Magnolia Skies

I love my magnolia tree when it’s in full bloom.

It is, however, a challenge to get a picture to show its beauty.

There are other trees and buildings all around it, and I can only manage to get the bottom of the blossoms.

It does make a good backdrop when a goat is standing in the right spot.

I figured, I’d pick a bloom to show off its true beauty.

As long as I was at it, I thought I’d let Millie wear it between her horns, but she was not amused.  She just stared out the gate and wouldn’t look at me.  When she did finally turn around,

she just ate my flower.  Then she went back to staring out the gate.  She doesn’t even look the least bit sorry.

Oh well.

I still have a lot more to enjoy.

Rainy Days

We’re still in this rainy pattern that’s impacting a huge portion of the country.

I’m really glad that we are just on the edge of it, and nothing has been severe.

We all like the sunshine better than the gray skies.  Except the geese don’t seem to care.

It does make the grass turn green; however, and everyone likes nice green pastures!


Hopefully, I’ll get all my  new moms out on the front pasture this weekend when we have some sunshine again.  Then I can take pictures outside instead of through the window too.

Cloudy Skies

Today was another cool cloudy day, nearly hiding the sun.  That’s not a complaint considering the tornadoes and snow and all kinds of bad weather around us.  It’s just an observation.


I’m also pleased to say that by the time we start kidding this weekend or early next week, the weather should be perfect!  Now I might be gloating a little bit, but please don’t hold it against me. I’m very grateful for this good kidding weather.
