With it all the color and green that the warm weather and rain brings. We have only been back at the ranch for 2 months yet seems like so much longer.
When we returned the weather was still very cold and continued to get frosts right up until middle of June so I went to work in the greenhouse. Starting seeds and preparing my flower pots that are now on my deck.
Once I could start work in the garden I began moving half my rhubarb and raspberries to a new bed. I am taking a bit of a gardening break this year to work on some of the beds so only planted half the beds this year. I will soon be ripping out the entire strawberry bed as wild variety has taken over and the old variety never did well.
When we arrived home Momma deer was here to greet us along with her twins from last year. She stayed around in the yard till around the 1st of June when I know it was time for her to have a new baby. I haven’t seen her since.
Well it hasn’t been all work and no play. We went on 2 camping trips to our favourite lake. Where the scenes of the lake are always breathtaking.
Often enjoyed dinner while watching the sunset.
I did a bit of hiking and finally took up fishing as well. No I didn’t catch anything. I spent most the 3 days reading how to do my fly fishing lines and practicing casting on land as well as preparing my tackle. I should fish from the canoe, but my back can’t take sitting in it. I am thinking of getting one of those belly boats to float around in and fly fish.
I always enjoy those moments as
I gaze out over the lake.
Well hubby left me for 3 weeks and made a trip to Germany to visit family and friends. Someone has to stay home and take care of the animals so my vacation was spent at home. No cooking or cleaning so yes it was a vacation. I did have all the yard work and lots of other projects to keep me busy. But alone here for most of the 3 weeks has been heaven. I had a group of old school girl friends come for a visit the 1st weekend. What a hoot that weekend was. Some I hadn’t seen more then 2 times in the last 30 something years. Didn’t take long for us all to bond again.
Also kept busy raising a dozen meat chicks for our freezer. They will be ready to butcher in a couple weeks.
The robins have been nesting all over and Wildflower is so happy again to be able to go outside.
The weather has not been so good the last 3 weeks. Many storms would come in and then just dump the rain.
But with the rain and then the sun the signs that
summer has arrived are now here to enjoy.
So work hard and play hard
and have a
Good Morning… Good Afternoon… Good Night…
What ever it is to you.
