Friday’s Farm Fotos

September 17, 2010

I can NOT believe September is half over already.  Time flies?  No, I think it’s traveling at warp speed, at least warp 10 or something!

Anyway, here we are at another Friday, and here we have some pictures from around the farm this week.

The hummingbirds are still hanging around.  Here’s one high up in a tree. . .

Keeping an eye on things.

This little hummer seems to be watching his bigger wild bird cousins having a wild party in the local watering hole. . .

Splish, splash, I was takin' a bath!

But the little hummingbird isn’t the only fowl creature  keeping watch. . .

I need to keep an eye on things.

She’s not so interested in what the wild birds are doing, but checking out what her guy is doing at the local bird pub. . .

"Do you come here often?"

But she needn’t worry he’s going to make friends with some wild chick.  Instead he just gets his drink, then leaves.

"Must fly!"

While the birds are refreshing themselves, the farm collie is just taking it easy and napping in the shade.

Forget the bird fiesta, it's time for a dog siesta!

Of course, all I have to do is whisper “mailbox” and he’s up and ready to run out the driveway.  Unfortunately, that often means the neighbor’s dog, Gracie, has to rush over and get all hysterical.

Gracie having hissy fits.

Generally speaking, Toby ignores her.  He acts like she doesn’t even exist, except when she starts bugging him, he always does this one thing. . .

I’m sure he’s just marking his territory and not telling her to… uh, yeah.

And for another week whizzed by, that’s the way it is on the farm.
