Spring Equinox

Spring has officially arrived.

 My first tulip of the season is nearly out.

Tulip Sunday is this Sunday.
I look forward to tip toeing around the tulips.

 Coco and Omar.... don't their tails speak volumes of how happy they are.
 Omar is trying to work out if he is going to jump on top of the shelf over the doorway or not.

Sterling and his panther cheeks ... soo cute.

 Our three old hens have started laying again. AMAZING. They are so geriatric gosh they must be 11 or 13 years old and they keep on going. The large egg is one of the geese's. Since the nest was raided (by us as we do not want any goslings) the girls have started laying more eggs... we are going to have to be extremely vigilant.

 The door is opened and the race is on to get to the scratching pole.
Sterling has a fun trick. While trying to put a fresh bowl of water down he bunts my hand. The power of the bunt sends the water flying. Believe it or not he has caught me out three times. He's such a character.

Feeding time is supervised as Sterling sure likes to gobble and Coco eats very lady like. Omar has the meal time sussed and gets in first.

 The geese were a tad sad as all their eggs were taken. What a mission! The blackberry bush had to be cut back to get to the nest. I am pleased as I did not want any little goslings running about while trying to study and train a puppy.
 We have had heaps of rain in the area. Our bottom paddock has had the biggest ponds to date.

Omar. Coco and Sterling have made themselves at home. They stayed inside all weekend. No way were they going outside in the rain. Today is sunshine which I am sure they are also pleased about,
