The Canadian Geese have been coming to the fields behind the farm by the hundreds for days now..
We have three deer that have been cross over the farm and feeding around the farm in the local fields. It appears to be a big doe with two yearlings.
There little trouble makers have broke out of the fence one to many time and are now in lock down after I caught them up by the bean teepee.. sneaky girls.. very sneaky!
The big river is staring to break up now.. the local creek is overflowing its banks and there are local roads closed off other then local traffic and only if you can get to your place before you can’t! Its not effected us, despite the higher levels, it has not gotten even to close to the pasture fields before it started to retreat
However down the road, its been much worse.. this is not a lake.. this is hundreds of acres of fields.. hopefully it will start to drain soon.
Beautiful photos. Wow, that’s a lot of water in those fields, hope it drains away soon. This spring has been pretty crazy for a lot of places.
As the river finishes breaking up and starts to move better this area will come down quite fast, its all tiled land and so it drains really well when given the chance.. On our really bad “flood” year three years ago.. this area flooded three times.. I felt so bad for the farmer.. Agree, the weather is all over the place for sure.
What lovely pictures – seems like spring is coming your way, slowly but steadily!
It really is.. these were taken before our last new dump of snow but it is coming!
We’ve lots of geese back too….and our summer resident mallard couple flew into our pond a few days ago – she raises eight or nine ducklings here every year. I find it interesting to see the results of changes in weather patterns- for three years now we have whooping cranes stopping by, and this year – swans down the road in a friends field. The swans are about a hundred miles ‘off course’ from their usual nesting grounds. The cranes…..not sure why they’re migrating over us now.
Wow, that’s pretty far off for the swans.. hmm The changing weather is for sure effecting different things at different timing.
Do those field floods leave any usable sediment behind? … love that ‘innocent’ white face, and the almost-smirk! 😀
Hi Widdershins, it really does leave behind some amazing soil for growing in.. once you haul out the floating stuff to compost in big piles (which I might happen to have permission to raid for drift wood and so forth lol) Its amazing how well crops grow on the flood lands, when you can in to plant in there. Glad you enjoyed the photos 🙂
Thought so, naturally occurring floods are great value. 🙂
Great pics FG! Love, love, LOVE the “ice cube”
