Oh, hello!

You never know what's coming next when someone in the family yells, "Wow! Come see this!" on the farm. It could be just about anything. Yesterday morning, my husband exclaimed that when he went outside. On the pond and in the trees were a whole flock of white birds. We have no idea where they came from or why they decided to visit us, but they were lovely! Are they cranes, egrets, herons? What is the difference? I think I'm going to assign that to my son to figure out!

Our resident flock of Canadian Geese did not agree with us that these birds were a welcome site. In fact, from the sound of it, the geese didn't care for it one bit. But since they have no financial interest in our farm, we take their opinion very lightly.

You just never know what the day will bring on the farm. And that's what makes it so special.
