Is it spring yet?

It seemed like spring for awhile. The acacia is blooming and and the sweet scent wafts through the air when it’s warm. Acacias bloom in February here so their beautiful flowers don’t last–another storm is certain to come through. I love daffodils. A friend of mine says that she doesn’t like them and won’t plant them. “They’re just too perky!” Hey, anything that comes up year after year all by itself and has beautiful flowers is OK by me.

I finally caught a couple of their antics with my camera.

  1. How did you get the lambs to race like that? Was Rusty involved? They should love the sun and warmth expected this week. The pastures should be green from the rains.
