Meet the latest member of the family – albeit more a foster one…. it’s Meriwether! 🙂
He’s a two year old Merino wether ( that’s a boy without his bits) and he’s here to eat the grass down in the small orchard.
He had been running with cattle, so has some identity issues….. and this shot was taken just after his arrival when he was still quite wild. But given a week to settle in and think things over, he’s now eating out of my hand 🙂
He’s also doing the job he’s been employed to do 🙂 Much nicer than spraying weedkiller around, don’t you think?
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
I drove past Lake Frome again today. No, I didn’t. I had to stop. To pause. To listen to the frogs. The pobblebonks. So wonderfully peaceful.
Just lately I’ve been off-line more or less, getting a different internet connection organised. Now I’m back, and will try to catch up a bit on other’s postings as well as update here ….. although the sun keeps calling me to work in the orchard!
I found this dear little creature running about my kitchen bench, (probably it had hitched a ride on produce from the garden) and as some rare afternoon light was coming in the nearby window, I grabbed my camera and took a few shots of the very tiny spider. Then had some fun processing in different ways. After I had finished photographing the spider, it was allowed to go its own way….. 🙂 It’s a very long time since I read Charlotte’s Web, but I’m thinking it’s time for a re-read.

The itsy bitsy spider (or The eensy weensy spider)
climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out. Out came the sun
and dried up all the rain.
And the itsy bitsy spider (or eensy weensy spider)
climbed up the spout again.

It has been anything but still in my little place on this earth lately. Strong winds day after day…. but at least the roof is holding on. One day, it will be still. One day the winds will stop blowing. Until then, I’ll try to find the stillness inside. 🙂
