A Beautiful Spring Donkey - Libbie - Nature Day!

Wow it is a Crisp, Clear, Chilly morning here! And that meant all of nature including the donkeys were out and ready to pose!

First I have show this photo of Libbie... my baby is growing into a teenager I think! Her ears from last week were just the start - her legs have shot up she is looking so skinny this week, and she is eating like a horse! I can tell she is growing every day - I think this next week will not be so pretty.. her baby fur is starting to fall out.... you know those teen years!



Ted E. Bear (one of the standard donkeys) was the first to greet me this morning - he has a bit of that sleepy look, but still a handsome man!




Then I found Ellie Mae and Vickie... You scratch my back I'll scratch yours :)



As I came towards the youth pen... Rosie was hurrying over to get her head rubbed, well that and plead for some Alfalfa... she LOVES it, probably most of all the donkeys. No Alfalfa.. but new hay bales are coming in later today... that will make her a happy too.




And then I had to add some nature photos.. I just Love Spring! First is a Cardinal in the oak tree. I had to zoom quite a bit that is why it is a bit fuzzy - we have literally hundreds of these birds on our property - people that are not from here are really amazed at how brilliant red they are and how many they see.


And my tree rose in the back yard is getting ready to have lots of pretty roses! mmm they smell so wonderful!


Hope you enjoyed today's photos... me I am off to the grocery store... arghhhh I hate going on Saturday mornings... but we are almost in crisis situations with much needed items so I can't wait until next week. Do you have a fun weekend planned? I would love you to tell me about it, cuz me.. grocery store, laundry and cleaning....

HUGS and-

Hi Michelle, I couldn't not stop by and check up on the furbabies! thanks so much for your kind words, it's going to be a topsy turvy few months for us whatever happens at the end of it. It's taken me 2 hours this morning to trim one lavender bush and pull a few weeds - I just don't have the strength and energy anymore with this immune disease, so tidying the garden could take a while! I'll certainly keep in touch and will drop by to see your fabulous card creations and how the furbabies are doing - and of course looking forward to the new season! hugs, annie x
