I dunno, this spring has been so-so. A bit too cold and windy for my liking. I remember a couple of years back, the farmers were putting in seeds in March. Not this year! Anyway, when the sun was out today and the wind died down, it wasn't too bad at all. Gordon and I went for a nice walk back to our woodlot. And on the way back, I had a visit with the pigs...
...while wearing my Quirky Carrot sweatshirt. The Quirky Carrot is a fantastic little restaurant in our nearby small town of Alexandria. It's open for breakfast and lunch, and also offers cooking courses and other wonderful things. All the food is healthy, delicious and homemade and the menu changes every day. I'm so glad we have this place to go to! Great baristas, too.
I think Ophelia was trying to tell me something! All the pigs are on the chunky side (oops! too much lazing about in the hay this winter) so we are cutting back their rations a bit. They are also getting outside and exercising more now that the snow is gone.
Look at this beauty...
I'm in love with Annuk. She's a darling cat!
She checked out the tractor today.
Buttercup is very pleased it's spring!
EMerson climbed up my back to get a better view of the pigs!
Can you spot the little Greek kitty in this photo? Annuk!
And here's our lovely Mootie again...
She's such a beauty. She gets brushed pretty much every day.
Daisy is just thrilled winter has ended.
She came from Syros, Greece last November with her sisters Buttercup and Honey. I kept telling them that winter wouldn't last forever, but I don't think she believed me.
Annuk just arrived this month, so she doesn't know's in store for her later this year. She was hanging around with Daisy today. They were both left at the same dump in Syros as kittens, at different times. I wonder if they are related?
Mootie spied a squirrel up one of the black walnut trees!
And Missy was out and about too!
Missy and I have a cuddle session after day. When I clean the box stalls every morning, she sits on the railing and meows at me until I stop what I'm doing and give her some love. It's really cute. And how could I say "no" to such an adorable calico?
Annuk an Daisy explored the woodpile too!
Then Mootie and Annuk had a sniff around the tiller on the tractor.
Annuk checking out her surroundings!
Bootylicious pigs snacking!
Annuk and Daisy.
It turned out to be a very lovely spring day. Have a great weekend! Thank you for all the nice comments you leave on my blog. They always make me smile.
