Speaking of the cycle of life (previous post):
Life is about to explode on the farm these days. Not just in the trees where the birds are singing like maniacs and the leaves are popping out, or in the ditches and meadows where new types of flowers show their beauty every day. As I write this, I can hear the chirping of baby chicks in the nesting machine next to me (yes, my office is both an office and a chicken incubator), one has hatched already and more will come during the night and morning hours. In the sheep pen, we have ten round bellied mamas-to-be, ready to pop any day, and our beautiful cow Daisy is again about to become a mama, any time during the next three weeks. Busy and exciting times!
