Outdoor Wednesday

This is my first Outdoor Wednesday post....seems kind of ironic since I spend most of my days outside. Lucky me !!!
These beautiful creatures live only a mile away from my house. The other day when I was driving to work with my husband we spotted the babies and he mentioned I should remember to take my camera so I could take some shots of them. I thought well you don't have to ask me twice. The next morning it was slightly raining when I got there and was only able to see them thru the brush along the fence that runs the property. They made their way eating what looked like bare branches and sticks while the adults ate the nice green grass. Eventually they made it to the front fence, 100 bad pics later where I could finally get a clearer view of them.

The lambs seemed to pay little attention to me until a mother and her young son showed up. One of the little guys suddenly came up close to the fence to get a better look at the boy as if to say " hey your little just like me"

A nest that's been in our Butterfly bush for a few years now though I don't think I've noticed any birds nesting in it for a long time. Isn't just so perfect? How does it stay together even after being out all's nature at it finest. We'll have to check back and see if it gets occupied this year.
Oh my beautiful Thalia daffodils all fresh and white. They bloom late and I was so worried that the heat we've had would make them pass too quickly

The past week we've had Summer like temperatures and tonight we are dipping back down to the 30's as much as my daffodils love it we're going to have to cover some of the new plants we've just gotten in.
Stay warm everyone!!!! Summer's not here yet!!!
Oh, almost forgot.....this is in honor of Sylvia from Villa Extra in Sweden who always inspires me with her Outdoor Wednesdays. I can't even come close to recreating the beautiful images and collages she makes. She's truly talented.
