Spring Blossoms and a Surprise

17 Apr

I was worried about all my fruit trees with last week’s freeze warnings, but I’m more optimistic now.  The blossoms are just starting to open on the fruit trees. Here’s the cherry tree.

I actually have some peach blossoms this year, so I hope I get fruit from it again.  It’s been a couple of years.

The plum blossoms are a bit behind the other two.

Remember my poor apple tree that has been falling down for the last several years and the goats finally stripped the bark this spring.

Guess what!  It’s got leaves!

Not only does it have leaves, but it also has blossoms.

I don’t know how!

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

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

Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree

28 Mar

My poor apple tree is going to be missed.  It really reminds me of Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree”.  I’ve gotten apples from it four applesauce, wine, jelly, pies and just eating.  It’s still giving.  Duke and Duchess enjoy it.

Now André has joined them playing on it while Gidget watches.

Today’s post is linked to Song-ography where the song of choice this week is Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree by the Andrews Sisters.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.

Goats in the Hood

5 Mar

I once again have yard goats.  My four girls closest to kidding (at least I think they are all the closest) are in the yard so it’s easier for my mom to check them while I’m at work.

I’m pretty sure my apple tree is not going to give me fruit this year. Or ever again.

I’m pretty sure it isn’t going to survive this round of yard goats.

I have my two yearling bucks in the Love Shack.  It looks like they are just standing around smiling at how happy they are to be back together.  They are pretty good buds.

Out in the front pasture, Pistol’s boys are exploring more of the neighborhood.  They go out with her while she’s eating.

Muffin doesn’t get out much.



She prefers to stay up on the hill and call barn service for some hay.



I’m not sure she’ll ever rejoin the herd, but she seems content.

There’s still time to link up to Friday’s Hunt if you want to join me.  I always keep the week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Today I’m sharing with Scavenger Hunt Sunday (items in parenthesis), Camera Critters, Saturday’s Critters, and Fun Friday Favorites.
