Roses, Cattle and Asters

My Mom has one rose plant.  You know me, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take pictures of pretty pink flowers.

J has been helping the neighbor chop corn; the same neighbor that chopped our corn. I have been holding down the fort and doing skirt work.  We have a full week ahead of us and I like the idea of starting the week with a fresh clean house.

I enjoy photographing the purple asters J’s Mom has in her yard.  Much more fun than going to the Dentist; which is were I am headed today.

Last weekend we moved the pairs at home over to a corn field.  I have been keeping an eye on them to make sure they stay in the filed and out of the hay corral. I would think the cattle would enjoy the good pickings in the corn field, but who knows what a cow really thinks?

The replacement heifers are still enjoying green grass.  Sometimes they enjoy the neighbor’s green grass and J and I get to got for a 4-wheeler ride.

J got home from chopping corn early yesterday and we got a few more loads of hay moved.  The Rancher tried to bale millet, but we had a wind front hit and he had to quit.

How do you like to start your week?

    Hi Robyn, I just popped over from Nancy’s “A Rural Journal” looking for some new blogging friends and well, just to say Hi! I look forward to following your posts about life on a cattle farm… I’m a NYC girl making a new life in rural New England on an old farm… in fact our home is the old barn converted for human habitation 😀 Hope you will get a chance to pop over for a visit sometime… until then – enjoy the rest of your week my new blogging sister.
    Hugs,
    Beth P

    I hope your dentist appt goes well – that’s one of those things that it’s not fun to go to them, but if you don’t it comes back to haunt you as you get older. 🙂 Hopefully the weather will straighten out and you’ll get to get your crops in!

      Darcy and Deanna,

      I needed a regular dental cleaning, but have a tooth that feels funny. Sure enough, I cracked or broke a hunk of filling out of a bottom molar. Yuck! Going back in 2 weeks to get the tooth fixed. At least I didn’t crack my crown.

  5. Dentist?? Not on my list of favorite places to be. Much rather been in those fields with you…great captures of the country!!

    It was so windy last week, but that seems to have subsided for now. Love the phrase “skirt work.” xo

  12. Pretty roses and asters! The asters are such a lovely color. Hope all went well at the dentist!

    That rose is stunning!
    I love asters. They are growing wild everywhere here right now and it’s hard not to take photos since I already have a bunch.
    Idyllic scenes of the cows. I really like the one in the shade.
    Hope your dentist trip went well. I cringe at the thought of dental work.

    I can relate to the dental issues. It’s always something. It sounds like it’s busy in your neck of the woods, too. So … deep breaths and look at those beautiful asters!
