|Paris and Rosa|
It really was such a blessing dropped in our lap.
A couple of people commented on the post last month with the pic caption, Snow on the Pyrenees. It was of course a play on words for our beloved Pyrenees Rosa in a snowstorm. It's a great picture that I have posted frequently when it snows. Rosa has been very ill lately and we were getting very worried about not only losing her, but who would guard the flock until the puppy we are getting from Bill's cousin grows up. It takes a couple of years to make a good trustworthy guardian dog...even the best of them want to play.
As you all know, most of our animals on the farm are named after Flowers or plants or something to do with farming but Paris will stay Paris...it just fits, she's kind of a fancy girl for a farm dog.
Something else we picked up in Mexico in October were a couple of ewes that we named Fern and Ivy. This is Ivy's new lamb. My friend Chrissy says her name is Jewel, when I protested that it was not a farm name she said, "isn't there a flower called Jewel...weed?" So I can't argue with that.
