Farm Scenes

Yesterday was animal rotation day.  When I moved the sheep I decided to get eye level with them to say hi.  Here is the view,

and then Diddley busted in, of course.  There were lots of hugs and pets for the friendly sheep.

Tom’s been working on getting the camper van cleaned up.  We haven’t used it in almost 2 years, and it was a mess.  He had to use a scouring pad to get the roof clean. But now Bluesy the Floosie is looking good!

We were really hoping for a trip to Winthrop Rhythm and Blues this year.  That is not going to happen, but we are hoping for a different trip with our van and family when it would have been.

Here is the view out of our hay loft, looking northeast.  We are still feeding a tiny bit of hay.

And inside the hay loft, I finally got a couple of photos of the barn swallows having returned to their spring/summer home.

It is nice to see them back from their journeys.

P.S.  We have been having some family come by to visit the area’s tulips and the farm.  It is nice since the weather is agreeable.  We can stand outside with our masks on, talk and give farm tours.  It is so nice to see people in person, and I think the tulips are a nice remedy to the pandemic fatigue.

    Neat pictures of the sheep! Diddley must be a character!
    Bluesie is really looking pretty, all spiffed up. Good job, Tom!
    I like the view from your hayloft. I would enjoy just gazing at it.
    The barn swallows are REALLY sweet, aren’t they!

      Thanks Jeanne! Diddley is a character, always needs to be the center of attention. Tom did a great job getting her clean. It’s nice to think those swallows were born here, in the loft. Donna

  2. So wonderful when the birds return!
