Comings And Goings

All the lambs have gone to their new homes.

In July the fab four, (Sienna, Violet, China and little Pearl), were off to live on Galiano Island with Sarah and her family.

And mid-August the little boys, Umber and Amber were off  to live with dogs and chickens at Joanna's in Agissiz.

All the lambs got to travel extensively on BC Ferries !
 We were very well treated with priority boarding.

We have a couple of new additions at Periwinkle,

First, a BIG beautiful black cat has come to live with us. His job is to keep the pests down outside. Our old cat, Mr Sylvester, stayed  from when Phyllis and Mike lived here and was with us for five years. He went out and did not come back a few weeks ago. Very sad, he was quite old.

Our new, (old) cat came from the SPCA.

He settled in right away. He's a very laid back cat.

The second additon is our little kitten.

Again, you can see she's made herself at home in amongst the knitting.

We call them Jem and Scout, as in to Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, one of my favourite books. This year is the 50th anniversary of it's publication, so quite fitting we thought.

Came across your blog through your photos on Flickr. What great sheep and lamb photos you have! I have sheep as well,Cotswold mixes, but I have to admit that the Southdown lambs might just be the cutest! I'll add you to my Favorites.
