Lovely pictures to enjoy while drinking my coffee this morning. I'm sure it's 100 times more beautiful and peaceful in person.

  2. Yay, martins! And I'm with Miss Tilly ... sleeping in on a Saturday is good. Although that sunrise is gorgeous, so guess I'd have to set my alarm. I like the first sunrise pic best. Looks like a beautiful day on the farm.

    1. I'm guessing he'll be Blossom size, more width than height in the end...but who knows :-).

  4. I love the first photo. Why is it that the sun rises so much later there than it does here? We're at least an hour ahead of you . . . which means I don't watch the sun rise any more . . . . ;-)

    1. Wonder if it has something to do with where in the time zones we live, like the western side or the eastern side.

  5. I think i like the first one best. The sun over the trees and sense of the space of the sky is just breathtaking, even if you don't notice the sheep as much. :)

  7. Great photos, Sara! Such a perfect setting for morning coffee. I don't see many sunrises ~ cuz the trees block most them (lol)
    btw, your place looks just beautiful! You've been working hard. Is your weed trimmer available for loan?

  8. I like the first one best too.
    Neat that you captured a photo of the martin- I was wondering what lived in there.

  9. I love your photos. Not being an early riser, I appreciate that someone else is getting up at the crack of dawn to capture the beautiful photos ;) And the cat photo. And the purple martin photo.

    Bullwinkle is planning to set size records, I see. I wonder how that will translate to the length of his locks?

    1. I don't anticipate a long fleece from him, but I'm thinking it's going to be finer and soft.
