It’s been a whirlwind of activity here around the farm this past week, making up for last week when I was down for the count with a really bad cold and flu. I’m still recovering, but feeling much better.
The bees are making good progress having hatched out some new bees this week. I’m not sure what’s going on inside, but things look good on the outside. I just gave them another gallon of sugar syrup. Things must be thriving because I just put a gallon on the hive this past Sunday. I’m planning a full hive inspection this coming Monday as it’s going to be in the 90s today and tomorrow with rain forecast for Saturday and into Sunday.
We are very excited to welcome Sadie Rose to our herd of alpacas. She was born on Tuesday, June 26th at about 12:30pm. She’s a tiny little thing weighing only 15 pounds at birth, but she’s spunky! She’s alert and gaining weight. We’re waiting on Elle now who is due any day!
Next week the new landscaping is going in, weather permitting. It’s been a long time in the planning and I’m excited to see it go in. It will make a welcome change from thistles and whatever else is growing out there now.
I finished my barn quilt a few weeks ago and Brian hung it up for me on the shed. It’s visible from the road so I hope people enjoy it as they drive by.
And some photos of my favorite girl, Bijou . . .
Until next time . . .
