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

Just in Time!

Yesterday, I listened to the weather forecast and decided to pick these. The forecast was for a severe frost warning!

 It only got to -1C (30F), but it was enough to wilt off the pole beans.
 It also got the bush beans.
 I figured that Brooklyn might not want to swim. This was a bad assumption. The ducks were enjoying the warmth of the sun on shore, but not for long.
 Around and around she went, trying to catch one of those pesky ducks.
Still in hot pursuit.
 The muskrat was not involved in the chase.
 Nor were these ducks that were hiding in the weeds.
 The ducks are getting very close to flight. There have also been several large flocks of Sand Hill Cranes way up high "V" ing their way south.
It would appear that fall is upon us!
