A Day in the Life

Our days and nights have been filled with haying.  I did take off one afternoon and head to our friend’s wedding, and then stayed overnight for an impromptu family reunion as eight of my nine siblings also attended.  It was awesome.  Pine got to the house at 11:30 a.m. after baling since 8 p.m. the evening before.  He headed to bed for a nap while we headed to the wedding.  He needed some sleep.  My raking duties have been taken over by Cass, our 17-yo.  I’m loving the other stuff I’m getting done— laundry, cleaning, practicing with the Wild Child.  Oh– sleep.  Yeah.  Loving that, too.

The sweet clover is out of control this year.  Many people like sweet clover, and while I agree the smell is glorious, we are not so fond of it.  More about that in a later post.  We measured the Wild Child so you could get a true mental picture of how tall it really is.  She is 3 feet 9 inches.  There are patches much taller than this.IMG_4408

I trimmed some branches in the yard and found these babies.  They are actually right at eye level and right outside the Wild Child’s window.  We loved watching them grow.  They “flew the nest” on Monday. IMG_4419

For the love of grass…  what an amazing year.
