Mel’s Show and Tell

I was so excited to see this feature at Mel’s because I loved show and tell day at school when I was a little girl. I remember every Sunday night looking through my toybox for the perfect item to bring to class with me the next day. Usually it was my beloved tattered bear Teddy that was placed into my school bag Monday morning.

Show and Tell

I have two photos to share with everyone today and it’s not Teddy. Sadly Teddy has gone on to the Big Teddy Bear Picnic in the Sky.

Both photos were taken from my kitchen window. I love the views I have to look at while I’m doing the dishes.

Stormy Day

This is Sgt leading our ladies back into the barn for the evening. They were still lambing so we felt it was the safest place for them to be incase one delivered during the night. A storm had just passed by us and as the sun started to come out again the rainbow appeared. Rainbows occur regularly here after the storms and I never get tired of seeing them. The little girl inside me wants to put on her wellies and run as fast as she can to the end of the rainbow to find that pot of gold.

My Back Yard

I took this photo one afternoon while the ewes were grazing and their lambs were playing. The lambs are now spending less and less time close to their moms and more and more time playing with one another. Little lambs seem to have springs for legs and spend a lot of their time bouncing from place to place instead of walking. One of their favorite games to play is what I call “King of the Mountain”. If there is anything on the ground that is higher up then they are, like rock, they will do anything they can to get on top of it. Once one of the lambs has made it atop the rock the others will try to knock him or her off and take their place. The games they play have made me laugh out loud in my kitchen.

If I am having a Eeyore kinda day and need to smile I look out at the lambs.

    Loved reading your post. I have a cousin in Maine who is studying to raise sheep on her property. Your family (three sons!) look amazing working the farm.
    You have a wonderful view!
    Happy Sunday!

    I love the view from your kitchen! Mine looks directly towards my in-laws house… I love them and all, but I don’t like seeing their big house from my tiny one!

    Thanks for the Show and Tell!

    Those views are certainly better than looking out your window to see your weird neighbor in his bathrobe retrieving his paper.

    While there are days I miss living in town and the simplicity of a tiny patch of yard, I don’t regret looking out my windows now and seeing something new every day.

    what a great view to look at every day! I once visited friends in Ireland who have a sheep farm … I got to help bring the sheep in for the night. In the rain. Looking quite funny in rain gear head to toe. Then my sister slipped and fell into sheep poo. Now THAT was funny!

    I do love me a rainbow. I’ve wasted many an hour trying to capture them with the camera with only moderate success. One of my best efforts was of a perfect arch over the Tasman Valley in NZ and your photo has reminded me of the sense of achievment I felt that morning. You have such a lovely view from your window and I love the idea of the little lamb floor show.

    Great Show and Tell.
