It's a lot hard to get pictures of Ginger, now that he's joined the inside clan! I was able to get this one, last night. The other cats had been lured away, leaving Ginger and his new mouse on my very, very hairy bed. He loves that mouse! I didn't realize when I bought it, … Continue reading Ginger: mighty hunter!
The deer are out in full force! We're actually seeing a lot more than usual, for this time of year. Particularly at our main gate. With how dry this winter had been, I suspect they are hunting for water sources. These ones were caught on the trail cam a couple of evenings ago. Can you … Continue reading So many deer!
This deer looks to be having deep thoughts! In reality, she's just chewing some feed. 😀
It was very exciting last night! We spotted our very first luffa seedling! I am not surprised that it is closest to the light we've got in there for its heat! There was just one this morning, but when I turned the tray so the others would get a bit more direct warmth, just before … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: first luffa, and sun room is ready
Ginger has had his first day in the house, and it's been interesting! The first thing he did was claim the cat bed on the bottom of my closet. It's a favorite spot for quite a few cats, but it's now all his! Which seems to work out, since the other cats are far more … Continue reading There’s Ginger spice in the house!
At least I'm hoping this deer is making faces because of the light. Either that, or it discovered one of the "presents" the cats like to leave in the seeds.
A while back, I wrote about two areas we were considering building a permanent, accessible raised bed garden outside the inner yard, and asked for feedback. You can read about that here. While walking with my daughter this evening, it occurred to me, we could start in a very different location. I hadn't considered this … Continue reading Gardening beyond the inner yard: potential location changes, and fence plans
My older daughter just finished a whole bunch of quick commissions, and after sitting at the computer for so many hours, she really needed to get out and walk! So we headed out together, and wandered around beyond the outer yard, cutting through the old hay yard. I just had to share this photo of … Continue reading Situational blindness?
My older daughter and I headed out for a walk, and we decided to go ahead and remove the plastic covering our garlic beds. When looking up how to plant winter garlic, all the resources said to cover the garlic with a heavy layer of mulch. What none of them did was mention when to … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: the garlic beds
Ginger had his trip to the vet to have the sutures removed. My daughter ended up holding him in her arms so the vet could do it, as he did NOT want to get out of the carrier! He didn't want to get out at home, either. 😀 It was not easy to get pictures … Continue reading Ginger update: stitches are out!
