New Ram, Volunteer, and Flowers

This past weekend my brother in law picked up our new ram.  He was born this year and should carry the spotted gene, so we may get spotted lambs in the future.  His current working name is Abraham Lincoln, I think it will stick.  I like the look of him.

Along the barn I had put some pots with hostas that we had transplanted from my parents’ house.  Next to them I found a pumpkin plant.  Last year we had some pumpkins there and a seed must have started.  So we have a volunteer pumpkin plant.

Despite the slow start to the wildflower patch around the septic tank, it is really taking off.  I don’t think that the pictures do it justice, but here’s one.

  1. Very cute! I also love the wildflower yard you have going on – so much prettier and interesting than grass!
