This Year the Farm has given us all so much! Our guests, friends and the animals and gardens we keep. We are so grateful for all of these gifts! Eggs, rhubarb, grapes, cherry and heirloom tomatoes, cabbage, corn, broccoli, pumpkins, zucchini, squash and string beans!
Stormy Doves at Spirit Horse Farm
Stormy Doves at Spirit Horse Farm, Yea! The doves have come, settled into their new dovecot, and are now practicing their flyovers. I have to admit, its a little scary when they leave. Will they come back? They are sometimes gone for hours, and at 50+ miles per hour, I just wonder how they come back, and also why! Plus, the Cooper and Sharp shin Hawks must already know! Today they were out in the Heavy Storms, and got so soaked they looked like they might turn to slush!
The dovecot is almost done and the doves arrive on Wednesday! I can’t wait to watch them circling over the farm. We have two peacocks looking for a new home, and tomorrow we go meet Sonny, a Tennessee Walking Horse with a great presence. He might be perfect!
The guests are so quiet tonight, but we can see their shadows (20 or so) against the garden walls in the flickering light of their wood fires. The weather here is perfectly cool, and the outdoor fireplaces are more popular than even the shimmering lights from the pool! June in New England can sometimes be like this, but in a few short weeks, the pool will definitely be the popular night spot at Spirit Horse.
