Of Daffodils and Goats . . .

Pin It

I was up early last Saturday morning taking photos of the dew-laden daffodils that each spring beautify an otherwise ugly black plastic pot on my back deck.

Then we went off to shop the first farmers market of the season - Yay!  (Photos coming.)

When we returned home we were greeted by this:

Courtesy of our neighbor's goat.  A not unfriendly, perfectly nice goat that shouldn't be able to walk into our yard at will, but seems to do so anyway.

Here are a few more photos from early last week:

I really hope that goat got a bellyache.

I saw yellow daffodils in Brooklyn Museum Garden. And I bought them for my room at Manhattan. I thought California is more hot, but Daffodils blooming.^^

I had to laugh at the end when you wished the goat a belly ache. I would say, well the daffys dont last long anyway so the goat had a treat. Then I would put a fence around everything in its sight!

Below, the mare, spider and hens are saying welcome spring!

Hi Sylvia. Yes, we had blue skies for a few days with really cold north winds. Ma Nature is not letting us off lightly this spring.

California usually is very hot by this time of year, Maki. But spring is very late this year, especially where I live, high on the north coast. ^^

Interestingly enough, Skeeter, our property is fully fenced, but this is one wiley goat. I've found out it doesn't like being squirted with a garden hose. ;)
Glad you like my horse photo - I do too.

Beautiful daffodils--I've always been "going" to plant some pink one. Next year!!! I do love all the varieties they have come up with-such lovely shades of pink, yellow, and orange. Sorry about the goats. Have a lovely day. Mickie :)

Christine said...

I do the same thing, Mickie. I think, oh this year I'll plant more daffs, in more varieties and colors. But I never do. Maybe this fall ... We could remind each other. :)
