Day 344: Lawn Mower

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 341: Pond

image

I had a had a half day with one of my girlfriends yesterday. We had a cocktail and lunch at a Mexican restaurant and she treated me to a pedicure with shellac on the toes (more on that later).

After running around town we came to the farm so she could practice the manual settings on her fancy camera. What we learned, nature is not very convenient.

Dragonflies and birds are a tease, turtles are too smart to surface near us, and goats are buck wild at best. Still, she got some great shots and she is learning her camera better and better.

Me and my android phone took wide pictures of the pond, photos of photographer and soaked as much sun and warmth in as possible.
I hope today is just as beautiful as yesterday.
