Friday Follow-Up


This week:

-- Everyone has been talking about the snakes this year, that the flooding has driven them out of their usual territory. I hadn't seen any until this past week: 3 big black rat snakes. I know that many people just relocate this kind of snake, but I killed them. Once a snake finds eggs, it comes back.

We've had another week of hot, dry weather, such a contrast to the month of May that was cool and very wet. I worked in the garden, augmented the pigs' shade, mowed the grass again, and planted the rose bushes hubby gave me for Mothers Day.

Our neighbor's cows have continued to visit every couple of days, and he stopped by one evening while I was outside. He said the flooding pushed them out of the bottom pasture, and now that it's dried out he'll round them up and put them back where they belong.



-- This week's posts were Clearing Brush with Goat Power and a repost, Drying Your Homegrown Herbs. Thank you for grace as I prepare to be inundated by family in a few weeks.



-- I enjoyed this post at The Masters of Horticulture that features a mosquito hat. I want one!

Have a blessed week!
