A quieter time

As I was driving one cloudy April day I stopped by to visit the sheep and with their new babies. 
Only 2 this time.

They were curious and came right up to greet me.
They get a lot of visitors on this busy road. 

I had no treats for them so they nibbled on this wild barberry bush. It's on the  invasive species list by the way.
Maybe we all need to have sheep to munch it down to keep
 it under control?

Isn't that the sweetest face you've ever seen?

I swear they will try to eat anything!

This one is a little tough!

Thanks for letting me share a quiet and unhurried moment I had 
back in early April. 

Life has been in hyper mode ......

can't wait to get back to normal:)

whatever that is?

Oh my gosh!!!! Those little sweet faces!!!!! Just too cute! Thanks for sharing - if you ever find out how to introduce "normal" back into life, I'd be interested to hear about how to get there ;)

Beautiful,idyllic calming and restful. Wish we could have had more time together the other night... but happy to have been able to see you if only for a short while. Maybe in the fall...when things quiet down...we can do it again! :)

They really are so sweet. I would have stopped to take them in, too.

Quiet? Normal? That never seems to be in your vocabulary. I do not know anyone who works more or harder than you. Glad to see you have your moments of respite.

Dear Carole, happy that you could sneak in a quiet moment,
and these little darlings would do it for me too! Love sheep, what is it about them?? You must be glad you are busy, but I know that it can take it's toll....glad to see you have surfaced for a bit.....N.XO

Hope all is happy at your house, Carole!

I have been wanting goats for the longest time! Maybe I can convince my husband they would look great with the cattle!
I feel calmer just looking at these sweet photos! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Carole, I'm finally back in blogland and try to catch up. Let's see what I've missed. OMG, you got a doggie! Congratulations on sweet Petey!!! You have to tell me everything about him. He must get along quite well with the cats, otherwise you wouldn't have chosen him, I guess. It's wonderful that you have given a home to a poor rescued dog.
Congrats as well on winning dear Suzy's beautiful giveaway!!! I'm so happy for you.
I love your sweet sheep pictures. We do see a lot of sheep here. There was a cute one I fell in love with. It was spotted beige and brown.
Have a lovely Sunday, my friend :-)!
Big hugs,

Dear Carole
These baby lamb images are so beautiful - thank you for bringing a little more of the "real world" feel to blogland.
We all love this world so much! I must post some of our gorgeous Angora goats one of these days. They too are so adorable.
These images bring a bit of sanity to our hyper paced lives.
Thank you so much for that!
Warm hugs,

Hi, dearest Carole, did I ever tell you that I LOVE sheep? I really would like to have some of them, but I'm afraid they would EAT UP MY WHOLE GARDEN!!! ;o)
Hugs, Traude

Evi said...

oh, how sweet. Just love them!
Mostly see them at the wool and sheep festival...not so sweet. They always look so scared, which breakes my heart...

Hi Carole
I have returned to have another peak at these gorgeous sheep!
I hope you have had some lovely moments of down time with quietness and peace.
Thank you for visiting and leaving such a sweet comment.
Big warm hugs,

Hi Carole,

Love the sweet sheep and yes, nothing cuter than lambs frolicking around in the paddock. Great photos and hope that life will soon slow down a little... life in hyper mode sounds too busy.

Happy new week
