The topics for this week’s scavenger hunt are: tools, motion, sweet, dots, stripes.
I mentioned that we were going to bale hay soon. My nephew came with his powerful tools and mowed the field on Thursday.
You can see the motion of the grass as it’s cut and comes through the back of the discbine.
On Friday, I got to admire those beautiful stripes of cut grass on the back hills.
I went for a walk that evening, and enjoyed the sweet smell of freshly cut hay. The llama thought it made a nice soft bed.
The goats thought it made it a lot easier to walk in the pasture.
I did not enjoy the thistles that dotted the landscape, even though the goats find them delicious.
The bokeh made for a lovely dot effect in the photos though.
This morning, he came out with more handy tools and raked the hay into windrows, so we could bale it. His motion was quick to try and get it ready to bale.
It cleared up, but there have been several more of those downpours.
Baling is now put off until Monday, and I’m mad at Mother Nature because I even asked please for dry weather to get my hay made.
