It starts out Foggy

We are hoping for a nice week
the straw has been in the field 3 weeks

we cut for haylage and for hay

the forecast is promising

but it starts off foggy, so it is very wet

Shed & Lane

The doors are being installed

See through, may be nice especially in the winter
It looks almost done

This is where the leftovers from the bank barn are useful
a base for the widening of our lane

there was a victim, a maple tree that Rien liked very much

This is where the barn used to be

Rain in Algonquin

Algonquin Park is beautiful, even when it rains

We always try to bring peanuts

for these little critters

they get pretty brave

even taking the peanuts right out of your mouth

mixed blessing

Let's see if we can make a selfie doing that
