What Do You Want?

10 Jun

I am leaving to go on vacation for two weeks at the end of June.  You may have heard about this already.  My mom and I are going on a genealogy road trip.  I am at the point of trying to figure out what to do with the blog while I’m gone.

One option is to just preschedule posts with a few pictures from the farm–goats, llamas, wild birds, cats, and such.

Perdita will be getting a new horn apparatus before we leave.

Another option would be to do those scheduled posts but throw in some vacation things when I get time.  It would most likely be nature, history, and cemeteries.

Finally, I could just not do anything. That is tempting, but after so long of posting every day that would be weird.

So, if you read regularly, feel free to let me know which option you would prefer by filling out the form below.

More Birds

I am really enjoying all of the wild birds this spring.  I have already overloaded you with bird pictures, but I just can’t stop taking more pictures.  So…

I need to wash my windows, but I couldn’t resist sharing him with his big maple seed.

I can’t believe all the Baltimore orioles I’ve had.

The northern flicker landed in the tree right by me and then took off again.

There was a pair of Eastern kingbirds.

The red-bellied woodpecker was a long ways off, but I just love them.

I do love my domestic birds too.  Mr. Peacock is still dancing for everyone, and they still don’t appreciate him.

The girls are doing okay in the smaller greenhouse, but I really need to start getting their building cleaned out and the pen repaired.

As much as she enjoys a clean bath, I don’t know why she keeps throwing all the junk in her pool.

I am ready to be done teaching for the summer.

Looking Like Summer

20 May

I love this time of year.  Everything is turning green and there’s wildlife to photograph and happy goats and llamas on pasture.

Sorry to overload with this last subject, but I’ve never seen such an agreeable snake before.

Here’s to another great weekend!
