Instead of simply flower photos this week, I thought I’d share a few different things – some scenic photos – along with the requisite photo of Luke enjoying the outdoors, and this week’s “Meet the New Girls (chickens)”.
Well, maybe one flower photo as part of some scenery. Our hydrangea bush is getting a little overgrown, time to do some trimming for sure! This was taken on one of our rare cloudy days recently.
With the temperatures dropping overnight a lot, we’ve had some foggy mornings too! This was taken on my way out to set up the farmstand and let the birds into their run for the morning. After Luke and I have our walk, they are let out to free range (it saves me the trouble of having to wrangle him around the birds when we’re in the yard!).
Luke is always very serious these days when he’s posing for photos, but I did get a little smile out of him when we were taking photos for our Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day post this week.
I’ve started running again, just a couple mornings a week and on this morning the fog had all settled on Goose Pond which is down below us. The photo was taken just a way’s down the street from our house. I’m enjoying the morning runs, I just hope I can keep it up for a change!
I mostly use my iPhone for photos these days, but if I’m writing a review, like our recent Cades & Birch review (by the way, congratulations to Susan C, the winner of our giveaway!), I get out my good camera. When downloading the photos, I had completely forgotten I had taken photos of the Phoebe nest above our patio door. I didn’t really think they’d come out at all, but you can see the little guys! This was late July, their second try at nesting this summer. I like how they have three nests lined up on the top of our awning – it’s like they have a little condo area going!
Last but not least, Meet the New Girls – Kate and Sabrina. These girls are Black Sexlink chickens. I thought at first I couldn’t really tell them apart, but looking at the photos, I realized Kate’s face is redder than Sabrina’s. That could change, but for now I might know who is who!
We hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend, we are expecting mostly nice weather, so no complaints here. Labor Day means summer is unofficially over and autumn is really on it’s way. I think we’re finally getting ready for it!
