« La Closerie, Ansouis - un bon cadeau | Main | New lambs »

Unique experience

Just in from working in our large vegetable garden behind our house. On the other side of the rail fence are 6 sheep, put there to feed on the grass in a relatively small area - about 1/4 of an acre. It is quite common to hear the "baa" of the sheep whenever I am in the garden. But this evening I heard a different sound as I was putting away my garden tools. It was weaker and higher pitched. I went back to the fence & saw two newborn lambs lying in the grass. I walked over to my neighbour to tell him. He thought I was talking about some young sheep over by the large sheep barn between our houses.

"No, these are two young lambs on the grass behind our garden." He came over & took the lambs and their mother back to the barn.

"That's the first time that's happened to me." he said.

Me, too.
