Week's End



After the storm came through, the sky was the prettiest blue.
Stark naked trees on one side of the field and
a flowering redbud and fruitless pear on the other.  Like Spring just up
 and decided to Kick Winter out the door.
Move along, Old Man...move along.








5 little piglets born Sunday- aren't they cute?  I like the spotted one..I'm betting it will win a ribbon or two.



Mr Hawk is back.  Every year he shows up when the martin scouts start flying in.
Yeah, I'm looking at you, too.  Guess that's the hawk-eye, but I'm giving it the stink-eye.


Week's Favorite

Gauge was checking me out. I guess I passed the test, and he let me visit the new piglets.

  20. Love those piglets. And gauge, and the hawk. I loved it all.
    And how I wish our summer would move out. She has outstayed her welcome (which was never as hot as she is).
