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..

Soggy ground

This is the way our side yard looked this morning. It has warmed up a bit, melted the snow and rained all morning.
We have several of these mini ponds around the property. The garage floor was a bit flooded as well due to the ground being saturated and the gutters were overflowing onto soggy ground.. Later today it stopped rainning but more expected to tonight with maybe snow. We are counting our blessings no worse damage done and grateful we live where we do and not like some other parts of the world where floods happen and loss is horrible. I think of the spring when all the water from the hills around us have dried and we are complaining of no water. It was pretty today with that gorgeous ball of fire shining onto the melt off... the chickens were happy to get out of their pen and returned to a dry coop tonight.

Sorry about all the looding you are having. I hope things get better. Very strange weather in our country right now. We are having low temps and snow almost every day. Stay safe.

Oh my gosh--I’m sorry you have all the water. So many are dealing with this aren’t they? I feel bad complaining when I have big ponds in my yard too but I am glad it’s not worse. I bet your chickens are very happy. I know mine will be. We are still frozen here.
Happy Saturday :)

Hi Cheryl,
This is some winter. Snows here almost everyday.
Your felting looks interesting. How nice that you have a group of women interested in the same things as you are to play with.
