Lilacs

Another busy week and weekend behind us!  The good news is, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. 

Friday night we went to bed listening to the rain fall.  We woke up to 3/4th of an inch in the gauge!

Saturday I spent the morning cleaning in the basement.  We have an un-finished basement that is home to the pantry, washer/drier and used as storage.  I try to keep it neat, but out of sight can easily become out of mind. 

Saturday afternoon Cousin T’s son graduated from High School.  J headed to town to see R receive his diploma.  Afterwards, J and I went to a reception at the ranch.  Lots of good food and catching up with family and friends.

Between the rain and Graduation Saturday was a “slow day.”  We more than made up for it Sunday! We started the day shortly after 6 am by finding a couple of bulls in with the replacement heifers, moved pairs, sorted yearlings, worked the steers and turned them out to grass.  After diner we sorted more pairs and I mowed the lawn. Oh, and the replacement heifers broke the fence and got out, twice.

Monday found us up early and branding the last bunch of calves at home.

The rest of the week includes moving more cattle to grass.

Roxie and I took a 4-wheeler ride out to one of the tree strips.  I knew these lilacs were in bloom and wanted to photograph them.  It was a beautiful evening to take a few pictures with a good dog as company.

    I picked some lilacs and put them in a vase before supper. What a beautiful smell.

  2. Your lilacs are just lovely! I wish we had some in my garden. 🙂

    Sounds like you have been busy! Our lilacs didn’t fully bloom, and neither did our tulips this year! Love the one with the texture!

      Emily,
      Funny you say that. It seems like our lilacs have taken a long time to bloom. Some of the lilacs I see in town bloomed 2 weeks ago. I have also been keeping an eye on my Mother-in-Law’s tulips and irises neither have bloomed yet. Again, some of the ladies in town had irises bloom a little over a week ago.
