Our little piece of God’s earth is trying to keep up with the change in weather from bouts of rain to dry humid heat. The grass is good when we get some rain and the chickens love all the bugs… The birds are still having babies and one mom has taken over our smaller birdhouse… Inside I am trying to keep up with the … Read More Late Summer Update

Snow to spring and back again …

That last eastern snow storm got us  Monday night into Tuesday. Since we knew it was coming our way we did prep work around our place. Secured the chickens and got a couple flock blocks set up plus extra water, covered up the tractors, moved the generator, and filled up the bird feeders as we like to provide a spot for the birds in … Read More Snow to spring and back again …

Birds in the Snow

Our birds have been enjoying our bird feeders that hubby has been trying to keep full. They have been on the feeders and under them where they had dropped some of the seeds. We have had different kinds of birds, but mostly these small little birds and robins. They also have been under some of the trees I think eating berries and things that … Read More Birds in the Snow

Birdies

We had some visitors today… some cute birdies 🙂We didn’t have much time after work to sit and watch them as we had a lot to do, but I took a few minutes to see what they were up to. They were sharing the seed that was spilled on the ground. The bigger bird seemed to almost help the little ones find the bigger … Read More Birdies

In The Shadows…

Do you see our new woodpecker? I was playing with the new settings on my camera and got this photos. I thought it was neat how the bird looks like a part of the branch and blends in to the black of the branches. It reminds me of a sermon I heard on people talents and how some people are good at being in the forefront … Read More In The Shadows…

Woody the Woodpecker

So yesterday I attempted to post a photo of a woodpecker I had in the front yard and it was only somewhat successful. So here I will try again… I love this little guy (girl?) and the bright red-head. He (she?) is a frequent visitor over the last few days and I have enjoyed this woodpeckers interaction with our other birds. I have been looking out on … Read More Woody the Woodpecker

Chicken coop, dogs, and life…

Today was the first nice day I had to be outside and work. The chicken house got a cleaning and I finished the new boxes for “the girls” (my Dad was helpful in this process as he had a lot of good ideas). “The Girls” ran around like crazy enjoying the bugs and other goodies that they could get now that the rain had … Read More Chicken coop, dogs, and life…
