Another day, another lamb
This season’s fourth lamb was born this evening. So far this year we have had all ram lambs. A thunderstorm was coming in from Bedford/Peaks of Otter during labor, but everyone is tucked away for the night and still the rain isn’t here yet. I’m hoping for a soaking, because all kinds of herbs – lemon verbena, marjorams, cilantro, cutting celery, bay, lavender, lion’s mane, lemon thyme, calendula – went in to the ground today. Finally.
Tonight in the sheep pasture Sophie saw a firefly. I’m glad there is something out there besides cicadas. One of our khaki Campbell ducks eats cicadas – I saw her in the front yard eating them off of the fennel and echinacea, and then she hopped in the baby pool that I’d forgotten to empty. No pictures of that, but here is the new lamb, and a tiny glimpse of Molly the puppy, too. Good night.
