GREETINGS

Yesterday was a delightful summer day, Angus back to the vets and has gained on tenth of a pound hopefully he is getting back to his old self.  I found periwinkle in where the sheep were so it was a hectic moment getting them out of there.  The plant is a poison to sheep and goats.  I am going to pull it up in that area and  reseed the area in Orchard grass and clover seed.  I discussed it with Joe yesterday and he is the leading authority around here on hay.  Because I have such a small area for them to graze Orchard grass will come back quicker and clover has a good root system.

Some of the Maple trees are starting to turn colors already. My Dad used to say that this was a sign of a weaker or damaged tree.

In this section of The Deerfield River there are many large boulders and pot holes in the rocks left by glaciers.

Ricky is here for a few days and he loves the river so we went yesterday afternoon.  I think the water is too cold for my arthritic legs but i sat in a chair in the water.  Ricky swam for well over an hour.  The water is beautiful with fast moving currents.  Plenty of rocks to dive or jump off of.

ADOPTION PROCESS

I have started a cat adoption process.  I found a wonderful 1 year old tuxedo cat on pet finder.  His name happens to be Big Sam.    He has a sad story as most animals for adoption do.  I hope that I will be able to get him. I found him on Petfinder which so many people use these days.  I should know by he weekend.   

Many thanks for reading my blog on this sunny day  I hope you have a glorious day.   Carole
