A Chill Seeps Onto the Farm Each and Every Night Now, Tuesday, September 8, 2020

The morning air is cool almost cold now.

Although, we have been warming up into the 100’s (again) in the afternoons.

I’ve been out-and-about taking photos of the wildlife (if I can find them)

Leaving the little Beeglie at home resting.

The smoke is back —thick (see above) and miserable

So without further ado

I will give you my wee collection

Of the critters

Who, like us, are harvesting and



For winter

And yes

I do take out treats to feed some of them

But, of course

I don’t feed all of them

The little hummers are leaving us now.

I’m down from 12 feeders to two.

Well, there you have it.

A small collection of fun creatures who share the farm with us.


Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. What a wonderful collection of animals! Love especially the funny picture of the squirrel (chipmunk?) with it´s tail raised. I´m sure they appreciate their little treats.


  2. I am soooo sorry to hear about Boomer! I do hope all will be well I am afraid I am about to start spouting the pious platitudes that we all reach for when under this kind of stress. We have been struggling with the smoke from fires S. of San Francisco, (under evacuation warning once), and our kitty had pneumonia. Dishwasher died. Etc. Etc. Etc. BLM and Antifa targeted our little town 4 times but they didn’t amount to much–just kept us anxiety ridden. (You may want to remove that). Through it all I looked forward to your blogs. They were very strengthening and comforting. Now you are in pain.. Beside prayers and hugs, what can I do. I think I still have your private email from our talk about the Betsy-Tacy Society. I think you have my email. You may still have my phone number. Either way, I would like to contact you.

    All my prayers
