Here’s Hoping for Hay

The weather has been much better lately.  It’s been a little while since we’ve had significant rain, and I think it’s actually dry enough to make hay now.  The tentative plan is to mow this Sunday and bale on Wednesday. Goats in pasture Luckily, the rain has kept the pasture growing, so I’ll have enough to fill my barn.  I’m not sure we’ll have much above that, but at least the animals will get food for the winter.  We’re keeping our fingers, toes, and hooves crossed that it finally gets made. Sharing with Good Fences.

Little Flying Critters

I’m still trying to get caught up from being gone, but I’m pretty sure that will never happen, so I decided to go for a short walk this evening.  It’s hard to take many pictures right now because we still haven’t made hay yet.  I’m hoping that will happen this week.

I did find a couple of cooperative little critters.

Now if I could just get those monarchs to sit still a little longer.

It was fun playing in the golden light.

Tomorrow it’s back to trying to get caught up with the garden, garage, and making hay.  Oh, but it’s supposed to rain too.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

If you know me at all, you know evening is my favorite time of day.  I always get to be home in the evening, even when I’m working off the farm.  It also takes me out to pasture and lets me spend time with my animals.  It also gives that great golden light I love so much.  This is from my walk earlier in the week, before the torrential rains.

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items:  favorite time of day, nature, the sky, hello, and photographer’s choice.  This one was perfect for me, so I’m not even going to tell you which picture I chose for each prompt.  I’ve included the eastern meadowlark from that same walk in pasture for Bird d’Pot.
