I had a great little outing with the dogs yesterday afternoon. Beautiful skies and light!
I have to say, this new iPhone of mine really has great photo quality!
I love the light in the late afternoon at this time of year.
Here comes Tristan, plodding along. The temps have been above freezing now for several days, but there's still lots of snow left, which shows you just how much we had. Now the temps are dropping and we're supposed to have another deep freeze next week.
Two of my beehives are the black blob just to the left of centre. That hill is a lot steeper than you'd think. I scream when I cross-country ski down it!
Just love those skies!
The dogs helped me check on the bees.
All six of my hives are still alive and buzzing! But they still have a few months to go before spring.
Sophie saw something interesting!
And Tristan took a break in the sumacs near the hives.
She's a good girl about sitting and staying for a photo, but...
...it's a struggle! "Please release me! Please!"
Then I tried some selfies with the dogs.
Tristan washed my face.
That green jacket is over ten years old and is my winter barn coat. It has lasted amazingly well. I have Bag Balm stains on the front from when I treat the chickens' legs for mites!
Impossible to get them both in the pic yesterday. They were too squirmy!
Poor Sophie, trying so hard to be patient.
And the pair of them, barely able to contain themselves as I made them "stay" for another pic. As soon as I said okay, they rushed me and gave me kisses!
Then Tristan wandered off to check out the property line.
What amazing skies! Can you see Sophie just towards the lower left?
Here she comes!
She looks like a deer in this one!
I liked the way the ice in the culvert stayed frozen during the thaw. The water level dropped and left that sheet of ice in there!
Not too much growing right now!
But the ducks enjoyed the sunshine yesterday afternoon.
And today, the pets got a box of (mostly dog) toys in the mail!
Grandma gave me some money for them for Christmas, so I got them a nice selection of goodies (and some new cat claw clippers!)
Tristan liked the pink elephant.
Sophie loved the tug toy with squeaker. Very durable!
And Warren the duck and I did a felfie!
Have a great weekend! It's Gordon's birthday Sunday so I will be busy tending to his every need all day. :)
