A Beautiful Morning

I Plan on doing a farm update soon but since I have a busy day ahead I’ll just share some photo’s from this morning at the farm.

A Busy Momma

In the field to the east of us I spotted this momma deer with her young – TRIPLETS! It’s quite common for us to see momma’s with twins and we have seen triplets in the past but they are far less common.

The sky was just gorgeous as the sun came up this morning.

I wish you all a beautiful day!

    1. I think some of the colors we have been seeing in the sky have been a result of smoke from the western wildfires making it’s way here. We’re thankful too that the tornado didn’t stay on the ground long and thankfully where it did touch down there was only property damage. No one was injured.

  1. I want to hum “Morning Has Broken” while seeing this post Ruth. The Momma deer with her fawns is a sweet photo to see before I head to bed after another Nervous Nellie evening with the rain. I know you appreciate rain, but I had five bouts of torrential downpours … if you got that too, I hope your crops are still salvagable.

    1. A fitting song indeed. πŸ™‚ We are less appreciative of the rain than we were a month ago. We had hoped to replant some things that didn’t make it but the ground has not dried out enough to do so. 😦 We had some nervous moments last night too. Armada, where the tornado touched down, is less than 15 miles to the west of us as the crow (tornado) flies. Had the tornado held together or strengthened we were, marginally, in it’s path. We did get torrential rains from the storm but the threat of tornado had diminished by the time the storm reached us.

      1. A “like” that you escaped the tornado’s path, but can’t do a dislike for the sopping rain which has decimated your crops. I didn’t realize you were that close to Armada or I’d have been worrying about you. I just heard Mark Hackel on WWJ and he said Armada was hit the hardest of the four tornadoes … others not confirmed yet, but he believes Armada definitely a tornado. There were four houses with severe damage and large, established trees uprooted. We have rain the forecast a couple of times early in the week … guessing you will not plant again this year then? That’s a shame. I feel very blessed because by the time the extreme severe weather got to Wayne County, the tornado threat was gone. But the rain … five times it started and stopped, each time torrential and I was amazed how it just cut off and stopped, like someone turned off/on a faucet. No pitter patter or gradual ramping up of rain, just on/off … weather radio went on four times from 7:30 to 11:00-ish. I was nervous. I am ready for Fall and cooler weather to put an end to this volatile weather.

      2. I don’t think we would have been aware of what was going on if I hadn’t received an alert on my phone. After that I turned on channel 4 where they were tracking the storms. I did see pictures of the damage that was done in Armada and there is no doubt that it was a tornado. Thank God no one was injured. I wish I believed that fall would bring better things but so far nothing this year has been normal so I am just bracing for the unexpected.

      1. Not as much as you would expect, but there is a system that controls how much water there will be out there. Not sure how it all works. The man who developed it said there would never be more than a foot deep out there. The cranes really seem to enjoy my yard and spend alot of time eating bugs and worms .
