north florida - wild florida - MLK day

By: marsHen , 2:43 PM GMT on January 20, 2014

07:00, 35F, a mist on the pastures. waning gibbous moon setting over sheep barn. dawn. brief walk with pup. guardian sleeping by truck.
09:10, 47F, hay to all herbivorous critters. no wild things in the trees. fed chickens. pleasant walk with pup and guardian in cactus field - a work in progress. the dominant vegetation is bahia grass, dog fennel, and prickly pear. once the goat pasture, it is off limits to domestic animals since goats were sold 4 years ago. pines, oaks, and palmettos slowly springing up. followed the tracks of pickup to sky burial ground. stopped short of it and faced the sun. clouds of water vapor were rising from the damp ground.. very beautiful!
deer hunting season ended yesterday! not that I'm anti-hunting, but I worry about all the does that pass through the farm and have their fawns here.
17:50, 52F, partly cloudy. friend came over with her chainsaw and we cut more firewood. a huge laurel oak limb fell in the ex-goat yard. that, and some of the smaller limbs from the tree that fell on my electric wires during t.s. andrea, got cut up and stacked in the goat shed. pot roast for dinner. did chores at last light. peach and lavender sunset.
21:00, 47F, some stars out. a mist. guardian dashing all over farm barking. pup barking at something in hay barn when lamb got bottle-fed.
