The end of the growing season is getting near. I still have 3 rows of sunflowers I am hoping will bloom. It has been a gray week here although the sun is supposed to come out tomorrow. The sheep are wet and soggy and look be-draggled. They are grazing pastures where the burdocks have bloomed and now set seed in their nasty little seed pods.
The sheep are covered with polka dots. Not much you can do about it but look the other way. The burdock seeds are being spread for next year. Some people call them hitchhikers. I think that is the cutest name, don't you?
The last of our kittens is leaving this week. Little Brie is going to live with our neighbor David on his farm. She should help with the rodents as this week she has been tearing apart the moles and mice her mama has brought in for her. I know many of you think this is gross but it is part of a kitten's lessons from their mama. Important stuff if you are a kitten and a mama cat trying to raise a kitten to do what they are supposed to.
I'll leave you today with a bouquet that is gracing the top of a desk here at the farm. Hydrangeas, amaranth, sunflowers - all the most beautiful blooms during the early autumn. Have a great day everyone.
