Although, the heat simmers across the land, often times the night sky is cloudy
But, delightfully, the setting moon’s sky is clear
Then quickly sinking as the glowing sun wakes up the day.
From my world to your heart,
Since the duck was white, everyone decided she needed to be named something from the movie Frozen. So, Elsa, she became.
I rigged up a wee pond, a pallet fence, gave her all the food and water she wanted and we all settled into watching Elsa enjoy her new life with us.
Then checking my FB messages I found out, that Elsa had a home. About a mile from here, way up the canal with two really big headgates in the canal. She lived with 8 other ducks, 6 big dogs, two little dogs, several horses, a sheep and two tiny tots.
So Terry and I and our youngest granddaughter loaded up Elsa and took her back home.
When we drove into the yard, Elsa started getting very interested, even excited, she knew she had come home!
Well! A perfect ending to a rather eventful experience for a really nice duck….we named Elsa!
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
We have a HUGE break in the triple digit weather…
This moisture is in here until tomorrow then we slowly start the climb back into the heat. Until then…ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Your friend on a Western Colorado Farm,
I’m a tad late today as we had to do some stuff before it got too hot to breathe. We had several weed trees (Chinese Elm) that had taken root in my tiny orchard and sprouted to enormous proportions–some dead branches in the ancient (95 years old lilac tree) and some low hanging and dangerous limbs (Rio Grande Cottonwood) and a nasty branch (Colorado Blue Spruce) which kept scraping my neck as I mowed the lawn which all needed Terry’s expertise with the chain saw.
Awhile back I asked if anyone had cool rainbows or other really neat photos that they would love to share with me and with the readers of my blog. If they would send them to me I would put them on my blog and give the appropriate credit for the photo gift.
Leenie from Side Trips sent me two photos of Fog Bows. I have never seen nor heard of a Fog Bow so this was a real treat!
The Side Trips folks stopped by not long ago on their way from Telluride to Grand Junction, Colorado. How cool was that!
Well, off now to get the lawn mowed, the edges trimmed and the hedge clipped. I need to fertilize some of my lagging plants so I best get on the move. The day is heating up…which I LOVE!
Your western Colorado Farm Friend,
