Chihuly in Denver Botanic Gardens

Dale Chihuly is a glass sculpture artist.  He has developed glass blowing as a fine art in very large proportion.  His exhibit is installed at the Denver Botanical Gardens.  It is absolutely amazing.  This morning I was intent on getting there early because I have heard that it is so crowded there is no parking to be found.  Oh, yes, it's free first Monday.  No luck on a parking spot today.  But early was good: the light was good, the sky was clear and the temperature was still in the 70s.  Enjoy!

This is Iris.  She is the prettiest little goat.  Her mommy is white.  Her daddy is tan.  Out pops this black and brown, beautifully marked goat.  Besides being the pretty girl she is she also has the least fear of her siblings.  She jumps the highest, twists twice in the air and prances around like life is the best.  She goes to her new home soon and I will miss her.  Although my watercolors are getting little use these days I did have to pull them out and paint Iris so that I won't forget even one little mark on her face.  Here's Iris:

What's new in the garden?

I have been so focused on my goat families that my garden has been somewhat forgotten.  Not really. All the spring work has been done and now I just have to water, sit back and enjoy the harvest.  This year I have a few new stars:  allium blossoms, a Grand Canyon Sunset iris and cherries!!!!

Goat Babies- 1 month old

Here's a new video of the goat babies leaping and jumping with twists added in.  They are so darn cute I can't stand it.  Iris is a beautiful little goat who loves to jump and twist the most.  Willow has a mother who is too protective but when she gets away she is so sweet and loving.  Jack.  Oh my Jack has had a tough couple of weeks.  His disbudding of his horns did not go well.  He has been healing well with lots of goat doctoring which he hates.  I think he's going to make it. I start and end my day with these little guys.  It is the best.  On Saturdays I collect my milk and start making cheese.  This week it was chèvre and yogurt.  Life is good on the farm here in Denver
