Today we had another new red baby bull calf - that makes 3 red bull calves for the place
Mother.

Newest one (^her calf^)...note the white tip on this tail



Simbrah calf...he has yet to get to play with the other 2 calves due to a fence between them


Found a shed antler today - nothing big but still cool to find


Looks like the Dogwoods are coming out - wish I would have had my camera on color rather than B&W

The legend of the dogwood
There is a Christian legend of unknown origin that proclaims that the cross used to crucify Jesus was constructed of dogwood. As the story goes, during the time of Jesus, the dogwood was larger and stronger than it is today and was the largest tree in the area of Jerusalem. After his crucifixion, Jesus changed the plant to its current form: he shortened it and twisted its branches to assure an end to its use for the construction of crosses. He also transformed its inflorescence into a representation of the crucifixion itself, with the four white bracts cross-shaped, which represent the four corners of the cross, each bearing a rusty indentation as of a nail and the red stamens of the flower, represents Jesus' crown of thorns, and the clustered red fruit represent his blood
