A moment of zen

Take a short time away from the hustle and bustle of your day and look at this Green Bay Botanical fountain.

Wishing you peace today.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Avoiding Mosquitoes

These flying blood suckers are driving me crazy. In this video I talk about my solution, or at least, a partial solution.

At the end of this video, you’ll hear Stella barking. I had made a sound that attracted her attention.

After she showed up barking, Stella noticed I had on my pink slicker. She insisted we go outside again.

Since I just re-sprayed the material, it worked perfectly. Mosquitoes avoided me.

Now Stella is happy and sleeping near me as I write.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Feeding the blue jays

I bought this spring peanut feeder just for my blue jays. Too bad they have not taken to it, even after months of it hanging on the porch.

So I adapt and put the peanuts out where they want to eat.

Maybe they will discover the hanging spring peanut feeder eventually.

I always thought blue jays were smart birds. They have proved me wrong.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Sandhill cranes

An early morning walk down the farm lane brought me close to these two.

I love the sound of sandhill cranes. They are so prehistoric.

The sun hadn’t touched them yet, but they were walking and talking at this early hour.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Swans arrive

Spring migration is going strong. Swans have stopped on the farm and in other parts of the Seymour area.

They are far away from the road so I walked down the lane and zoomed in on these white visitors.

They come and they go.

The swans are signs of spring, even when snow is predicted to fly this evening.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
