Haphazard Days


Never mind that Friday Random business, everyday around the farmette is a bit random.  

The Redbuds are blooming.  A welcome sight after a dreary winter.  



Storms seem to be on the horizon for the week.  I tire of the daily rain, but I do love the sky shots.  



Seeds continue to be planted and I cannot wait to see some bees on Sunflowers.  This pic is from last year.  




The people, dogs, chickens, and cows of the farmette aren't the only ones who love the warm weather.  The daughter's parakeet gets some extra porch time.  


I was asked to take a group photo of my daughter's softball team.  I likened it to herding cats.

  9. We don't have the GREEN you have yet.. but we do share the rainy gloom. Atleast for us.. it's NOT SNOW.

    And I've done many of those type of shots... it ain't easy. Herding cats, exactly.

  10. Love the redbud photo. IN the second photo down, there is a tree to the left with lots of limbs shooting up and out. Do yo know what kind that is?
    It looks just like one in our yard we've been trying to figure out. It starts summer with yellow, tiny flowers that the bees love.

  29. Nice selection of photos and every bit as interesting as a Friday 5. In previous post, I'm glad Secret Agent Man was not hurt getting out on that old bridge. He is more brave than I am ... but, yes, he did get some neat photos! :-)
