Opa & Oma


Olga & Stephen sleep in the camper
look at the rainbow
we had some hail to go with it


the birds may have made a nest in the drainpipe


Sharpening my garden tools 


It only happens when my dad is over


It's very wet but the weeds grow like crazy


Checking out our Dutch news paper

Movie from Rien

video

Storm brewing and Beauty after


We have had some dark clouds


and screens flying out


 what a beautiful sky after the rain


So glad I had my camera with me
it only lasted a few minutes

Avon Trail 2


After we walked through this field following trail blazes
we saw newer trail blazes in the bush beside


lunch break, letting our feet rest


view from our lunch break


We saw many farmers


A big tree cluster


not always easy to find a good place to sit


back at the car 5 1/2 hours later

Avon trail 1


Last Friday we went to walk the Avon Trail again


view of a country church


The advise is for spring hiking
makes sense in these kind of fields


we came across lots of these stairs 


The trillium were in full bloom

First Crop - Picking Stones




almost 2 weeks ago
New seeding, so we try to do a good job


Clouds were moving in


Turkey Vultures in the sky


Almost done



Rien had seen an egg from the vultures earlier
we went to check but it was broken

These vultures smell very bad

Dust


Lots of dust in the field earlier this month


you could hardly see what Rien was doing


At least Rien's tractor has a cab


Paul is not as lucky but he likes older tractors


Time for a good cleaning
