My Mom came out for a couple days to stay. They take holidays every year at the same time and always find a couple days to spend with us. The got here late the first night so we just made supper and sat around the fire, it was nothing big but sure enjoyable. the next day Neil had booked a tee time down in Duchess for him and Clint cause Clint Lives for golf in the summer (and bowling in the winter) and Neil enjoys it and with Sunnynook not open this year he hasn't got out much. While they were gone I took my Mom out on Bob for a tour of our place and to take some pics cause we both enjoy that. It was a lot longer tour than we thought, lol we just we getting home as Neil and Clint came home from golfing!
First we stopped at the dam down south and saw rosehips (lots!) and a pretty flower with purple stems and some kind of white daisy and what I was told are bullberry trees with no pokeys:
Then we headed to the creek going south and took some pics up top looking down, then saw a blazing star which we have tonnes of but didnt know what they were (thanks Linda), and a prickly pear cactus:
Then in the bottom of the creek we saw a bird on the other side, and coming up out of the creek were 2 barn swallows on a nest Neils Dad built, and another hawk on the fence post going North:
And we headed up to the neighbors place and he had an old seeder my Mom thought was pretty cool so she got her pic with it :)
The back to our place up North more looking into the creek, where we saw 2 deers and their fawns and the one who run up the hill by us :
Then out to the road we saw some antelopes and their babies, and an old weeder on the side of the road (my mom thought that was cool too, lol)
Then the next day my Mom wanted a tour in Neil's Grampa's old truck so he got it going and they went down the road and back, she thought it was too fun
We saw a lot of really cool things, most exciting was the fawn that ran up the hill and came out of the bushes less than 10 feet from where we were standing! Neither of us got a picture we were too stunned. It always seems so short a visit but always a good time.
