mixed bag

Mixed bag of photos. It was raining yesterday, big surprise. BUT, the grass is loving the rain, so we are just fine with a little more wet...


Mackie taking in the scenery:








































Java out in the rain:

















Danny tolerating a few drops:




































And, the new trees that we planted... I like to think that they are very happy at their new home. The birds love these trees (especially since all of the trees next door have been cut down, oops, did I say that?!), and they have new growth! yes, new growth. That translates to me (not a horticulturalist) that they are going to grow, be happy and establish themselves. Probably the only thing worse than planting 8 foot trees in the cold rain is pulling a dead 8 foot trees out of the ground in hot August. Not gonna happen here.


I'm proud of our trees and their new baby growth:



























































Oh, and Maggie was in the barn. She cannot do rain... yet. Someday she will understand that it will not harm her. Someday hopefully soon. She looked disappointed watching Java graze in the rain. I'll work on it, baby steps with Maggie in the rain. We don't need any monster beast episodes. Although, she is making up for lost time this morning, she is out (as I type it is not raining) and loving every minute, and she is sooo pretty to watch in the paddock.

Looks like the trees are doing well - the rain is good for that!

The trees look very happy! Your place is so perfect and serene looking, I can see why you love it so much.
