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

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

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
