Sunny Sky?

28 Apr

We’ve had rainy weather for the last couple of days.

I’m grateful we’ve had a good soaking rain, and we haven’t had any of the severe weather other places have seen.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  The items are at the top of my sidebar.

Brindle and Bode

27 Apr

If you’ve been hanging out here since the kids were born last month, you probably remember that Penny was having a hard time feeding both of her kids.  Brindle was doing well, but Bode was starving.  We tubed him and I squirted milk down his throat, and he was finally doing better.

Well, I think he’s not even skinny now.

He certainly acts like he’s feeling good.

You can still tell he’s smaller than his sister.  It was obvious when I was trying to get a “tail count” shot for next year.

I will say, though, he’s doing pretty darn good.  That warms my heart.

An Adorable Surprise

26 Apr

Can you tell what this is?


How about now?


Lucy finally hatched (at least) a gosling.



I’m very happy for her.



If you don’t think these are wild birds, here’s what was hissing at me the whole time I was trying to take a picture of the baby.


They are very protective parents.  But if those are not wild enough birds for you, here is a trio of barn swallows.


The bluebird couple was still out in pasture.


I hope they will have a nest out there!
