Sammy Tries Again

It was afternoon feeding time and Sam was ready to play.

"Come on, Sally...don't you want to play with me?"

"Go away, Sam...can't you see I'm eating," replied Sally.

"Hi Mom, no one wants to play.  I'm thirsty, anyway."

"Can't I have just a little, Sissy?"

While Sammy was trying to sneak a quick drink,
I noticed this at the feeder.


Goats can be extremely resourceful when they have an itch to scratch...

Sammy next tried to entice old Jill to play with him.

I think he was satisfied with her kind of play, too.

Every time he came close to her, she ran him off again...
with just a look!

sort of like a game of chase.
(Where only Sam is expending any energy!)

(Sammy's favorite!)

Last are a few pictures of my flowers.
This is what they look like today.

All too soon, summer's vibrant colors will be gone...
replaced by the grays and browns of winter.

Let's enjoy these colors while they are here!

Zinnias keep on giving and giving.
I have cut so many bouquets of this for the house.

Lovely cockscomb...I think I will try drying this.
Wouldn't it look perfect on a Christmas tree?

love, love, love!

Purple asters...my favorite of the fall flowers...

Second life for spring's violas...

Snapdragons... remind me of my childhood.
They were planted around our house.
Have you ever squeezed a snapdragon by the cheeks and made her talk?

What? You never heard of that?
You definitely need a visit to the farm.
I have much to teach you!
