I did not get back from Chicago until early in the evening yesterday so by the time I had finished feeding everyone and come back in for Camera House the day’s light had begun to fail.
This has given us a certain muted calmness to the images of the day.
Life is busy, these last few weeks but in a summery way.
Today I will work on electric fences. Setting up the cow field down by the creek again and dividing two fields. The day before yesterday I mowed the thistles in two big fields – which only seems to spread them really but has to be done to prevent flowering. The cows have finished cleaning up after me and today I shut them off these fields so the grass can grow again.
This cat refused to look elegant for his photo in the beautiful low light.
The moon helped me on with the last of the chores.
I can hear the ducks from my desk. They are so noisy! But not nearly as messy in their night house as I had thought they would be. I found some sand bags to help me raise the sides of the duck pond and now they think there are a new set of monsters in their field – orange ones. Ducks are easy to confuse.
Well, I had better get all my fencing things together and get moving. Ii have to water all the gardens and haul water out to the new trees in the fields too. Busy.
I hope you have a lovely day.
