Of animals and flowers



Our neighbors are in Nicarauga for a week on a mission trip. They asked Danny to feed their goats, chickens, geese and fish while they are gone. Yesterday, I decided to go with him.

The goats saw us coming and were waiting in anticipation for their feeding!


But Danny went to take care of the chickens first.


He brings home 3-4 eggs every day, which is quite nice! I love fresh eggs!!

The chickens watch and wait, till he is out of the pen, then.....


....Let's Eat!!


The goats were waiting by the gate till we got back over to their pen. :)


They are pretty goats!


As much as they like to keep a distance from you, once the food shows up, they are all over it! :)


Adding some new hay....it smelled so good! :)


The littler goats came over and ate here. I think the bullying of the big ones was too much! 


 Our crepe myrtles are just FULL of flowers. I think all the rain we had a few weeks ago must have been what they needed!!


The branches are just weighted down.


We put our pool up in a different spot this year because of having dogs in the back yard.
But, this is what you go out to every day! Thankfully, a few sweeps of the mesh skimmer cleans them right out! Kind of makes you feel like you are swimming with rose petals all around you! ;) Hahaa!


They add so much color to the outdoors! :)




**Thanks to my neighbor for loaning me his camera for a few days. I used it to photograph some items I wanted to list on Ebay, and then before I took it back to him yesterday, I took the opportunity for a few more snapshots... :) I'm praying that some day sooner than later I can figure out how to get a new camera! :)

  1. Oh my! 16" of rain! We didn't get a drop from Debby, mostly clouds and breezes. Some rain would be welcome. Your crepe mrytles are beautiful. Ours are just starting to bloom. I love them.

    1. No, that was 1.6, not 16! ;)

    2. I see, it's hard to see that period in between the one and six. Guess I should have said 1 and 6/10's! :)
