Welcome to Random Foto Friday where I share moments from around the farm this week. It’s been an exciting week with warm, sunny weather over last weekend and into the earlier part of this week. Brian and I got a cement pad laid for our electrician to come in and move the A/C unit and generator so that our landscaper can come in and do her magic. I’m really looking forward to putting a pretty face on this wonky old farmhouse.
Not a beautiful picture . . . but it’s progress!
We also had visitors from the Prairie View Elementary school. It was a rainy, but wonderful day!
And leaves on the trees magically appeared on Wednesday morning! I swear one minute they weren’t there and the next they were! It was truly magical!
These two precious Mourning Doves have made the farm their home. I hope they stay around. Did you know, at bird feeders, Mourning Doves are attracted to one of the largest ranges of seed types of any North American bird, with a preference for corn, millet, safflower, and sunflower seeds? I just filled the feeders yesterday, so I hope they keep their tummies full. I’m thinking I need to attach my hopper/house feeder to the top of one of the poles on the fence as the Mourning Doves seem to prefer a flat surface (such as the ground) for nibbling. Of course, now that I really think about it, they’re probably too large for the tube feeders I have out, so this is probably a good idea.
And of course, what duck doesn’t like a big puddle of water?
I leave you with a sleeping piggy in a blanket . . . sounds like a good idea on this chilly, rainy morning.
I hope you enjoyed these moments from around the farm.
Until next time . . .
