Bonfire and Rain Showers

10 Jul

With the recent rains and still winds yesterday, we decided it was the best day we were probably going to have to light a bonfire. Shortly after we fed the bottle kids, my mom and I headed north to meet my son and nephew and his wife.  I think the deer was not expecting company.



We lit the pile of old tree stumps and branches and lumber from my garage project.  It was behind the pumpkin patch building where we have kids’ activities, so it has to be cleaned up.


We weren’t sure how well it would burn because of all the dirt, but we had a good fire going!


It didn’t completely burn up, but we’ll use the backhoe and push it together into a pile again, and hopefully we’ll get another nice day to burn.


This morning, we had a surprise rain shower.  It was supposed to stay farther north, but my farm managed to actually get about a half an inch of rain.



The geese enjoyed it.


Daisy seemed to find a way to entertain herself.

I’m not sure Llenny liked it though.  Good thing he’s tolerant of the kids.

If you want to participate in Friday’s Hunt next week, I have the items listed at the top of my side bar.

      Thanks! I’m glad it looks cooler. We are really hot this summer and humid, but it’s been a little better lately.

      The rain was perfect! Llenny really is a very sweet guy. I’m glad he came to our farm.

    Sorry to be slow in making my comments! I thought your bonfire was quite impressive! Almost on a par with some that our son in law has done!

    I have to feel a bit sorry for Llenny, having to put up with Daisy on his back! He must be quite patient. Good for him.

      I was impressed the fire did as well as it did. There was a lot of dirt on the pile with the tree stumps.
