Life on the farm continues...
I regularly take the dogs along the servitude every morning at 5am.
During the day, I'd been up and down the hill several times to supervise the planting and staking of the latest consignment of pecan nut trees.
I always have my camera (and dogs) and captured some beautiful wildflowers along the way.
The first thistle I've seen on the mountain
Pin-tailed Whydah feeding on the ground
My first sighting of a Cape Longclaw
It was quite elusive and kept going further into the maize fields
On Thursday, during the day, the dogs and I walked along the servitude to the bottom boundary gate for the second time. I'd unlocked the padlock early that morning for the delivery vehicle which brings our weekly fruit, vegetables and meat supplies. However, due to a delay the company notified me that they'd be delivering on Friday.
|Here we are, the second time that day, locking the gate! This is very good exercise for me and of course, the dogs LOVE it!|
As I crested the little hill on the way back home, I had a full view of a farm machine planting seeds in the field next door
We all waved to each other - glad to see another human on the hill!
I'm linking my post to Saturday Critters with Eileen here
HAPPY SATURDAY TO YOU ALL!
