The trees across the road have broken tops and one of the willow around the pond has broken off at a fork. There are tree branches drooping everywhere. The sun is working its magic though and the sound of falling ice and water is everywhere.
Our Old Oak is fine, although it is rather droopy...it still bears scars from a severe Ice Storm years ago and I worry about it during any storm. It is the tree of my heart!

Looking South East
The Flowering Quince, it will be blooming in December, it continues to amaze me with its beautiful pinkish flowers in Spring and Fall.
The view toward the Park, so bright and sparkling.
It is lovely and crisp out, the chickens are glad its sunny today, they do love to roam to forage and bad weather means storm stayed in the barn. Even though the barn is big and has lots of things to scratch it is just NOT grass and stuff out on the farm!
The new chicks are turning into wonderful young pullets and if your looking into new hens you really might want to look at the New Hampshire Red, we are very impressed with our Accidental Hens. They are very friendly, growing well and are sure free ranging. They are uniform in size and a lovely red color. They are sassy too and always come to see if we have feed and demanding if it is time for a snack.
Now its time to go and clean the barn. I have more blogs in the works, and as winter nears find I am doing more inside again. I do love being outside in good weather.
The cattle are fine and we are enjoying milk every day. Life is good.
God Bless you all!
