Critters and flowers
I could feel someone was watching me and sure enough the neighbours llamas were keeping an eye on me.
Twice a day I walk the paddocks looking for more lambs. It is one of my favourite parts of my day as I get to watch all the new lambs frolic about. The paddocks are very wet with all the rain - not the best for the poor old ewes feet.
Here in New Zealand the 1st of September is often known as the first day of spring. But I prefer to follow the astronomical seasons as many scientists, astronomers, Wiccans and Pagans do. Therefore spring is not until the Spring Equinox which is on 23rd September in New Zealand and in the Northern Hemisphere it is the Autumn Equinox, the end of their summer, beginning of their fall or as we call it autumn,
If your a homeschooler or just want to learn more about seasons this is a fab website to explain the seasons.
I'm itching for a fine day to weed around them so I can take some pretty photos to show you all. Won't be today as again we have rain. Another day to be indoors - which is good as I have loads and loads of study to do.
