Change is a constant

This will be a brief post but wanted to just put a few things out there.  It's been quite a weekend. 

For one thing, it's been cold.  We had frost here this morning; good thing I haven't planted much yet!

If you read the post from yesterday, you know that Chicky and Bluebell have gone to a new home.  Today, a really nice dad and daughter drove quite a long way and took home Lily and Orchid. 

We decided some time ago that our horses would be better off somewhere else.  We've offered them for sale a couple of times, and today, they also left for a new home.  This was much more difficult then waving good-by to eight week old goats as they have been part of our family for many years. 

 






Out in the garden is the sad sight of my clematis dead and brown.  I have given it decent time to come up, and it just isn't going to.  It's just a plant I know, but a special one as I got it from a relative and amazing gardener who is gone, and I have never seen another like it.  Just when I had made up my mind to clear away the dried up remains, look what I found.




A sparrows nest!  It's only about 2" across.  It is lined with horsehair.  I think I will be keeping it when the birds are done with it.
After the horses left, it was time to settle in two new residents of Ole Lake Farm.
Yeah!  We have pigs again!

You be seeing more pictures of these guys and hearing more about them next time, but for now I need to get to bed- and don't believe the time at the bottom of this post... it's always 2 hours off and I don't know how to correct it.  In other words, I am not going to bed at 8:15... although some days I wish I could!

Thanks for stopping by the blog.  Be well friends.
