Icelandic filly pictures and a video

DH took some photos of me this morning...when I was trying to take photos of the filly. She had more interest in the buttons on my jacket.

Stjarna doesn't look as good as I would like in this video... however, she is looking much better in person. But here is Edda...

The Icelandic Filly is finally born



Presenting the Silver Bay Icelandic filly. In the process of picking a name for her.
Curious wee filly. Can see the grey mane and the white with a bit of grey on top tail and an itty bitty wee star on her face.
She is a Glymur frá Innri-Skeljabrekka granddaughter, out of Stjarna fra Chapman Crest and Dynfaxi fra Rivendell.

Flowering Tress and Nari

One of the Japanese Flowering Cherry trees.

Flowering cherry and the old Apple tree. Blossoms are much prettier in person.

Equines taking a nap and if you look closely,, can see the flower petals drifting in the wind.


A carpet of fresh flower petals...


Nari being cute.








The Dance of the Cherry bloosms ~ Videos

As you can see... it was very nice the other day. The Japanese Cherry bloosms were drifting by in the wind.

Took a photo of Nari, DS and the cherry petals moving around in a flurry of wind.

The Garden ~

I know it is looking more like a dirt garden but things will grow an take over in time. Photos were taken a couple of weeks ago. Brussels sprout plants in front and planted my Artichoke in the pot to help protect it from the gopher...Crossing my fingers it will work.
Peas on the hog panels in the back.. then cauliflower, broccoli and three tiny bell pepper plants in front.

Bean poles... rustic ones again to add more character to the garden. LOL...
You can not see them here but both the bush and pole beans are coming up, too.
So the Kitchen garden is slowly getting there .

Coopworth fingering Yarn ~ Handspun



I now have both skeins of Coopworth Yarn finished. The size is "fingering" and is a Heathered Taupe in color, quite striking. Will have this yarn for sale on my Esty shop if anyone is interested. Because this does not have silk in it... is much cheaper.

Double Rainbow~

Everyone else has a "Pot O Gold" under their rainbows... look what we have. LOL
Can see the rainbow goes just about down to the very old Tractor.

Closeup

Early evening yesterday I had a feeling the weather was going to get bad, so I fed Stjarna early and I let DS know that it would be a good idea for him to get the other animals done early too. He of course...... did not listen. Just as I walk into the house the sky opens up like I have never seen it before on this side of the Country, wind gust so strong and came out of no where nearly made DS face plant himself into the ground... luckily Maggie was there to hold him up. He managed to get the chores done but now soaked to the skin, he comesback in the house and Thunder and Lightening start.
Once it all blew over and a tiny bit of sun shone through the clouds..we get this beautiful double Rainbow.


Rainbow was so big there was no way for me to get it all in one shot. If it wasn't lightly raining.. I would of tried to set the tri pod up and do a panoramic shot. Ah well.. maybe next time.

White Icelandic, Nari DS and the Tulips ...oh my.

DS was grooming Dyfra out for me the other day, so I could work on Stjarna. But I had to take a quick photo. Notice where his cat Nari is.. couple of years ago...Dyyfra would of been "IN" the tree. Now she doesn't mind...or associates the cat with getting groomed, so at least that cat is a good thing. LOL

You can see.. the Japanese flowering Cherries are finally blooming, they were really late this year.

Where Nari likes to be.... have no idea what she is thinking? Free ride...wants to get DS attention so she tap dances on his shoulders or??

DH Beautiful Tulips.... he picked the colors.


I had never seen Orange tulips... but now I have. Very bright and cheerful to say the least.
