Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Signs of Spring

The poplar leaves are starting to come out. My noisy wood pecker is back. He can be very annoying when he sounds off on a fence post about 06:00 am.

 The fields are starting to show more green, and the horses are spending more time looking for something big enough to bite off.
 Best of all, the rhubarb is leafing out!
 One more shot of Mrs. Woody.
Spring is finally starting to happen. Pretty soon I will be able to sit back and watch the grass grow!

looks like you've got yourself a yellow-bellied sapsucker, there! neat!

Well...I think you'll have competition for watching the grass grow from the horses :-)) We've had our first taste of summer last week - hot and sticky, 80F. Ugh. Hope spring lasts a little longer!

I hope you enjoy your spring. It's been a long time coming!

Such beautiful shots of wildlife and the horses. Everything is looking great, compared to all the SNOW you had for so long! I guess we still green nearly year round in my part of Texas. I lived in Germany for 3 years; it's the only time I can relate to living with hardened, frozen earth. I admire you being able to survive in those conditions!

Guess the woodpeckers know that saying, "the early bird catches the worm". May the Lord send the green quickly your way. Love the pop of green from the rhubarb.

Beautiful black horse. I like the name you gave your tree too.
