Sunny Days



It's been a beautiful warm and sunny week of weather. We got a chance to dry out from the flooding rains and I hope those who needed rain received some.
It was nice to be outside and enjoy the garden, visit friends at their farm, and get some work done in our yard. We brought home farm fresh eggs and juicy sweet peaches from the farm. I made a peach pie from this easy recipe. And we finished a simple but much needed landscape project, removing some overgrown ornamental grass and replacing it with sedum, cactus and sedge grass, all better suited to the hot sunny location.

Clear Creek Fisheries


We added a few new koi to the pond this afternoon. We went to Clear Creek Fisheries and picked out three fish from their large indoor tanks. It's been a beautiful sunny day for a change and it's was fun to see the farm and the acres of ponds.
Clear Creek is an old family run business and sells mostly game fish for stocking large ponds, but they had a nice choice of koi today. The owners also have horses, ponies, goats, sheep and a herd of fallow deer. The small, sweet deer keep their spots as adults and have beautiful velvety antlers.
Our new koi are now home and seem very content in their new pond, happily swimming and eating with the group.

A Visit to the Country

My husband is feeling much better and getting stronger after his surgery, so a drive to the country to visit some friends was just what the doctor ordered!



 A short drive out to the country on a pretty sunny afternoon was good therapy for Randel. And a visit with old friends was fun for everyone. Their bee hives are thriving and fruit trees and berry bushes are loaded with fruit. They have new chickens, ducks and turkeys that have grown so much from the pictures we saw of the little ones in the spring.
 And we came home with some fresh garden salad veggies and fresh eggs.
