~ Twin Calves and Some More of the Beauties of June ~


Last week, we were most delightfully surprised by the (joint) arrival of these two cute little friends! :-)















And...a few more recent farm additions and early summer beauties...

    1. Thank you, Reyna! And thank you so much for commenting! The two calves are a Jersey-Fleckvieh cross. ...And they're both heifers! (So we're pretty excited about that. :-))

    1. Sarah, thank you and thank you so much for commenting! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Yes, the calves are super cute... We have them in a paddock near the house and they've been proving quite the distraction! :-)

  4. Chickory and Queen Anne's Lace are my favorite wildflowers. I see Chickory along the road around here a lot, but I haven't seen any QAL for a long time. It makes me miss my country girlhood in Michigan!

    1. Kindred spirits!! :-) I love that chicory and Queen Anne's Lace! Growing up in western Washington, we always had more bleeding hearts and forget-me-not's (which we loved picking), but the Queen Anne's Lace makes me feel so story-bookish--Anne of Green Gables-ish or something. Oh! And what'd you think of the calves?

  5. How beautiful the animals are...and cute! May I ask what kind of chicks you have, for they are adorable! The flowers are stunning as well, especially the Queen Anne's Lace - it's been my favorite since childhood. :-)

    1. Thank you, Sarah! :-)

      I think they're Brown Leghorns, which is a different breed than we've had before, so we're curious to see how they'll turn out. They're supposed to be good layers. And I agree! the Queen Anne's Lace is just beautiful. :-)

    2. All of your animals are precious! Have you chosen names for the caffs yet? We've had Leghorns before and our hen was an excellent mother - we always liked the way she was with her chicks (actually they weren't hers, she stole some other hens eggs!): very gentle and sweet. Our female Leghorn Lady was a very good setter as well - whenever there was a stray egg she would almost always try and hatch it out. :)

      Whenever I see Queen Anne's Lace I am always reminded of the fun times with my sister when we were little...AND Anne of Green Gables "It's the last Queen Anne's Lace of the summer."

    3. I agree! And they can be sooo much fun. :-) And no, we're still working on names... That's so funny about your Leghorn hens! They can actually have quite the personality, can't they? (Or whatever it's called in a chicken. :-))

      And exactly! It makes me feel so story-bookish to the Queen Anne's Lace growing across the pastures and about the house. There's just something about it... :-)
