Black bear visit.

Yesterday we've had a unexpected visit. A young bear found its way to our neck of the woods. He must be looking for a nice comfortable place to dig his den for winter.

Artist's Statement

Artists speak for themselves, usually, this is just too funny!

Mo Rocca eats crow ...

Mo Rocca eats crow, but learns the valuable art of knitting... as long as it he doesn't confuse it with crocheting.

Sort of funny video, I like listening to the Wait, wait don't tell me, nice radio show on Saturdays.

Almost Ready for Autumn

A new pair of socks, a few more rounds. Love the color combination, 100% wool, warm and toasty.

Moving the office outside

It got a bit hot in the last few days, so I moved my office into the wood shed behind the house. There is a nice breath and I even have a new assistant, English Patient, he is just as baffled as I am at the new websites I am creating.

Great Friday

Sorry to hear about the East coast baking in that awful heat. What? Climate change? We're having wonderful days, a bit of rain last night gently watered the garden, hopefully our tomatoes will get the message and start turning fruit soon. Everything else is growing beautifully, peas, lettuce, swiss chard, my all time favorite and of course we pick strawberries every day- several cups. Thank you chickens and thank you sheep for your not so sudden contributions to our little ecosystem.

and here is a bit on fun on the set, these are the good times on the film sets I sort of miss, other then that glad hollywood days are long gone from my repertoire ...

An unexpected wolf visit

Yesterday afternoon we had an unexpected visit from a wolf. We spotted him calmly sitting on a hill above the pasture where the sheep were grazing. It was the chickens who created a noisy and loud ruckus, sheep correctly ran into their pen and we observed the wolf with binoculars. Unfortunately not enough time to grab the camera. After a few minutes the wolf slowly got up, turned and walked into the woods.
This is the closest image I found online.

Sheering

Yesterday we sheered our little flock! I will post images later today. What an experience, I think it was more traumatic for me then for the sheep. They sure did not want to cooperate. As Martin said the more pets they are the less cooperative they are. And aren't these first class pets! All is well and they happily running around without all that weight of one year fleece. Speaking of their fleece- looks very very nice and very very soft. Now cleaning, all all the steps to turn the fleece to a nice yarn. Will keep you posted, documenting all the steps with images of course.

Spring Hair Cut ... Visit to Lee's Farm

Last Monday my friend Lee had her entire flock of sheep sheered. It was rainy in the morning but soon the wind pushed the clouds and the sun came out. The sheep very a bit cold but as Lee said today they are used it by now. See more image on my flickr page.
