This and That

The Nugget

The nugget is getting big.  I’m still going to insist that the chick has to be a girl (not that I really have a clue yet).  I think it’s safe to say that, even though mama is a Phoenix hen, the egg donor was a barred rock.

The phoenix chickens and the peacocks like to roost in the rafters at night.

I don’t know how mama got her little nugget up there.

But she managed to get it down in the morning too.  I’m impressed.

The Garage.

When I was at work on Friday, another load of dirt got hauled in and added to the front of the garage.  I think I will actually be able to get the Ranger in and out without having to use the all-wheel drive once the gravel gets spread over there.  I can hardly wait until it’s done!

The Rain.

It might be a while until they can do more work because we had another surprise rain Sunday morning and it rained on Monday too.  The mallow is really looking happy with the rain though.

The Calf.

The calf nursing is Purple 11’s baby that was born here.  He’s already getting big!

This and That Around the Farm

6 Jul

Just some scenes from around the farm.  Birdsfoot trefoil growing in the pasture.

Estarr, cooling her heels in the water tub.

We had visitors!  Maybeline is an awesome guest greeter.

My mallow.  I was glad to see I had any after two years of yard goats.

Vanna is adorable!

It’s a miniature orange tree!

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

There is an old saying about stopping to smell the roses. I think it’s true of all flowers.

It’s good to enjoy their scent.

It’s good to enjoy their beauty.

We do not have to eat them.  Please, Sky, do not eat my flowers!

Or my house plants.  You are not a vegetarian.
