Taking Her Time

We’d been wondering why our goat Madonna was taking so long to kid.  A couple of days ago she finally had her babies and what a cute pair they are.

After the sometimes brutal kidding season this winter, it feels good to end it on an upbeat and positive note.

We also had this good news.

But so far there have only been two spears. We’ve never had the asparagus take so long to start coming up–which has me worried.  But my mother just told me that the hummingbirds have just arrived, about a month later than last year.  So maybe nature is just taking her time this year.
