Hubby and I are going to take some time off for a little R & R!
Will be back soon!
Not much going on in Coopville except prepping for the hurricane that MIGHT pass by Joisey,
The giant sunflowers are starting to get their heads:
I tied them together so hopefully the wind doesn't knock them down.
Still some pretty flowers left, but they are really starting to thin out:
We will put the hanging baskets in the barn is the weather gets too bad.
Such a pretty pink!
Kitty-Kat doesn't give a hoot about any silly storm!
Maybe I should give them names.....
How about "Pellet" & "BB"?
The largest fly I have ever seen!
These birds flew around like this for almost an hour. Some bugs must have
hatched and they were just feasting on them!
A cotton ball sky!
My very, very favorite weed:
Another great haul yesterday!!!!
Think you're handy with a needle and thread?
Tailorbird, any of the nine species of the genus Orthotomus, of the Old World warbler family Sylviidae, that sew together the edges of one or more leaves to contain the nest. A tailorbird makes a series of holes with its long slender bill and then draws plant fibre, insect silk, or even stolen household thread through the holes to form separate loops, which are knotted on the outer side.
Hubby and I went to the county fair:
Very, very disappointed - hardly ANY chickens there.
Usually they take up an entire building.
It was mostly rabbits - this guy was enormous!
Always enjoy the machine shop:
Don't they make big carousels anymore?
Lots of quilts - they were lovely:
Plenty of art work, too:
