In Pasture

8 Aug

We’ve been horribly dry for quite a while again.  Once the rain stopped drowning us, it just quit.  I’ve had to water my “garden” and the ground is cracked.  We’ve had only had a few sprinkles since the hay was made.

The grass was turning brown.

I’m glad we got the hay made.  After my bales were put in the barn, my nephew made the rest into round bales.  They work well for scratching against.

Orpheus wasn’t too sure about that huge thing at first.

The bales have since been moved from the pasture, but we still hadn’t had rain.

Finally, we managed to get about two tenths of an inch Sunday morning, and then we had more overnight into Monday.

It’s was still dry, but that was certainly a big help.  Then we had more rain.  Last night, we even had rain and sun at the same time when a tiny cell went over us.

Hopefully, it will really let the pastures grow again.
