Sweet Sycamore Cradles Both Eagles and the Moon.

On this day I knew the shot, the reason I brought my camera on the expedition. The day before there was a magnificent scene of the moon high over an eagles nest along the river. I wanted to capture it on “film.” This next day, I got that shot, but did not. Over the 24 hours the moon had moved more than I knew, and was beyond the nest when I arrived at the spot shown in the last photo here. That was good luck! I took photos of this and more, and as I headed home an eagle soared over me, and as I turned to watch, did 3 large 360’s over the *other* nest mounted along the river nearby. The eagle drew me back to a high perch above the nest and tree to take the first 2 photos here. It’s in there!

Spring Cleaning in the Barn by the Apothecary Shed

Today was gorgeous and crystal clear blue. A perfect day for cleaning out the winter stalls as well as raking and seeding the barnyard. We will be (even more) sore tomorrow!

A job well done.  Barnyard now in Spring mode.  Raked and seeded.
