On this early Friday morning of west coast rain, I first want to thank the many faithful readers and sprout question responders of Creative Potager. This new blog began on December 27, 2009 with “A Gown Remembered: A beginning.” Today’s submission makes 45 posts with 442 comments and 3,342 views. Thank you. Your engagement, encouragement, humour and insights are an integral part of what makes for an excellent creative potager.
I must be off to a writing group this morning. The underpainting is still drying on my oil canvas and it is Friday on the last Friday in February. I thought I would share a series of photos from my visit to Meadowmist Farm to see the sheep with their new lambs yesterday. The babies always make me laugh with their curious leaping and bouncing around.
Mama keeps an eye out as we wander around the yard looking at the babies.
Here is Fat and Sassy running across the top of the knoll beside us.
Now what are these three up to? They have mischief written all over them as the scuttle across the lawn.
Ah yes – a game of “let’s chase the cat.” Bridget Joyce’s lovely farm dog watches on to make sure nothing gets out of hand.
And finally, I take a first family portrait.
Thank you Joyce Kallweit for a delightful meander with this seasons new baby lambs. The best of the weekend everyone.
