Speaking of trees, I still haven't bought the rope needed to build the tree swing. Other jobs keep coming up during the day and time simply runs out!!! While in town buying hay for the goats and scratch for the chickens this morning, I bought a pack of 9 collard plants, drove home, dug a row in the garden, and put the collards in the ground. Now to get the collards to grow! I'm having a hard time finding kale and turnip plants.
Do you love old country roads? I do! That's our driveways on the right...
Do you love old well buckets? I do! Jackie gave this one to us when we moved here in 1989.
I have talked about Jackie in previous posts. Jackie, my younger brother, by fourteen months, died much too soon. He was only 49 years old when he suffered a massive heart attack. Jackie was a free hearted, kind, handsome man, who loved animals, especially horses. I once had a picture of him in his Army uniform that I would love to show you. Maybe I can get a copy from someone in the family. If so, I will talk more about Jackie another time. You may remember from an earlier post that Jackie was known as Roy Rogers around our block in Robbins, growing up. "I was Dale Evans, by the way!" :)
Do you love the Golden Rods that bloom this time of the year? I surely do. Seems to be something about an old dirt, country road that attracts Golden Rods. I love to put a big vase of these flowers on the front porch in early fall...
Plenty of grasshoppers here for the guineas.
Thank you for stopping by. Hope you all are having a good Labor Day. Poppy is working, but we plan to grill a steak later on...a rarity around here!!! :)
