I love this kind of winter morning…crisp, chilly, and beautiful!
The ducks managed to keep a little spot of their pond open overnight and they were enjoying the sunshine this morning.
The girls were all happy to see me…
but were quickly on their way.
I’m not sure what makes the thistles so delicious on these frosty mornings, but they are a favorite.
Would you like to know why Duchess is smiling this morning?
Holly finally had her lambs last night and now she has some friends!
She had a very large boy, weighing in at 10.5 lbs. His name is Ector.
Sir Ector was a knight of the Round Table and Arthurian legend says that he was King Arthur’s foster father.
The little girl is a bit more dainty, weighing in at 5.5 lbs.
Her name is Emeline.
The name Emeline is old German for ’embracing everything’. It was a royal name in medieval England.
Paisley of course thinks it is a fine morning to stay inside and enjoy the warm fire.
