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.

Morel Mushrooms

A Meadowlark sings me a song
Come have a seat and listen to the  prairie grow


  1. Hi Steve - I'd love to sit and listen to your prairie growing .. and having a chat with you about life - wonderful shots and your blue lace chickens are going to be gorgeous! Splat with the egg - but the boys will always enjoy the lick .. Meadowhawk must be lovely to hear ... Morelles are good aren't they - then those others .. sometime please give us an update on them?! Cheers Hilary

  2. Morels are the best. We looked but didn't find any this year. That hen is so pretty!

  3. What a gorgeous Wyandotte, especially for a hen. We didn't find one morel this year. That one on the station wagon is hilarious.
    Beautiful flowers. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Lovely nature shots! I look forward to seeing your blue chickens.

  5. Love Walter...
    And those chickens are gorgeous!!

  6. Your mushrooms are in full bloom.

  7. I'm eager to see what those chicks look like when they grow up. That's a beautiful chicken in the first photo. Love the dogs and how they relate to each other. The last photo is terrific.

  8. Lots of things going on in your world- love the cute pups! Have a wonderful day!

  9. Re: Your comment on the iris on my blog
    We have some of those iris that smell like grape soda, too, but they didn't bloom well, very spotty this year. And the plain yellow ones (not the ones above) have a nutmeg aroma. You're the first person other than my husband and myself who has ever mentioned the grape soda smell, but you're right. That's exactly how they smell. It's a shame to have them and not enjoy the scents as well as the colors, but I think most folks just look at them.

  10. Beautiful thoughts and photos indeed. Greetings!

  11. Can't wait to see the chicks when they look like the first pic. Very pretty.
    Luigi and Walter are so cute. Looks like they're best buds


Keep it positive and informative,I enjoy hearing from you!
