Sunny days and signs of spring

Photobucket

This afternoon me and the boys walked over to the horse pasture to see how it's coming up. Douglas wanted to check out this star flower a little closer...

Maybe good to eat? (if you look closely you can see me in Douglas eye ball, Kevin pointed that out! too funny)
Photobucket
Norman wants one too...

Hmmm smells nice...

Photobucket
Well come on!

The boys charging off...

These my friends are the first strawberry flowers I've found out... getting very excited!

Douglas deciding if maybe this feather would be good to eat...

For a few days this was our bird set up... but the chicks/ducklings quickly out grew the small bins and we set about looking for more boxes when I realized I had an entire ferret nation cage empty and clean on the porch. I checked the bar spacing to make sure it would be safe, and then decided to try it out.

So far so good, they like it, they've got lots of room, and it's much easier to clean twice a day.

The fruit trees are flowering... not the apples yet.

For some reason my goat pasture is full of shooting stars this year...

Yesterday I got all my pots planted, and now I need to buy more since I ran out...

Kevin tilled the rest of the garden area... I cannot show you the entire garden in one picture because it's too big! So I have to take a few. We'll have 5,000 square feet fenced when we are done. Tomorrow we go buy more posts and wire to get the job started.

Everyone is very excited the grass is out, especially the Prairie dogs...

This is the best picture of Quad I've got, it's not very good, and the lighting is bad. It's from yesterday. This morning I noticed one of his extra feet is turning white.

Since we can't build fences today, and the goats are all sleeping in the sunshine, I think I'll change my laundry loads and go sit on the porch with the dogs and some lemonade for a bit.

We are joining the Homestead Barnhop this Monday!

Looks like Quad is getting bigger. Wonder if the extra feet will wither up...

Everything is looking so good. And your pups are so cute! I'm wondering if those extra feet will wither up too.
Your photos make my day! I love spring. Your place looks like it is about 1-2 weeks ahead of our growth.

I saw your dog on the barn hop and had to see your blog. Your dogs are cute! Your garden area looks great! Nice pictures, enjoyed stopping over. Blessings from Wisconsin!

Your future garden looks lovely! We have to install 8' fencing to keep deer out - maybe we won't get that garden this year!
I love the picture of Douglas jumping over the water - Wow! You caught him in mid air! Great shot!
Yeah, the one of him getting ready to eat the flower (with your reflection) is cool, too!

Your way of rototilling was much better than mine!!

Your chick/duck setup looks great!
