The swan, across the road, is nesting. This is the male, keeping guard so that no one disturbs her.
Wrangler is losing all of his fur. It looks a bit like rainrot, but I don't think it is - I think he just looses all of his shaggy fur in the spring?
Red used to get rainrot - this is how bad he would get:
We sold the peacocks too. Not my breeding pair, Mr and Mrs Peabody stay, but the babies from last year are all sold, once we catch the one last loose one.
The iris are blooming
I'm trying two apps on my phone this year. The first one is for planning my 4x4 raised beds:
The second is a paid app. I almost never pay for apps. But this one looked really promising, and it is cheap:
I have not spent enough time with either app to know if I really love them yet or not. It's been a busy week! :-)
We're having a skeet shoot here in a few weeks, there is SO much I want to get done/cleaned up around the farm before then! Much like the house cleaning, I know i need a better plan for maintaining this year. I think I need a rotation - on Tuesdays I work on one area, Thursdays another - maybe a front yard/back yard rotation? And I MUST walk through the farm much more regularly. I want to add walks out over the back fields, but daily I need to be in with the horses, chickens, goats.. and at least a walk through of the gardens, so I am more aware of what needs done, rather than avoiding it and living in denial.
