These visitors decided to hang out for a couple of days, over the weekend when we sheared sheep!  It was very neat to listen to these Bald Eagles talk to each other…

After the Rains….


We had just a bit of a downpour her this evening…


We received just a bit over 2/10ths of an inch of rain in under an hour.

Spring Days…

I am loving the longer, warmer days we’ve been having lately.  Not too hot or too cool.  Perfect spring weather.


The flowering trees, tulips, grape hyacinth and violas are in full bloom too…
