Sometimes you wind up spending so much time pulling weeds that you forget to stop and smell the roses. I wish you could smell the pale pink rose, the Milford rose, brought to Milford in the late 1700’s. It has the intense fragrance used in perfumery.

The honeysuckle is blooming too. It is a fragrance I recall from Mystic, CT where I lived for a while as a child.

The deeper pink rose is a Canadian Explorer rose that we love.

It isn't easy being green.....

All tattooed and vaccinated! The lambs get another dose of vaccine in a month.
Some are weaned already. Most of the lambs are for sale. We won’t be breeding the few ewes we will be keeping as pets. So these are our last lambs. I will really miss having such wonderful little creatures every spring, but we are just getting too old.If you are interested in some registered Finnsheep email me: Hatton at ptd dot net
