New Life on Rambellwood Farm

Excitement swelled into our teeming kitchen yesterday afternoon.  The beef was left to brown itself, the cilantro to wash its own green leaves, while we followed Matthew's bare feet out to the field...

To watch Dad carry the new calf toward us in his arms, the sun weaving its golden thread into the green of the grass.

The calf was hardly two hours old, with bright brown eyes... a darling little thing with little white spots..

An awakening of life on our newly named farm, Rambellwood.

May your spring bloom with joy,

Aw, Yay!! I'm so excited for ya'll! The new calf is sooo cute. =D
Oh and I LOVE the name you chose for your farm! Yay! I was wondering a few days ago if you had reached a decision on that point; you mentioned to me the first time we visited ya'll that you were thinking of a name for your farm, but I hadn't heard anything since then--so I'm so glad to hear you finally did find a name for it. And such a lovely name! =) It fits well. =)

love and miss,
