Overnight, it seems, the tulips have bloomed! The bright harbingers of spring.  Now every time I step out the back door I see new blooms and new growth. The earth is waking from its winter sleep.

Willoughby was born to Charlotte late Saturday night, and is thriving and full of energy.  It is my first time to experience the playfulness of a lamb and it is truly a joyful thing to see. It is also a delight to watch mama Charlotte interact with him. She lets us know if we get too close (those mamas are protective!)

Our first spring on this little homestead of ours is going to be a lovely one!
