Today, we decided we needed a rest--a "relaxing" day today after herding cows and getting them to market yesterday, getting the bull established with the two young ladies; chasing wee chickens to get them re-installed in their new quarters abd separated from the turkeys; and harvesting what produce had ripened overnight.
So we headed for the big pond and this is what we saw:
The pond is up for some repairs this fall and because of this we are letting it drain as much as possible. That means the shoreline is almost like a mud-flat on low tide. And the butterflies are in butterfly heaven!
Speaking of heaven...Cade is a waterdog Border Collie. She's a bit crazy as she swims and paws the water furiously.
And then there were the tracks. There was a virtual raccoon highway running alongside the water's edge with individual tracks galore in the mud.
The cardinal flowers were in bloom.
And at the very end of the trip, I watched the butterflies dance.
