FOTD: 12.16.19 ~ Day Lilly

~Please click on photos for a better viewing experience~ There were all kinds of Day Lilly plants already planted by a previous owner of our property. I didn’t recognize them at first because the Deerski Family started eating the plant as soon as it started growing. I finally realized what was going on and I…

Lots of Ice, Ice Baby!

After the recent flooding in our area, it has gotten very cold so there is lots of ice, everywhere, on all 4 sides of us. We were looking at some type of ice walking shoes to buy so we don’t slip and break hips! Iced over Bay in the morning ~Please click on photos for…

Welcomed Visitors

The 54 Acres of Pure Glory is not always glorious but then we can’t have our cake and eat it, too. We have to pay our dues. However, when the glorious stuff happens it makes up for everything else. Here is a video I took of a couple of members of the Deerski Family who…

Flood Presents
