Another Friday Photodump

2 Dec

I can’t believe we’re already in December.

Mr. Peacock seems to have shaken his cold (thankfully)

Popcorn. The cattle tank is still working (and so is the hydrant with the warmer weather).

My nephew planting rye–cover crops is the newest effort we’re making to try and help the Earth.

Bubbles

Miss Goose

Heidi likes going in for sweet feed

Maisie

And I couldn’t pick just one, so you get a bunch of the little downy woodpecker who really didn’t mind being photographed.

Here’s to a great weekend!

Is It Fall?

6 Sep

September 1st is meteorological fall and Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer, but we have still been warm.  It feels like summer.

But if I look closely, I can see a hint of fall in my corn.

The llamas are growing their fleece.

Maybeline

I already mentioned that the peacock lost his tail.  He’ll spend all fall and winter growing it back out to look beautiful for the chickens in the spring.

The chickens still won’t care.

It’s clearly sunset on summer even if it isn’t real fall yet.

But it makes me look forward to real fall.

Birds and Things

30 May

More birds from pasture.

Another Baltimore Oriole

A dickcissel!

My first sighting of the year, and he was quite cooperative.

A hawk flying over

The barn swallows are back!

Mr Peacock in his full glory dancing for the hen who could not care less.

He’ll be happy when we get back to the bigger building and pen.

Things…

My handsome Tiger

Maybeline

Aurora

She’s pretty from every angle

Sky’s summer resting spot

Rocky–he’s being good for now.

Hope you have had a great Memorial Day Weekend.  Blessings to those who serve and their families.
