spring loves ~

hi everybody ~ how's it comin' in the spring department in your 'neck of the woods?'

our weather has been just a tad bit unsteady ~just like a new born calf~
 and just as serious {at times} as a mamma cow!


the snow drifts are thinning ~ much like the long winter coat from the cattle as the fence does double duty!  

 these were all taken on easter... it was a gorgeous spring day...
 spider, the {mostly retired} old cattle horse is taking it easy... nonchalantly ~ which is what spring seems to be doing on most days.  taking it's sweet time...
it's all good... and so spectacular.
 and nothing quite as sweet as a new bunch of baby pups!  {border collies}, that is!  same mom and pop as our sweet georgia girl.  there is eight in this litter.  anyone want a pup?  i know how you can get one {or two!}  lol  {seriously though ~ i do!}  i call this picture the 'puppy wars' ~ taken at easter when they were only 3 weeks old.  how cute is that?  uhhh well, it will only get cuter... gotta get back out there soon... now they are five weeks old!  already biting each other, playing and testing who's boss...
 speaking of easter... we had a BLAST.  sweet, sweet time on the ranch.  here's a shot of the easter egg hunt!  lisa {the older kid} trying to beat the {youngers} to the goodies!  what joy and laughter.




 precious memories!  


what a beautiful easter at the swan ranch.  thank you thank you thank you!!!!
 and before we know it ~ summer will be here.  but in the meantime, we can enjoy all that sweet newness of life!  cold, snow... blowing.  bring it on.  spring is comin' down the pipe, and we're ready for it!!
 as we left the ranch, this new baby just happened to be by the road, and i was lucky to get close enough to snap this picture without spooking the momma. 



ahhh... spring!  so glad you are here... 
even though you change your mind so very often!
we're so thankful ~
have a great weekend!

Wonderful weather and pics! thanks for sharing, but where's the Easter bunny? I mean the furry kind? Ha-Ha. Thought there'd be some hopping around that nice back-yard.... I would LOVE to live there!

My life has been hectic and busy of late and today I realized I had not seen an updated blog entry from you in a while. Seeing I had missed many posts, I scrolled back and read where you noted others have had some difficulties as well. Well, I am a dork when it comes to these glitches, but eventually I will figure out the issue. For now I will just drop by more regularly to see what wonderful thing you have been creating.

Your Easter looks like it was a blast! Oh, and those puppies are so adorable. Love them!

I'm still trying to figure out why I cannot get your blog to show up in my feed. Since Reader is going away, I am transitioning to Feedly which I started yesterday (it's a breeze too) but Feedly won't pick up any of your posts after March 6th. Oh well, I'll just give your site an in person visit regularly!

Have a beautiful and blessed day!
