Day 344: Lawn Mower

image

My husband is a super pro–this is a picture of him mowing the lawn. Or, the only way I could get him to pose with the cherry tree.
How can he mow the lawn without starting an engine? Simple. We have goats.

I think we need 2-4 more goats to do a better job. They didn’t quite finish the yard. I have been feeding them the sweet blossoms from trees so they made a beeline for low hanging branches before even looking at the grass.

Finally, they looked to the ground and were excitedly running around the yard enjoying the wide variety of grasses, weeds and wildflowers.
They love dandelions and wild onion tops apparently.

After this rain clears and things warm up again we will have another walkabout with Ziva and Denka. They enjoyed the fenceless approach, but wandered to close to the road for comfort.

Day 178: Miniature Spookies

This is my dollar store purchase. It was a ton of work to put this little guy together but I suppose you get what you pay for when you only pay a dollar.

I got set of six ghosts but I was shorted a twist tie so I couldn’t complete the last–meager excuse I know.

My sweet neighbor is an older gentleman not accustomed to change and he swerved nearly off the road when he first saw my ghosts set up by the mailbox. This was in broad daylight.

I suppose it has the desired effect. Just looking adorable.
We had a terribly windy day recently but my little ghosties weren’t the least bit bothered.
