March 2012

Blog: Garden of Ethan   -   Monday April 02, 2012   -   By Ethan

A set of twins March 12 and 2 sets on March 15 has been a lot of fun.  Rosemary rejected one of her girls, leaving me to bottle feed little Mia, who I named after Mia Farrow from the movie Rosemary's Baby.  Mia finds me in the yard and paws at my leg...

Mighty Quail

Blog: Re Rustica   -   Saturday April 11, 2009   -   By fullofbeans

Every morning, one of our neighbors (a nice couple of Quails) steps out for their promenade.  Mr. and Mrs. Quail live in our fence, which is not your usual barbed wire contraption.  It is a lean-to of large tree branches and small sticks, and...


Spectacular January

Blog: Wingshadows Hacienda   -   Saturday January 17, 2009   -   By Lynne & Bruce
