Snow Day

Today was a snow day
for Ashland Public School,

that means, I didn't have to go to work so I decided to spend the gift of this day creating a journal for recording life on Bramble Creek Farm.
This in return is a gift to myself
and all those who love the memories of walking through the blackberries,
cedars, oaks and pines
that are nestled in the hollow of this
Wagner Creek valley.

wants to know
where the hay is

There were six wild ducks on the pond this morning. They did not fly away when I walked around the pond. Maybe we will have baby mallards this spring. Maybe these are returning ducks from previous summers.

The two surviving farm ducks.


  1. Mother, what a darling post. Oh! wouldn't baby wild ducks be just the cutest?

  2. Baby wild Canadian geese would be cute, too. We have had a Canadian geese couple hanging out at the pong for two weeks. Today they flew into the pond when Toby chased them. I am hoping that is a good sign that they are staying to build a nest.
