A beautiful June 26th 2015
We finally had a drier year. The water is going down, leaving behind a lot of dead trees and debris.
It’s getting brown and dreary on the farm again. Winter is Coming. It’s supposed to be mild this year, which is great. But it’s still my least favorite season. I found some photos that I hadn’t shared the other day. I was out for a walk and found a duck nest. I didn’t go back after this to see them as I didn’t want to leave a scent trail for my dogs & cats to follow later. I hope that most of the baby ducks made it and are traveling safely south now.
The first photo is the tree that the nest is beside. You can’t even tell that there would be a nest there! When you’re walking by a slough, even 30′ away, keep an eye on the ground for nests. I love the colour of duck eggs. A beautiful green-gray.
I hope these photos let you remember a hot sunny day, especially now when the cold wind is blowing and the first snow flakes are falling.
