" YESTERDAY"

A beautiful Sunrise started our day..................

We made a trip to our favorite local Plant Nursery and I came back with two Ferns

Here's a closer view.......these ferns are huge and gorgeous..

We decided to buy new Hummingbird Feeders and got those up..no action yet!
Our friends put theirs up Saturday after spotting some.......
The window you see...that's TWP window and I am eyeing the feeders as I type....
This is our view from the screen porch when we sit out there

And here's a few of our Brangus Gang....that's the newest out front
posing for me...........

Some have names....this is Doublewide, "big Dub" for short.
She's due to give birth any day.........

This is the bull we got a couple of months ago..........
His name is Bochephus but Hubby calls him "bully man"

Then we had a beautiful sunset with some help from a jet plane.........

And.......the full moon over the pond, was just spectacular!
These pictures don't come close to how pretty it was.........


So there's yesterday.......At Swiftwater Farm............
Thank you so much for stopping by................

I am off to the nursery today. Praying fervently that I shall not be tempted to purchase things too early! I usually get seduced by all the colour and then have to scurry around at the next (sure to be) frost, covering things up. I have promised myself!! Just little fir trees and hydrangeas today!

Lovely photos of your beautiful farm!

Big Dub made me smile! The ferns look right at home on your lovely porch, Carol.

I took some pictures of that same beautiful moon last evening.

Pamela....I didn't let myself get carried away either, just in case.

Willow....Big Dub is a trip! If looks could kill,well you know.
That moon was really something else!

Those cattle get the royal treatment from their master Vicki.
Thank you for visiting.

Thanks, Paul.

Mississippi, huh. hmmm, anything that gives me a sign of spring is attracting my attention. I'm stuck here in the March from 'heck', way up in Maine. It's this time of year that the beauty of snow and winter has run it's course. I'm soooo ready to buy some ferns! Nice.

Hi Carol,

Lovely pictures of your lovely farm.

Our hummies usually arrive the first week of April. I am hoping the honey-bees that took over my feeders last summer, find their nectar elsewhere this year!

Love the sunset and the moon over the pond, and your nice view from your porch. Well, I loved them all. My memory card reader still isn't working, and the new one I bought today isn't working either! So gotta take it back and try again. Waaahhh!
But I enjoyed your Spring pictures immensely.

Hugs,

Renie

I love the moon pics - it's posing for you in the very right place! Didn't know you had cows.

We had a lovely day with you! Thank you. I like all your photos, but the moon reflecting in the water wins! Have a great SWF!

Lovely pictures. Here is a Web site that tracks the arrival of the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. I love to watch for the reports.
