Partly cloudy, with extended periods of gloom

A little sunshine would be nice. Just for 5 minutes, that's all I ask. We've had nothing but cloudy, cloudy with snow, cloudy with sleet, cloudy with wind, cloudy cloudy cloudy. And gloom.
(The last sunny day I can remember was in early December. I'm not kidding.)

I was hoping for some light, to get a decent picture or two of the sheepies. We'll all have to settle for these, instead.
I took a raft of pictures, but I think my memory card is dying. All the photos with Onyx in them didn't save. (Poor Onyx. And she loves getting her picture taken...)

Here's Merlin, with Goldie peeking around him from a safe distance.

But I did get a good shot of Goldie, looking thoughtful. Or maybe just staring blankly. It's hard to tell with sheep.

Caught Merlin daydreaming...

And, since I've sorely neglected to take pictures of the bunnies, here's the girls:

That's Clover on the left, and Jane on the right. (And if you're wondering how I can tell the difference (or even if it matters) - Jane has a lazy left ear. It droops anytime she isn't 100% alert. (She's also shyer than Clover, but that's hard to tell from a picture.))
And here's our boy, Stiffler. He isn't really grumpy - he's just hopping forward to see if I'm going to give him some more hay.

And, of course, I have to give equal time to the chickens, or I'll never hear the end of it.


They do keep an eye on me...

Wow look at the coat on them sheepies. They look snug as a bug in their rugs. And the gloomy part? Same here. But snow's all gone except for dirty gray snowbanks.

You are just south enough that I think storms are hitting you that aren't hitting me. We've had sunshine up here a few days (not today). Those sheep look WARM!

Sunshine in winter is so welcome, I hope you get some soon! Love the photos of the crew.

I feel you pain, Babe. Here in SE Michigan, I can't remember the last time we had sun. It might have been August. I like seeing pictures of all the farm kids. Thanks.

Sunshine tomorrow in Vermont. The many, many, many cloudy days that we have here in this state makes it difficult. I miss the sunrises and sunsets of my home State of Maine.

Love the chickens caught in the flash. And those sheepies...I'll bet you are salivating for fleece about now.

Here in the other corner of the country, we've had cloudy, cloudy with rain, cloudy with snow, cloudy with sleet, cloudy with fog, cloudy with freezing fog, and cloudy with sleet. Did I mention that it's been cloudy? Oh, and it's dark by 4:00 p.m. I'd give my eye teeth for an hour of sunshine right about now.
