Odds and Ends

5 May

I took advantage of beautiful weather on Friday evening and Saturday to take lots of pictures for the blog. Nice weather has been hard to come by this spring.

Anubis and Pluto

We had a freeze warning last week, so I checked on the fruit trees.  I’m not sure I’ll have many plums.

The cherries look more promising.

The bleeding hearts looked a bit droopy the morning of the freeze, but they have recovered nicely.

I’m not sure Sky is really sniffing the violets, but I’m going to pretend that’s what he’s so interested in.

The summer birds are coming back!

Eastern Kingbird

I enjoy hearing them sing.

The shagbark hickory buds are opening.

I will admit I was a bit surprised to see a raccoon out in the middle of the afternoon.

I was relieved when I yelled to ask what he was doing and he ran away from me instead of towards me with foam coming out of his mouth.

Nugget and the girls are also enjoying the weather.  They like to come out and scratch in the dirt.

The goats like the nice weather too.  John is doing well, even though I weaned him.

Blaze is looking much better than she was earlier in the spring.  Pasture has helped her put her weight back on.

Aurora is enjoying being back with the other girls and the bigger pasture.

I have to say, I’m grateful for a couple of nice days because this coming week looks like it’s going to be raining most of the time.

Bob might be spending a lot of time napping in the barn to stay dry this week.

It’s That Season

24 Apr

“What season is that?” you might ask.  I’ll tell you.  It’s allergy season.

As beautiful as all these trees are, I will be happy when they are done blooming and my headaches go away.

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

My Garden Grows

19 Jul

I have to tell you, my little garden is doing well.  It’s taken some work to keep it wet enough.  Those annual, fruit-bearing plants take a lot out of the soil.  In pots, they need watered a lot.

It’s paying off though.  I’ll have fresh zucchini and tomatoes before long!
