Medias in Res - Definition

"Medias in res" is a latin term for when the story starts in the middle and not necessarily at the beginning. You join us here at LARK'S MEADOW FARMS in the middle of a story that began long ago and is far from its conclusion. We are learning along the way and we hope that you will come along on our journey. There is much to explore in the world of cheese!

Passers By

While we receive reports from other parts of the country that they are already picking food from their plants, gardening season has just barely come to Rexburg. We were delighted this last week to finally see the flowering trees blooming and to feel that warm weather is truly here to stay.
I say that with hope and a will for it to be so, but Susie is already predicting one last snow flurry here in June sometime, so we will hide and watch.

Each year at this time we get a large influx of birds and the morning air is full of a cacophony of avian songs. One temporary visitor that migrates through on the way to Yellowstone Lake each year is the Franklin Gull. On some days, if you have the time, you can sit for hours and watch as group after group pass by overhead, squawking to each other and all heading in the same direction.

This year they seemed to think that our flooded field was a nice stopping off point and a whole group of them paused for a snack and refreshment before they continued their journey. Like most gulls, their voices are not as pleasant as other birds, but their appearance is sleek and their antics are entertaining as they pass by.
