A Pond Mystery

Pond life is peaceful these days.  Only two ducks are calling this space "home" during the summertime... 

in stark contrast to the almost 50 wild ducks who populated this waterway last winter.  There are hidden residents here as well... several large fish, frogs, turtles, and snakes as well as transient raccoons, deer, and all sorts of small mammals who stop by for a drink (or to fish for a meal).

So much happens in this place when there are no humans around to witness it.  Game cameras give us some insight as to the daily happenings and are quite handy when a little detective work is needed....

Join us for a video, as we solve a pond mystery....

Yesterday's mail brought an item that I recently ordered.  Because farm work is done outside, and often in the bright sunshine, too much sun exposure can be an unwelcome side effect.  I typically wear a hat when I am out in the sun for prolonged periods of time.  Then, I came across this in one of my social media feeds, and thought it a wonderful idea to decrease sun exposure to my forearms....


I ordered a Sm/Med and it fits perfectly.  What a great idea!!
