On The Farm

New chicks acquired, it will be fun to see blue ones running around like the first picture.

And it has been Morel Mushroom season. When one goes out they see all species of mushrooms and fungi. You can always hope to find that allusive big guy. Morels are real good to eat, but a challenge to find. I served some the other evening and commented that it was two hours before I found any. They hide real easy, or can be just a few steps away from where you are.
 So, you sat that egg inside the mud room. Coming in I sat down to take off my muddy boots, forgetting that egg was there. Walter came in and cleaned up for  me, I barely had to wipe up anything.
Luigi and Walter, resident herdsmen and egg eaters. A Maremma and Border Collie, Luigi is lots bigger, but Walter still runs the show.

Come have a seat and listen to the  prairie grow

Springing Around

Daffodils are always a sign of happiness for me.
Do you see their always present smile?

The start or the end of the day is always precious to me.
I walked past this from a number of different ways to express the beauty of these blooms.

Tree snail shell
A precious piece I see 
Treasures to me.
Have you ever candied these violet blossoms for May Baskets?

I Picked These For You

Baby Cowbird

The three eagle babies are getting big. Both parents are busy changing shifts and getting them fed. The  other day they were cleaning out the nest and arranging new fill to keep everyone comfortable. 
What a delight to have them close and be able to watch their lives progress.
