A little visit




My goodness, I had forgotten just how miserable a cold can make you feel. It's awful! It has turned into a constant croupy, aggravating, driving me crazy cough, and has definitely affected my brain...why, I worked on a post for this blog off and on all day yesterday and never did come up with anything worth reading...not that I ever do!

We are still into rainy days, but the weatherman says if we can tolerate the rain through Sunday...well, we are in for a pleasant surprise come Monday; sunshine, low 70's, low humidity...very pleasant.

Scruffy duck left her nest in the old doghouse and went back to the safety of the pond. Things around the chicken pen are settled and quiet again. Hopefully, no more snakes stop by any time soon! Oh, someone asked what kind of snakes these are. They are actually chicken snakes. Black chicken snakes. We always called them black snakes. They actually do good for farmers by eating rats but they also eat birds, baby bunnies...anything they can swallow!! darn it!!

So, for now, the cutest little couple on the teeny tiny farm just happens to be Fiona and Bun Bun. I have been sharing the big patch of red clover in the teeny tiny garden with them...




Some days Bun Bun and Fiona are together in the pen, but most days the little fence is between them. Fiona is a climber and has actually climbed on top of Bun Bun's cage and knocked the roof off. No sign of baby bunnies yet!

Oops! someone forgot and left the pink wheelbarrow parked in front of a rose bush!  



Yeah right! Somebody likes to brag about having a pink wheelbarrow. Seriously, I finally broke down and got the wheelbarrow dirty by using it. It's just been so darn clean and pink I couldn't bear to dirty it up. 

Okay, a very boring post going on here. It's the cold, I'm telling you. Bet you wonder about that precious little Rosie goat...well, I've simply got to get out there and take pictures of her. She is still adorable! It has been so wet and messy here. There will be a little Rosie post soon. 

and...the long legged tower! I'm still fixing and adding to...dragging stuff from the woods and every corner of the yard...check back for another update, if you please. Thank you!

Love,
Henny

  4. Having a cold is no fun, and let's hope yours will be over soon. The coughing wears you out! Your bunnies are just so cute, if they have little ones, it will be interesting to see their colors and type of fur! The snake episodes are sure creepy, and I hope they stay away. Here's to a sunny week coming your way!

  5. I need Eli photos. It's amazing how much rain has fallen across most of the United States this year. Love the pink wheelbarrow. My husband once gave me a pink "her" tool kit to keep at my office.

  6. I have serious wheelbarrow envy, and rabbit envy. I look forward to seeing what you have been up to with the tower. There are a few summer colds going round, my fingers are crossed that they sail right past me.

  7. Bun Bun and Fiona appear to be having a very serious meeting there.
    If they produce baby bunnies it would be fun to see what they look like - short hair grays? fuzzy black and white? duplicates of dad or mom?

  11. Summer colds are the worst, I hope you feel better soon Henny.
    Those little bunnies are the cutest, I raised rabbits when I was growing up, and miss their sweetness.
    Your pink wheelbarrow surely brightens up a rainy day :)

  15. Such a cute pic of Fiona and BunBun sharing that clover. I remember when we had rabbits I would collect all sorts of yummy stuff for them while we went walking. Kind of embarrassed my DH.
    I do hope you get over this cold soon. It's no fun feeling yucky.

  17. Always good to see what's going on down on the teeny tiny farm. Hope you get well soon, and the black snakes stay away!

  18. Well the snakes are appropriately named,..I guess...too bad! A summer cold just seems unfair and so wrong! Hope you kick your's to the curb pretty quickly.

  25. I love your bunnies! I used to have angora rabbits many years ago and I will always have a soft spot in my heart for bunnies.

    So sorry about your poor duck. I haven't seen my broody duck today so I'm a bit worried about her. Darn snakes.
