I Kid You Not.


Babies.


You can't have spring
without babies,

fragile and awkward,
tiny and soft,
trusting and fearful.
This one
only two days old
seems surprised to be 
in this bright new world.
Maaaa!
Maaaa!
Where are you?






Among the new ones,
there is always
an adventurer,
a troublemaker,
an explorer
wanting to be
out of the stable
beyond the fence
King of the Mountain.
(On a friends farm)

Oh----aren't they just precious, Tabor? I love to see all of the baby 'critters' in spring... I think the parent (parents) do a better job with their babies than we humans do sometimes with our babies... We could learn from them...

Here at home, I love watching the Daddy birds teach the little ones to eat at the feeders.

Hope you had a great week. We enjoyed being at the beach so much.
Hugs,
Betsy

You made me smile - a neighbor has baby goats on his property and I want to take my little granddaughter's to see them.
They are precious.

There's always at least one troublemaker :) They're all so cute! And to think, our daughter wants to raise some. I'm afraid for my gardens!
