Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Winter Birds of a feather....

We are still in the midst of winter and I saw these local birds on the lake this week. I wonder how they survive without me taking them under my wing, along with my chickens.  When I spotted these mallards I think of   the pair that return to our pond every year.  They should be coming in a month or so..I hope this year they have babies.  Pelicans live on the lake and this one was all alone. We drove around to the city park and came upon these geese along the river bank. Now I know I want to get some of these too.. But convincing Clay might take some negotiating. I know they are noisey and quite messy but.... I do love them.
