Day 80 of 365

See what happens when you slow down and take note of what's going on around you.
I spied these Pine Nuts on the ground on the way out to collect the mail.
Years ago someone gave my brother two trees - he gave them to Dad, who gave them to me...
legend had it that they were the sort that produced pine nuts - very true!
And some of them even have viable 'fruits' inside them!
Now to get onto google and find out how to treat these.
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 76 of 365

Coming home from work tonight, I see the silage is still there. Hubby will come up the road with the tractor and get them
as he needs to feed them out. He can cart 3 at a time so it will take a few loads!
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 75 of 365

Our last load of silage was supposed to come today.... it didn't quite get here!
Tipped on a sharp bend about 1 km or so away.
There was quite a queue of logging trucks waiting for us to clear the road.
(No-one was hurt thank goodness).
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 74 of 365

While I was busy taking selfies with a chicken.....
A small dog was trying to untie knots so he could 'say hello'  to the chickens as well...!
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 73 of 365

Brought these two down off the hills where they'd been put to stay out of the flood areas.
They were very happy to be pampered with a bit of special feed.
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Impromptu evening meal with the newlyweds and leftover wedding food :-)

Day 71 of 365

Over 10" (250 mls) of rain over the last few days!
And, inevitably, the farm flooded while we were away. Lots of mess to clean off the fences.
See you tomorrow,

Day 62 of 365

After morning milking.
The cows generally don't like this paddock as the feed isn't great quality; they seemed to enjoy it today!

The young girls are growing fast!
