Unskirted, unclean wool
The boys moved the electric fence and the sheep have new pasture to graze in. They were all so excited as we opened the gate to let them out. This little ewe lamb, Dove, was jumping like she had springs in her feet. This was a mid-air photo. She has beautiful markings and she's going to have gorgeous wool.

The gardens are enjoying the warm, muggy weather we are having. We are enjoying our first cucumbers and eagerly waiting for the green tomatoes to turn red! The cabbage has been delicious as well as the zucchini and summer squash. A variety of lettuce, mescalin mix greens, rainbow swiss chard and easter egg radishes make great salads at dinner time. My pole beans are struggling and I think it's lack of water. The bush beans are flowered with little beans on them so we will have a harvest. Not at big as I planned but the pole beans may surprise me.
The bee balm patch is huge this year. The butterflies are loving it! In years past my bee balm gets mold before it flowers but not a sign of it this year. The other day we saw a dozen butterflies at one time. It was a beautiful to see them all.
