For the past several evenings,
we have heard the cry of a peacock in the woods
that separate our house from the barn and animals.
And then, two evenings ago, at sundown, Amanda came face to face
with a beautiful peacock hanging out with the chickens near our manure pile.
Last evening we decided to take a walk in search of said feral peacock.
We let Annie go without a leash...
truly a treat for this pup who loves to track and hunt.
She ran and ran and ran.
we walked to our fruit orchard ( the newer one we planted in the past few years).
We were delighted to see that the cherry trees finally have cherries on them...
The pear trees have tiny pears, too!
Annie had a blast running free.
No peacock, however.
Just Sir Elton...crowing his evening song...
We stopped by the pumpkin patch...
The frequent rain storms we have had lately have kept this garden well watered.
The cabbage are getting bigger...
as is the corn and sunflowers...
As for the pumpkins...
I think we will end up with a nice crop!
The most prolific plants of all, however,
are our blueberries.
This year the bushes are loaded with fruit.
Another couple of weeks and we will be harvesting blueberries like crazy! (100 bushes!)
As for feral peacocks...I will keep searching.
Hopefully, one of these evenings I will catch a photo of one!
