Out feeding the animals this morning, still in my pajamas, I couldn't resist the urge to move a few wheelbarrow loads of pine straw.
This is the second, or third, not sure which, big load of pine straw from our neighbors Fred and Ann. It's funny, Fred rakes and rakes and rakes all the pine straw from his yard, gives the straw to us which I then spread in our yard. I offered to give Fred all the leaves that I rake up, but he just laughed. :)
Looking too at the little peach tree, how much it has grown. It will need pruning in February and I'm hoping it will be covered in pretty pink blooms this spring.
and that little brick path leads to the bunny pen, homes of Bun Bun, Fiona, and Penny...
here's Bun Bun with a little piece of cabbage.
and shy Fiona with a piece of hay...
there you are! Penny's picture was a bit fuzzy. Maybe tomorrow I will get a better picture.
This has been another dark cloudy dreary day. It was just beginning to rain at 5:30 when I went out to close the chicken house door.
Sorry, this post was meant for yesterday. That's when I started it, but never finished it. So it was Saturday morning that I spread the pine straw.
Oh, talk about being excited! Poppy and I carried the big wing-back chair, the one Poppy sits in all the time...
The upholsterer wanted the chair at his shop today. That way he can start on it first thing tomorrow. He says it will be finished by Wednesday or Thursday. That's pretty darn quick, don't you think?
The fabric I picked out is a dark brick red with some touches of gold. You know how I love red and gold in the living room.
Better get busy now. Hope to be back here soon and for sure with pictures of the new chair. Gosh, will I even know how to act?
