The Maple leaf tree is my favourite tree, I love following it through the seasons as it changes leaf colours.
I might have to stop feeding the birds as they got to our grapes this year before I did and left us none.
Brent spent his last week of annual leave splitting firewood. Once again we have plenty of wood to keep us warm for winter. Can you see Brent's hand as a measure of how big the pile is? My hand wouldn't even reach on tiptoe. The woodshed is full plus there is another stack.
My job is to collect the pine cones up.
The walnut tree is giving a bumper crop this year.
Crab apples - nearly time for jam making.
My vege garden is coming to the end of the summer growing. I'm still getting cherry tomatoes and the chillies are nearly ready. It is nearly weeded ready for the winter garden to go in.
I blink and the courgettes turn into marrows. The sheep like eating marrows so they don't go to waste
Golden rod in the herb garden is just starting to flower
The first nerine to bloom
Rodger ram (rear) has been a busy boy and lots of romancing has been going on so we should have lambs once again in August.
Abbey has been teaching me Instagram - it's rather fun but a new world learning about hashtags # and ats @. One follows on Instagram and are not friends. A very different language... but I'm slowly learning to use my phone (finally) and play on Instagram.
Have a good week. I've pine cones galore to pick up and a horrible assignment to redo. Yes my first assignment in two years of my naturopathy degree was a not achieved. I was gutted, That is what happens when you set yourself high standards. So this week it is back to the drawing board rewriting a 2000 plus word essay on how urine is formed.
