It’s only a very small and very young orchard, but we still call it the orchard. We’re growing a few different apples and cherries, and probably some other fruits (I’m not a fruit expert so we’ll see what happens when fruit eventually appears on the boughs!).
The weather is starting to get rather beautiful, and at the end of the day we all ventured down to the orchard to mulch the trees and have a look around.
Here are some blossoms. What I like about these photos is the contrast of colours, with the white and pink and blue and green. I bought a new camera before Elora was born and I love it!
The view from the orchard: priceless
Another pretty blossom:
(this photo makes me imagine what she was like all curled up inside me just 3 weeks ago…)
Introducing our new goats, No-name
With all the excitement of having the family out and about just by the goats’ paddock, Anna decided to break free. Here she is outside her fence, with her daughter, Giddy, pondering how she will make her own exit.
d’Art is a good at rounding-up the goats, which is enjoyable to watch, but even with the dog’s help, and the aide of apples, Anna didn’t go inside the fence until she did so on her own terms. Now Anna and Giddy sometimes break free, sit on the driveway for a while, and then go back inside the fence. Hmm. Strange animals.
Unfortunately I could not get clear photos of Georgia and Matthew running free around the property that afternoon. They chased eachother and got a very good amount of fresh air and exercise! Even I traipsed about with Elora in the sling. It was a lot of fun!
I like all the green in this post. Green is Monte’s favourite colour.
