Final Farm Fotos of 2013: A Look Back
(Which I have no doubt they did.)
Also in the spring~ fuzzy bottoms were hatched. *squeeeeeal*
Summer of 2013 will be remembered as the "Summer I spent on the mower." I don't think I have mowed this much since we moved here.... we had so much rain this year the grass was literally growing overnight. I think we spent more in gas for the mower than we did for the car all summer. *Whew*
Hubby's beautiful garden in June... we had very good luck with almost everything he planted~ but some critters called all their friends and relatives and helped themselves to our cantaloupe. *UGH*
I was so proud of my beautiful sunflowers, though... they brought a smile to my face every time I looked at them.
We only lost one member of the farm family this year, but it was my favorite big hen, Lucille. She was sickly in the spring, but seemed to improve over the summer. Then, in early fall, I found her lying motionless on the ground one morning. I will always miss her quirky chirps and seeing her running towards me, hoping I had a treat for her.
(And I always did...)
Sleep tight, sweet girl.
The bees did very well in 2013... Hubby and I took off nearly 9 gallons of honey in August, and we still left 2 full supers of honey for them to eat this winter.
Fingers crossed they make it until spring.....
The hummers were late arriving in the spring, but they also lingered late into October before finally leaving for the winter. I miss them.... and I hope they show up at the feeders early in 2014.
And January through December, 365 days a year, you can always find Lily doing her favorite thing.
Thanks for taking a look back with me!
As we watch the sun setting on the old year, I get to say it one last time in 2013.....
Happy Friday, everyone!
