Singin' in the rain

Yesterday, in the midst of dark, drizzly dampness, my favorite tree was making beautiful music:

Although I know they weren't singing about the rain, my husband and son did work in it yesterday, putting that new fork attachment to work mucking out the Ram-ada Inn. They didn't get it completely stripped (there was a LOT of build-up!), but they made great headway and pronounced the tool a success.

Yesterday in the comments, Mary Ann expressed surprise at our small acreage. Trust me, I'd love more – we just can't afford more! Still, I am very thankful for our little piece of heaven here. I think it looks  bigger because of our surroundings – and how I shoot my photos. For instance, in the photos above that I took this morning, the sheep are next to the fence which is our property line; those golden woods are not ours. I try to avoid including the neighboring houses in my shots; I think God's handiworks are generally so much lovelier than those of humans.

That's it for today, from . . .

How did Rick attach the fork to the tractor bucket? I have seen attachments for picking up rocks that can be bought for buckets, but I like the do it yourself aspect. I do have ripper bars for the scraper but bucket attachment would be more practical.

He drilled hole in the bars and the bucket so he can bolt it on and off.
