Little showers yesterday. Dark with clouds. Even a mild breeze. And lots of growth.It is Sunday though.
I don’t have many words left by Sunday.
I have been trying to get a good shot of the pigs in the sunflowers for the chefs but it is easier said than done. If I get in there with the hogs they are right at my feet and from a distance the image is too busy.
Sending a picture of sunflowers without the hogs does not mean much.
Or hogs without the sunflowers.
I will keep trying.
Off for our evening walk. Down the roads.
Boo moved his head as I took this shot but I kind of like it and you know how I feel about focus.
Now that the flat tire on the tractor is fixed I am going to try and dig the duck pond a little deeper, and then I will tow the hay rack in beside their pond for shade. Fun jobs!
I hope you have a lovely day.
WEATHER: a few showers around and maybe a peek of sun later in the day. Still very cool. Lovely.

Those sunflowers seem to have an inner glow in that last image. What a pity we cannot also see a row of cheerful piggy faces, happily chewing on sunflower stalks…
Yes! That would be the shot!
The sunflowers are beautiful. I must go to the farmers market today to get some.
That’s a prize winning photo of Boo – great contrast and composition. The movement in the face gives it an air of mystery.
Yes- I like it too. He is very focused
Love your photos as always! Livestock are not very cooperative when it comes to photo opportunities. It’s ok if you are short of words, Sunday’s are like that!
Sunday’s sure are!
Just love the pic of Tima and Tane! That Tima is just too cute! Will the plonkers head for the abattoir in the fall?
These four big ones are not too far from their full weight. So next month I think. Then the six will carry on until the late fall
Love love love the sunflowers and I am confident that you will get that treasured shot of the piggies in the sunflowers eventually. Thanks for the smiles this morning.
They are ripping through the sunflowers now- I had better be quick
You are as gifted in photography as in words. Your photos are wondrous & beautiful & artistic & witty & just bring us from all over the world right into your fields & down your country roads. I am happy with what you give us whenever you do.
Oh!! Thank you
As so often happens, you give voice to my thoughts… Thank you JM. And thank you for the seed that put them there, C: )
Lovely sturdy pigs and the Boo photo is perfect!
Lovely background to it – that shot
There is one picture with one hog and one sunflower…thats progress..ha! Them thar clouds look mighty mischevious….we got 32 here and its like being in oven… Lots o love bg
Oh goody!! An image with Tane! Tima looks very robust!! ha ha! Happy Sunday to you, C.
Robust is very kind. She is a little rubenesque. I just cannot get the weight off that girl.
Sunflowers do not need hogs!
But hogs love them sunflowers!
I love sunflowers too, which is why I wold not want hogs eating them in my garden. Someday, I must write about what the finches did when I cut some sunflowers and brought them inside.
Yes you should! I never have any luck with sunflowers in a vase . They always drop very sadly
Mine started out fine, but were ravaged and knocked over by a voracious herd of finches that left a mess of sunflower frass, feathers and poop all over the dining room!
Piggies and sunflowers ~~ whoever dreamed of it!!! and then TonTon keeping guard!! Love the evening walk pictures ~ great color, clouds and corn!! And… my Boo Boy!!!
The evening walks here are great lately with it is so cool
It’s -by my standards- bloody cold here this morning, so any kind of sun is welcome. Lovely pics 🌻
You winter is speaking up
Frosts here for the last week ❄
Hope you have got your Woolies on
Those road photos are gorgeous. You’ve got good light now, partly because of those clouds. And coolth? Count thy blessings, woman! We’re waiting for nighttime lows below 80.
I am definitely feeling blessed! You must be so hot! Awful.
Luckily, I’m a wise woman who knows her limits. Two hours on the docks is my limit, and NO time on the docks between 3 and 6. My work will wait — your animals won’t!
Who needs words with pictures like those? I love the Boo picture. And the road stretching toward the gold sunlight under the grey cloud. I feel out of words all the time. I wish I could learn to keep my mouth shut when that is the case, though. Sigh.
That is so funny!! Me too I think
There may not be much pig pasture left to see in the photo but just look at the lovely, healthy gloss of the skin and calmly inquisitive look on her(?) face. Is she not the very picture of happiness?
Speaking of pig pasture, what are those three plants back by the fence post to the right, C?
I don’t know – I will go back and look later today if I get a minute- which photo?
‘Hogs without sunflowers’, fourth from the end: Single glossy-brown pig, looking straight at the camera, with only a single half-eaten corn stalk and three (?) plants back by the fence which they obviously don’t like much (as everything else has gone?; )
Hey Celi … Great photos! Love those sunflowers …
