Enjoying, no, LOVING the cooler weather we're having. Still no rain though. I'm having fun finally getting my finally finished B&B ready for some guests.

Good morning! The pictures of your B&B and surrounding landscape are so beautiful. Makes you want to stand and take in a big breath of fresh air. I'm sure your guests will be delighted. We have been getting rain off and on and it is sooooo welcome. I hope you get some soon. All is going fairly good here for the moment. Nothing we can't handle anyway. Darla and Millie are so big, they are feeling the enormity of it, I can see why. As wide as they are long. Estella is doing great with the milking, you'd think she's been milked for years. Don't even need to use the side rail or leg strap. Strange how different each one is. Enjoy the weekend!

That's great news about Estella.

We have some rain predicted. The sky is clear and there are a few clouds forming. I'm hopeful. Our annual rainfall is 21 inches, Jan. to Dec. So far we've had 2.90 inches, two of those in Jan. and Feb. We should have had 13.13 by now.

My nectarines have come and gone, a beautiful crop. My peaches are coming on next and they are GORGEOUS this year.



Buttercup and Daisy are in the parlor giving milk every day. Plenty of cream. Soon I'll know if Daisy and Rosetta are pregnant. We AI'ed Rosetta twice during her last heat because I think my first attempt was premature as I observed her heat maturing.

How are Darla and Millie doing, Janet? Jasper is still the love of our lives. He follows me everything, even on long hikes. As soon as he hears my voice out and about, he comes running.

Good morning MaryJane! Beautiful peaches! None here this year, but hopefully next year. I'm blessed with raspberries, raspberries, raspberries and roses. Made a raspberry/ricotta cream swiss roll last week. Raspberry pies, and many pkgs. for the freezer. There are still green ones to ripen and the little bumblebees are still pollination the little flowers. I'll be picking into October it appear. Darla and Millie coming along okay so far. Darla, Both due Oct. 4th. Rest of the gang, Grady is growing like a weed. It's gonna get a bit crazy in October. Tree leaves are turning colors, autumn is here.

Your Swiss roll makes my mouth water. Beautiful. I've quit picking raspberries I have so many and still have some of last year's in the freezer.

Your girls are looking great. Of the three in your last photo, who is who, right to left???

Good morning! Two new blooms this morning amongst the orchids. Okay, the cows from right to left, Millie is on the ground front, Nellie is behind her, Estella is standing with Grady right behind her on ground. Nice and cool this morning but to get to upper 80's today. Yes the raspberries are prolific this year. Mine were all used up so I'm picking until there's no more.
