Five on Friday

It has been quite a while since I posted a Five on Friday post. So long in fact that we now have new hosts for the get together. Amy has handed the reins over to Carly and Tricky. Anyway, I am here with five photos. I think I have shared most of the pictures on Instagram at some point this week so apologies if you've had to see them twice. 


1. This nerine has been flowering quite nicely. I think I planted it years ago mostly so I could have an entry in that section of our local agricultural show.


 2. The ewes are enjoying the autumn. It is so much kinder to them than the summer heat and they really do seem happier.

 3. The windy weather brought an old, dead tree down on the fence last weekend. I'm glad it didn't do much damage and we have some firewood from it too.


4. I'm enjoying the autumn too. Enough work to do and enough down time to enjoy a cup of tea and some writing time. I love the early night fall and the cool temperatures.

Chooky aka Hawkie

5. It's Chooky's birthday today sort of. Three years ago today she lived while every other chicken and turkey on our farm lost their lives. It was a sad, sad day then. But, we have her and she has become such a coddled little bird who spends her days following me where I go (when she can).


Anyway, that is it for me for this Five on Friday post. If you would like to join in please click on over to the FAST Blog. Or maybe even click on over just to have a read.

Bye for now,
Tracy

The Nerine flower is such a vibrant colour. Poor Chooky to loose all her feathered friends no wonder you look out for her and coddle her:)

Lovely photos. I like the one of the ewes. They look like they are trying to get closer to the camera to have their photo taken.

Happy Five on Friday

That orange flower is stunning! It's spring here but a cup of tea still sounds really good. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

The sheep look as if they've just been groomed - so clean and tidy. Do you groom sheep? The ones I saw in Ireland were dusty and matted and didn't smell very nice. Of course, they came over to the fence for me to pet them. I'd love petting these sweet little black-faced darlings.

sorry to hear about tree that hurt you fence but glad that it was not harm at all and you got some fire woods too.

your hen reminded me all the chickens my late mom used to have back in my native village and one of them seemed preoccupied and dominated on my mother as she would shout loudly when other hens will come near to my mom.
glad she found her love in you guys
