Next to Gma Krueger's Sour cream rolls...
We made the trip this weekend to see the grandchildren and had a great visit. so the ritual cookie stop on the way home was mandatory.
I'm REALLY missing my sheep and spring lambs... It's not only that I loved them....they loved me... It was so delightful to walk out and be welcomed with nuzzles and nudges of affection... But I'm having to settle for new baby chicks... They were out of the breed I wanted (Australorps) so I got these black sex links which are noted as great layers... I think they're a very handsome chicken as well..
Morris keeps licking his chops when he looks at them... I think he views them as wiggly chocolate bonbons... so we keep the laundry room door shut tight.
I'll close on a bit about another feathered friend... I kept seeing a red-shafted flicker woodpecker flying to and from the far side of the pump house and found this 4" hole. They must be nesting inside on the pressure tank as they keep flying in and out.. I haven't gone in for fear of disturbing them as they are one of my garden favorites... hopefully there will be no problem with the pressure tank nor the well until they have fledged... never a dull day on the farm.... I didn't even mention the golden eagles which flew over or the 5 ticks I found on my body after pruning overgrowth all morning.
