I am so happy for the days to begin lengthening.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt this week.  The items are listed at the top of my sidebar.

A Bird in the Snow

6 Dec

I was accompanied on my walk through the pasture this weekend by a red-bellied woodpecker who seemed to be following me.

I finally obliged it with a photo shoot when we got back to the barnyard.

I’m sharing today with Wild Bird Wednesday and Ruby Tuesday Too.

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

Falling Out of Love

5 Dec

Since the llady llamas came to the farm in October, Llenny has been stalking them.  They don’t really like him, but he hangs around them.  Well, the snow left him an unhappy llama, and he led the way back up to the barn.

They were not up there long before the snow stopped and everyone went out to pasture.

The girls seem quite content out there eating the grass beneath the snow.  Llenny…

Poor guy.  He actually came up to the barn to hang out with the goats this afternoon while Odie and Maybeline were out in pasture.  I think he might be falling out of love with this winter weather.

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.
