In May 2011, after four years of life on McNutt's Island, we moved to Montreal. This blog remains, though, as a (sort of) daily record of our time on the island, and a winding path for anyone who would like to meander about among its magical places. For additional perspectives and insights I recommend Greg's book, Island Year: Finding Nova Scotia (2010), and my Bowl of Light (2012). I'll continue to post once in a while. If you do want to read this blog, one option would be to begin at the beginning of it (which is, as we all know, in blog-world, at the end), and read forward, concluding with the most recent entry. It's a journal, really, so it does makes more sense if you read it that way. But, you know, read it any way you like.

Another sign of spring

Spring is casting its easefulness upon the island. The sheep are in the lower orchard this afternoon, the very picture of pastoral calm. Several of the flock are lying down. The closer they get to giving birth the more they will spend their time resting like this. It will be another six weeks before we expect to see new lambs, though.
