The sunshine has been wonderful lately
The days warm, but cooling down nicely in the night
Which is lovely, because the amazing spring flowers are still blooming heavily
Brightly offering sweet scents to the air
And color for the eye
So far this spring has been kind to us
A few days of over the top weather, but nothing to be overly concerned
Having shrunk my yard and therefore my workload
Taking care of the three rather large areas have become nice
Gentle on my back and the reduction in the amount of watering and weeding
So now everything is a pleasure, not a ‘job’
From early morn
Through late evening
I feel ever so grateful.
From my world to your heart.
Spring and Summer are such magical times. They are neither dark and dreary, or so brilliantly colored you forget to see the magic happening right in front of your eyes.
Spring and Summer are somehow a time set aside, a time when spirits roam from daylight until dark, and the old gods walk upon the land in that time of Twilight.
Where all those tiny little creatures perform that mystic ritual of building nests
Of this and that
In secret tiny spaces….waiting and sitting and waiting until the whole world is greeted with the joy of bright little babies.
From my world to your heart,
Theresa over at the Run*A*Round hosts a Good Fences Thursday. Hop over there and see what she has posted and then check out what other cool fences and gates are around the world.
Here is my contribution for this week….
It looks like just and ordinary chain link fence, but if you look closely the posts are made of cement. I liked the appeal and the idea the posts were homemade.
You are all welcome to join in…just hop over to Run*A*Round Ranch and link your fence or gate post each Thursday.
For some reason my internet has been down until right now.
Terry has the first cutting of hay done…
This is the ‘getting old’ field. The rows are not very thick. As I’ve said before this field will be planted to something else (if there is water) next year.
We wait now for the alfalfa to dry down…usually about a week if the weather holds sunny and hot. Sometimes faster if we have wind to go with it.
But if we have rain (fingers crossed this doesn’t happen) we stand a very good chance of the rain ruining the crop. So no rain for AT LEAST TWO MORE WEEKS!
The alfalfa need to morph into hay, then it needs to be baled into bales and hauled into the hay yard to be sold.
This shot of the hummers is a little better…I only cut off two of the little flying jewels, but I did get one looking good.
Last night the jet streams were a delightful pink
I always wonder where they are going—home … away…somewhere for fun…just out of here..going, going and then gone…just the tails left.
Off to work in the yard!
