Friday Follow-Up

This week:

-- Our peach and nectarine trees have bloomed; the wild sand plums are in bloom now.

-- Purple henbit and dandelions decorate the front yard, and blue-eyed grass is blooming in the hayfield.

-- We had almost two inches of rain over the weekend. Water and warm sunshine are encouraging the grass to grow.

-- The hens are laying well and we're currently getting 3-4 eggs a day, which is plenty for our family. One day there were 4 brown eggs, and the next day 3 green eggs; since then the nest has been integrated and I've gathered a mix of colors.

-- I've seen robins in the hayfield and watched a pair of Canada geese fly overhead. I love how peaceful it is here.

-- We saw a flock of wild turkeys down the road at the abandoned homestead.

-- One of our outside dogs disappeared a week ago. I wish I knew what happened to him, but then again, maybe I don't want to know. We had an influx of coyotes after the nearby wildfires, and we assume that he was chasing some off and met an untimely end.

Oh my, I MUST plant daffodil bulbs this fall!
These are blooming at another non-occupied homestead
nearby. They are so gorgeous this year.
