Wild Rose

5 Jun

Did you ever have one of those days that was so hectic and busy you couldn’t even find the energy to blog about it?  That was my day.  That means you get a wild rose for today.

Tomorrow, I’ll start filling you in on today.

It might take the rest of the week.  I will be around to visit all my Friday’s Hunt participants as soon as I can.  I have updated my sidebar with the items for next Friday.

Sharing with Macro Monday, Monday Mellow Yellows and Shadow Shot Sunday.

Goats and Goslings

29 May

Last night Vixen didn’t want to go back out to pasture.  She was trying to rest in the Love Shack, but the geese on nests tried biting at her when she was trying to get comfortable.  So I put a panel across keeping her safe from the geese.  Bud also decided he didn’t want to go out to pasture.  He hurt his back leg and I think the meds the vet gave him were wearing off.  I gave him another dose of pain killer/anti-inflammatory medicine, but he was flopped out (on top of a goose nest) acting like he was dying.  The other goose on her nest thought he was a bit melodramatic.

Bud was feeling better again this morning, and he went out to pasture.  I do still have Vixen shut in.  I’m not sure when she’s due, but her udder is big enough she’s rubbing it raw (the little pink triangle).  I figure she can rest and eat hay in the Love Shack until she kids.



When I went to go get her some hay, I opened the door and saw this.


When I came back to show my mom, there was another gosling!


Aren’t they cute! I love how they are snuggled together!  With so many eggs left under her, who knows how many she’ll end up with.


Hopefully, someone will be able to actually raise one or two.

Finally, here’s random picture of my goofy Fionn.


He had been trying to head butt a fence post when I said his name.

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

Today I’m sharing with The Good. The Random. The Fun., Monday Mellow Yellows, Macro Monday.

Weekend Hodgepodge

22 May

As summer gets closer, the bleeding hearts are almost done blooming.  This one still looked pretty though.

While I was working in the garden this weekend, (more on that in a later post) I saw a butterfly.  It flew all over and when it finally settled, it was on me.

It was kind enough to move to the peony and pose there too.



The peonies are getting closer to blooming.



The little squirrels are still making me smile.  This one seems to be a natural model.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt, I have the items for the next one listed in my sidebar.
