A Perfect Day–Tuesday, May 12, 2015

3Yesterday was just a perfect day!  The renters are moved in and seem very excited about everything.  We stopped by to welcome them, there were huge smiles all around!

BBI got my house dusted and vacuumed, and the floors swept!  You don’t know what a huge thing that was.  I was keeping everything cleaned and pick-up, I just have not had time to do a good job of dusting…YAY!



Aren’t these little orange banded furry bumble bees just the cutest things.

Then I got the lawn mowed, the hedge trimmed, and all but one flower bed weeded.  I even got some of my house started plants in the ground.  I am doing a happy, happy dance, that is for certain and for sure. Today I should finish all that up and then be in maintenance mode for the rest of the summer.  (That’s the plan anyway. 🙂 )

There is such joy in finally being caught up!


The corn is looking ‘okay’ in the ground, now that rain and cold temperatures are (hopefully) in the future sometime, and the sun is shinning, The sun and warmer temperature should help the soil to warm up.  Then the corn SHOULD start to sprout and send up little green leaves.  There will be another cheer of great joy as soon as we see the corn rowing out!

Thank you each and everyone of you, for stopping by and for leaving your comments. I am trying very much to answer all my comments in the comment section so everyone will have the knowledge of questions and the answers.  I find that fun things are occurring in the comment section, each of you are getting to know each other.  How nice is that!?

Off now to work on that last bed and to finish putting the Cannas in the ground. Once that is done I can stand back and say….good!

Your friend on a Western Colorado Farm,

  1. I’m glad there is hope of getting caught up. I’m SO far behind, and going back to my daughter’s next week. Glad you have renters moved in. We should be getting new neighbors before too long.


  2. It’s a bee kind of day today. This morning, I bought a shirt with bees embroidered on it. When I came out to the parking lot, there was a yellow VW bug parked next to me. It had a vanity plate that read, “YLO JKT.” And now your post. Bees everywhere!


  3. Man, Linda. You’ve got quite the photographer’s eye. Awesome photos; especially the last one.

    I love the bee photos too. They always remind me of playing marbles with my big “bumblebee stinger.” 🙂


  4. lovely reading your happy dance… reminded me of bees doing their round dance to help the others calculate how far away the honey source is.. don’t worry about replying to this…we know we are in touch XXX


  5. Love the picture of the the orange-banded bumblebee. Here we have only the black and yellow ones. In our valley (Scott Valley) about this time of the year in different locations 20 hives or more appear. Alfalfa fields and now more and more sunflower fields. The ranchers here sell them for sunflower oil and it gets shipped to Europe. One of the things I love about corn is when it is tassling and the honeybees bees are working. Love the hum. With all your corn the fields must be real busy. Also enjoying your readers comments.
