thank you, freedom



and flirta.

all gorgeous shetland sheep from rare find farm. and thanks to lynn, their sweet shepherd mama. this is the farm where my own sheepies came from, but my sheep are grey, brown and black, and i needed these pretty whites, creams and silver-greys. i especially love cassandra's fleece - she is a fawn katmoget ewe, which means she's marked like my georgie with a darker underside, but she's white on top and fawn underneath. GORjuss.

3. basking in clouds of comfort and safety
4. smelling the smell of distant rain, feeling the damp earth

  1. you gathered good! i especially love flirta's photo.

  2. serene thoughts and such beautiful photos... you can almost feel the soft touch of the wool.
    I've washed a good bit of raw sheep wool in my basement sink in the past and it is such a wonderful earthy experience...to see the wool come clean is a thrill for me...
