On the right, seven bales of "sheep & Larry hay"
In the middle, the remaining certified weed-free hay for horse-camping
On the far right, a small stack of valley hay
|Lambies three on halters be|
Since the sheep don't think their pasture contains anything appetizing, I usually have to halter and lead them all to get them where I want them to go during the day. While a bit labor-intensive, it helps in halter-training the lambs and gives everyone else a regular "refresher course."

The chickens are on summer break, apparently; two eggs in one day (from EIGHT hens) is cause for celebration. :-/ You can see July's pathetic tally over there on the right. I could understand this if we were suffering from the extreme heat that much of the rest of the country is experiencing, but we aren't. Humph.
We do have flowers; the daylilies are showing off now, my astilbe are revealing their assorted colors for the first time since I planted them a year ago, and the Centaurea continue to bloom. I noticed this pink flower among the self-seeded starts:
I'm thinking the blue and white varieties I purchased (you can see them in the background) cross-pollinated!
