Goats / Tulip

Posted in Animals, Flowers, Landscape, Nature, Plants by joncrispin on 12/05/2014

I have always liked goats, and my friend Tania Werbizky really likes goats.  I was driving through Hadley this afternoon and I passed these guys.  I stopped, took a few photos and then just as I was about to leave, a trailer pulled up with MORE GOATS!   That is why most of these ones are looking to the right.  The new arrivals were let into the field and all these guys ran over to greet them.  Some head-butting was noted.

About 10 years ago I planted a bunch of daffodil and tulip bulbs.  At the time I remember reading that the daffs would keep coming up annually, but that the tulips had a life of around five years.  This is the last of them to flower; a lone red tulip in the middle of daffs and baby’s breath.  I’ll be surprised if it comes back next year, but this one showed some resilience.

    If you want a good photo opportunity, check out The Tulip Festival in LaConner Washington. For a quick peek check out the post I did on it on one of my blogs. http://poetryphotosandmusingsohmy.wordpress.com/2012/03/22/skagit-valley-tulip-festival/

    We’ve got “Urban Goats” in Portland: http://thebelmontgoats.org/ but then some of you probably suspected as much 🙂

    Beautiful photo of the goats….I like goats too. We live in New Zealand and I am always seeing “sheep”, but not many goats for some reason. Goats seem to have their own personality and attitude…the flower is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
