All birds are back again...

"Alle Vögel sind schon da! "       "All birds are back again! "

That is how a german folk song starts from Hoffmann von Fallersleben.
Oh yes, the birds are back.
I love to wake up with the birds in the morning they all sing spring is here, spring is here....!
And they are so busy preparing their nests.
I always leave them some colorful wool outside on my porch.
Oh and they all  come and collect it. They want their little design nests I imagine!

More lambs!

The black ones arrived! 
I took these pictures this morning.
They are just so sweet!
I can not decide which picture is the cutest.

This breed is called "Skudden" it is the smallest breed in Germany.
They reach up to my waist.

Me with "Kuschel" he is getting a nice scratch for being such a good model!

First day of school!

Dear readers, 
I finished this weekend an order for a little boy who is coming to school this year.  What a big day!
In Germany it is tradition that every child at the first day of school (first grade) gets a school cone.
Usually parents (Moms ) make them and they are filled with lots of goodies. Special pencils, unique pencil sharpeners, rulers ..... Anything that is needed to be a big school child.
Of course some candy is also included!
So this little boy gets a school buddy in his cone as well.
I hope he likes it!

The Frog King from the Ammersee

Dear readers, 
I finally finished the Frog King.

He is going to live inside the Ammersee in South Germany.
He does come outside from time to time to visit his friend a cow which lives on a farm close by.
The cow gives him  hints what he has to do so the princess is going to kiss him. 
The solution is to cover him in whip cream!
Sure the princess will kiss him then!!
