I love my little black lambs. They don't stay black for long so I enjoy it while it lasts. Soon enough they will have white bodies and only black faces and legs. Still cute and very much the quintessential storybook sheep. Most of our lambs have names and the three above are named for three of Tom's friends from university (at their request). They may stay on the farm for breeding or sold to another Suffolk sheep breeder. Prices start around the $300 mark so they aren't cheap but Suffolks are a great breed to keep and care for and they are from registered pure bred sheep. Then again, some rams can fetch prices in the thousands.
I moved my wrought iron garden setting into the vegie garden today. There was a perfect spot for it by the lavender and I'm hoping to have a few tea breaks and a lunch/ dinner or two down there this spring/ summer. Besides that it will give me a nice place to have a rest while I work outside. With todays warm weather I planted kidney and borlotti beans, turmeric, squash and a couple of watermelon (moon and stars). Also a couple of bromeliad plants from my Mum and a couple of lilac plants from my Nan's garden. I also took some of the lilac blooms from her tree (they are on the table above). I had a great day, I hope yours was good too.
