It has been so gray and overcast here, not good outdoor picture taking conditions. So here's a picture taken inside of my twin ivies. They are both from cuttings, the original plant was given to my mother when she was in the hospital having me! They were both in need of bigger pots so to feed my cravings of playing in the dirt I decided to re-pot them Monday. They love the light from all the south windows and have done very well this winter.

I caught these little bandits eating corn from this past fall's corn shock. We had left it on the edge of the woods for the chickens and birds to clean up but it looks like it has attracted interest from some others. They are both pretty little and look like the winter has been a bit hard on them so we left them to eat.

Blizzard 2011

February of 2011 arrived with a storm for the record books. Almost two feet of snow with winds of 35-45 miles per hour. We spent this morning digging paths to the barns
Photobucket and even off of the back deck. Photobucket
I decided to just try my luck breaking through the drifts to the chicken coop. Photobucket
As always, Ginger was right there with us!
Dan came by this morning in a MODoT tractor to clear the road.
According to Punxsutawney Phil, we are going to have an early spring. Let's hope!
