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.

Geese Like Treats Too

17 Jan

When I gave my yard goats pumpkin the other day, I also put one in the barnyard for the geese.

They were happy about that.

When the goats came back up from pasture, Casey was quick to find the leftovers!

I helped little Ava find it too.

I think she liked it!

I really need to give them some more.

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

End of the Garden

20 Nov

With the change in weather to solid freezes at night, I had to get the rest of the stuff out of the garden.  I have one butternut squash and a couple of pie pumpkins.

I decided to bake the pumpkins today.  No sense in rushing, right?  I have a couple of days before Thanksgiving yet.

Oh, by the way, that ugly scar on the pumpkin might be from geese trying to decide if it was a weed or something for me.

I’m glad they decided I could have it.  I do still have a big pumpkin and a couple of acorn squash to bake too.

Snickers is keeping an eye on them for me until I get around to preparing them.

I’ve updated my sidebar to have the items for this coming week’s Friday’s Hunt.  I hope you’ll join me.
