Last year Donna and Deann gave me lily bulbs for Mothers Day and I planted them down below the house in a bed and I actually had forgot about them until I looked down there and saw beautiful flowers blooming. They are a very unusual lily and are beautiful.
The goats like to play king of the hill on the big oak tree in the pasture. It's their favorite spot to hang out and they run around on the limbs like they are roads.
It's hay season and summer fields are lush with grass waiting to be mowed and baled into hay for the winter. The goats enjoy their pasture and hanging out in the shade.
The Daisy's and Butterfly weed bloom share a spot in the field by the pond. The Daisy's still dot the field with white nodding heads and are now joined by the orange Butterfly Weed. A lovely garden of bloom with Mother Nature doing all the work.
The flowerbed and garden is filled with baby praying mantis. They are so cute when they stand up and look around. I am thrilled to have them as they eat lots of bugs. This one is checking out one of the lilies.
After a rain the drops of water hang from the tall grass, the leaves on the trees and glisten in the morning sunlight. The fields and woods are filled with mother nature's jewels.
The lilies in the flower bed by the sidewalk are all in bloom. It's a nice welcome when I come home .
I just got back from a mini vacation visiting with J and Patti my brother and sister-in-law. We had a wonderful time at their lake house. We fished, took fun boat rides, swimming, campfires and roasted marshmallows. Thanks to J we had a big fish fry one night. He caught around 10 and my total was 0. I did catch a huge stripped bass but couldn't get it in the boat, it broke the line.
I have been keeping the geese in the large pen since they decided to chase cars and go for walks down the road and around the neighborhood. I let them out for a couple of hours in the late afternoon to go swimming and eat grass. The really enjoy their swim and the straighten every feather.
Deann and Donna's vacation is winding down. We are accomplishing a lot of what we hoped to get done but as always things are taking longer than expected. But it still feels good to finally have time to work on projects we've had to put aside. We spent one whole day cleaning the inside of the Silver Bullet. We cleared out everything. We washed every surface, cabinet, drawer and appliance and ended by vacuuming and cleaning the carpet. It looks really nice!
