Summer Sights

Cotton blossom

Young raccoon

Sunflowers and zinnias

Velvety black butterfly

Zinnias (and weeds!)


I don’t remember what type of flowers these are but they are cute:

What a keeper!

We picked this pumpkin 10.31.16 and it has been sitting on our countertop since!!! We finally cut it open. We gave it to the bunnies and chickens for a special treat.


A coyote recently also got a special treat: Cleo, Buffy, and Specky. No more free range chickens without supervision!


She watches many brutal nature documentaries on a regular basis so is not too traumatized by the chicken massacre.

She misses Specky the most, she was her favorite.

Last day at Forest School

With Nana

Babyzilla has been enjoying loads of attention while her brother is away at summer camp. He has been having fun, from what we’ve heard in letter and the pictures posted on the camp site:


Lots of tribal competitions (woooo Seminoles!)

Getting in a little football

Also rock climbing, canoeing, wrestling, trips to cool waterfalls/swimming holes and more: camp is the best. We are excited to go pick him up this week though because we miss him; he’s been gone a month!

Back to school very soon!

    Wonderful pix of summer doings. Sorry about the chickens… law of the jungle, everybody is food for something. ;)
    Mystery flower: Gomphrena globosa. :)
    ‘Zilla looks so grown up, she’s changed a LOT in four years. :) Same with Spy – totally grown!
