The Farm In Early May

Hello dear friends, this week we seem to have gone directly from Winter to Summer!  It is hard not to have spring fever when the temperatures are so warm.  The snow is finally gone so a little walkabout was in order.

A view of the moon at 6 am one morning this week.

Last weekend we moved our Adirondack chairs to the fire pit and had a lovely little bonfire.  Crackers, cheese and wine were the perfect accompaniment on a warm late afternoon. 

Pulmonaria is one of my favourite plants and one of the first to bloom here at the farm.

This Sweet Cicely has been a rampant self sower which puts it into the Garden Thug territory.  It has a very deep root and I will try cutting it back severely this year to see if it dies.  The plant is quite pretty and looks delicate but has firmly established itself under our large maple trees.

The daffodils are just starting to bloom.  The tulips have fallen victim to marauding rabbits.

Even the crocuses have been mowed down.

The three stooges!  Abby is fitting in very well.  It is hard to believe that she is already 6 months old!

This week the sheep were happy to have their photos taken.

This little lamb is not dead but is enjoying the sun and warm ground.

I hope that you enjoyed this very quick tour.  Thank you for visiting!
