It’s Starting to Look Like Fall

5 Oct

This time of year, I really wish I had trees whose leaves turned brilliant colors.  Alas, mine generally just fade into brown.

Same tree a few days later (and Tony has moved between these two images) an a lot more brown.

Luckily, I found some brightly colored leaves at my dad’s house!

I still have some splashes of color on my farm.  The flicker provides some.

The mallow is still going strong.  It doesn’t mind a cold, fall rain.  If we don’t get a hard freeze, it will keep blooming until Thanksgiving.

My corn is turning, but there’s still lots of bright green in the buffer strip.

I even managed to get a mini pumpkin from my garden!

Of course, Sky is my assistant photographer.  Boy, is he a great help!

I love this time of year.


What Is That Smell?

1 Oct

Skunk.  Ew.  Who smells like a skunk?



If you’re going to protect the herd from a skunk, I’d really prefer you didn’t get yourself sprayed.

That scent does not come out of thick llama wool.

Oh, No You Didn’t

I spend my time trying to make sure Aurora gets to have extra food to help her gain weight.


I’ve tried to keep the mosquitoes off of her.

What does she do to repay me?  Look at those ears…

I asked for a kiss, and she leaned in like she usually does, and then she spit.  Yep.  First time I’ve had one of my llamas spit at me.  Seriously??????

It was even a spit and run.  Brat.
