Oh, I love her…or him! What a beauteous sight!
I know, Suz. Made my heart sing!
As only you can
Leap lamb as you do
Trust four legs not two!
That’s lovely, Willow. Thanks so much.
Just a silly rhyme 🙂
Vive la difference!! 🙂
Aww! Cute nothing like a spring lamb. I have always wanted a hobby farm. I am getting on in years and I’m thinking I love the computer more now. 🙂
Too old; never!
My bones would ache lol I’m probably not too old however I don’t know if I would have that commitment anymore.
Now that’s a different story!
Yes perception can change using different words.
So cute and peaceful Jean. Thank you for sharing that photo.
As an asideJean, the first installment of my disappearance is up over at Cordelia’s Mom http://cordeliasmomstill.com/2016/02/22/dont-pay-the-ransom-i-escaped-guest-post-by-paul-curran/ If you have a chance to read it I would be honored. Thank you.
Thanks Paul. I’ll be over shortly.
Thanks Jean. Immensely cheering. We have just returned from a trip to rural Scotland – it was a delight to watch the lambs testing out their legs. Regards Thom.
Hi Thom, how lovely to have been in Scotland, the home of my ancestors.
They certainly love their sheep there too.
Such a soulful picture of innocence..it reminds me of the song Bing Crosby sang..that had the words “We are poor little lambs who have lost our way..baaa ….baaa….baaa”. It makes you want to hug this little lamb.
Hi Joni, yet another song I need to check out. I can assure you that the lamb’s mother was keeping a very close eye on him/her.
Whose lambykins is that?! What a precious face!
Hi Luanne, heard bleating while out around The Copper Coast here in Co. Waterford. Its mama was very close by as you can see in the background!
I can’t stop thinking about this little one.
Nor can I!. I was back out there and took a lot more pics. The light wasn’t great so will try again tomorrow maybe.
Yes, I want to see more!
You will, I promise!
Oh how sweet Jean 🙂
So cuuute! 🙂
Oh so adorable 😊.
Thanks so much. It was great to find the first lambs of my year to date. A real symbol of hope.
That’s the time of the year! I can stand and watch them forever 🙂
Hi Inese, yes I’ve been driving around in search of them. The farmer said his were very early this year. Some arrived 3 weeks ago.
Hope no more frosts in March.
At least if there are some, we know that better weather is around the corner.
I kinda like frosts for clearing the bugs and germs.
I don’t mind frost, just thinking of the newborn lamb.
I’m glad to say ‘my’ farmer had all that well under control but it would be hard for many, I agree.
What a sweet baby-face!
