Friday’s Hunt v2.16

14 Oct

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week, the topics will be:  Starts with Q, Week’s Favorite, and fall/spring.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with P: Obviously, I have pumpkins on my mind right now.  Here’s some of the pumpkins from my pumpkin patch being hauled up to sell.


Week’s Favorite:  My favorite this week was finding the time to go for a walk in the pasture and enjoying a wide variety of birds.  I shared some earlier this week, but today, I’m sharing my shot of the bluebird being photobombed by the yellow rumped warbler.

Whole:  Well, it’s not quite the whole herd, but it’s pretty close.  There is a whole hickory tree just starting to turn golden.  I will admit, this time of year I wish I had a lot more trees that have brilliant colors.


Now it’s your turn!

    Nice to see the herd behaving themselves but nearly as fun.

      ‘not’ nearly as fun.

    I enjoyed the picture of the bluebird and the yellow rumped warbler. The herd looks so peaceful! – What a nice change, eh?

    Nice looking pumpkins, good size variety. Are some of them pie pumpkins? Our daughter bought a bale of hay for her front entry decoration. Real hay from a roadside farmer. I can’t remember when I had a pumpkin pie made all the way from scratch.
    Your pasture is really pretty, a nice slope to the hill, good for sledding and practice for skiing. Iowa’s Mt. Crescent? That is where we would go if not Colorado.

      My pie pumpkins did not do well this year (weather and weeder geese). Those are all jack-o-lantern pumpkins.

    Our bluebirds are all gone. I can’t say as I blame them – it’s gotten quite chilly all of a sudden. Watching your herd is mixed for me today

      Oh. I am sorry. I hope all is well.

    That’s a cool catch of the bluebird and the yellow warbler. That’s a lot of work, but lots of fun, no doubt, to offer a pumpkin patch to the public.

    what a cute colorful birdie ! Be happy that you don’t have more trees, in a few weeks they will look all naked !

    Ah, pumpkins are the perfect autumnal treat visually! I hope you sell them all. The meadow full of goats is just beautiful…

    Those little warblers are fierce when it comes to territory!
