We’ve had bees on order since December and need new hive frames on hand for when we pick them up next week. I purchased these from a local guy who deals in bee supplies. We really need to get busy with nails and wood glue!

Bella had twin does on St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve named them Shannon and Molly. They have a tendency to nap a lot. I’ve seen them fall asleep out in the pasture while mom is grazing then she loses track of their whereabouts and gets frantic. She’s come running to me a few times to get help finding them. She’s a good mom.

Mallards enjoying a respite on our pond. Since it’s a male/female pair, I’d love them to stick around and raise ducklings! The frogs have awoken and started singing constantly down by the pond. It won’t belong before our entire property is covered in teeny tiny frogs.

Our pink-eared lamb getting to know a pasture-mate. He’s got wool and will need to be shorn one day, the other one doesn’t and won’t. The lambs hang together in a feisty little gang all day long. I imagine they sleep with their mamas but am not entirely sure. I hope they sneak off together and play practical jokes on the goats at night. :-)
