COLRAIN AND THE CRAFTS OF COLRAIN
This is the view coming into Colrain. Its beautiful in any season but Fall is the best with all the wonderful colors.
All the signs are up for the Crafts of Colrain, In another 6 weeks it will be here and people will delight in what we all have to offer.
A couple of days ago I got the Primer Fence catalog. I had bought the parts to build the feed bin from them. People have been telling me about this face thing that you put over a rams face and they can’t see forward. therefore they cannot butt people or other sheep. Where here it was in print.
I am going to order one. It will take time for him to get used to it and I will only use it when I will be away, in the spring and when I need to clean the barn. No separate yard, no real changes for him except occasionally he will have to wear this mask. I think some grain may entice him.
Yesterday I picked most of the Sweet Annie and some of the artemisia. I wanted to get it picked before we had any rain. I did leave some to reseed itself for next year.
HESTER AND THE NORTH HENS
As you can see Hester has finally grown her feathers back only one stylishly purple one left
The other hens are coming along well. As soon as I finish the hen house they will move inside and will still have a small yard till the snow flys.
Well I have spent a small fortune on dried food for Miss Bisbee, she didn’t like any of it. So I have given up and bought a small bag of Fancy Feast of course she gobbled it down. She just loves Fancy Feast and its not the best thing for her kidney disease but at least she is eating it. Maybe now she will put on a little weight with the addition of dried food.
Many thanks for reading my blog today, I am sharing one more picture for my you and my friends who are in Alabama and are missing the fall. Its taken right near my house.
The canal feeds the bandiage plant that is located on the highway. All sorts of animal life live in or near it including snapping turtles and fish. Carole
I am not sure what I will do with it but I want to save the seeds and maybe make a few wreaths.
