Lots in bloom but one of our favorites is finding an elusive cornflower. It is a wildflower & blooms every two years. It grows a large phallic blossom of yellow bliss. They are found occasionally along the roadside, so kinda odd where this this one has sprouted.

It’s leaves are soft w a slight fur feeling to them. After the bloom we pick seeds and hope for two more years that one will grow. Don’t recall them having a scent.

Grow, grow.

Also. A lot more deer. All doe, and close enough to take a shot if was deer season. This deer came within 300 feet and just stared at us. “Like hello human.” – then darted off back into the woods.

Finally, the Azelias are in full bloom. Got lucky and found rare orange and yellow ones to plant. Sitting on the porch debating what chore to do next, they smell like heaven. Not like funeral flower smell either!

Enjoy the Memorial Day holiday. We have four days off which translates into four days of farm work. Maybe we can unstick the tractor! No rain in forecast.

Deer are running every where too. All doe so far. Here’s a shot of one being chased by the geese.

The deer are everywhere! Be safe drivers and hunters, it’s rutting season. Snapped this doe after she ran in front of the truck, only to stand there and look at me like nah, nah you missed me.

Deer is Good

Deer steak is awesome and so is the benefit of providing food for your family. God rest her soul, she was not shot in vein.  We’ll say a prayer of thanks to God like always. 

Let us tell you it wasn’t an easy day.  Snow, sit, freeze, wait, freeze more, shoot, gut, clean, drag, show the kids, tag, take to government tagging station, hang to bleed out, clean gun, store gun in safe, wash blood covered clothes,and next week back to the butcher for steaks and ground kielbasa!  Just in time for New Year’s Eve.

Not that it really has anything to do with it but if you haven’t seen The Deer Hunter http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Deer_Hunter  now is the perfect time.  The film stars Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, Meryl Streep, John Savage, John Cazale, George Dzundza and Chuck Aspegren.  We’re not giving away the ending but…The film ends with the whole cast at the wake, singing “God Bless America” and a toast.

Indeed, God Bless America.
