Flashlights

Flashlight stand!  Kwesi built this for the house.  Flashlights are a big part of our lives...  The power goes out quite frequently and if we are walking around when it's dark out, the flashlights come in handy! Before, we kept them all over the place so it's nice to...

Sunrise – winter time

Winter time sunrises are often so beautiful!  Since the sun rises so much later, we catch at lot more of them! The moon was out the other day and while the picture isn't awesome, you can get an idea of how pretty it was! Living on the farm, sometimes we have to pinch...

White Rooster

This is our mystery rooster!  He's white. The mother hen and rooster were both buff orpingtons.  The female chicks all looked like buff orpingtons!  However, the rooster always stood out! He's a beautiful rooster today and we sometimes laugh when we look at him.

And now it’s winter

And now it’s winter

Here's a photo from about the same location as the fall photos!  It always seems like winter arrives overnight... We've had about 16 inches of snow so far this year!  It's melting at the moment as it's above zero... We've had several nights of -25C and everything in...

Extreme Weather 2019

The weather in 2019 felt extreme...  It snowed until the middle of June, rained most of the summer with cool temperatures, and got very cold by the end of September (-15C).  It also hailed many many times. We looked at the Alberta Agriculture weather statistics. ...
