Some of the happenings, as I see it, on a dead end road, high up on a ridge, in southwestern Wisconsin.

Cows and sunflowers
Well, I guess you really can't see Jake pulling two wagons of hay back to the barn, but he is just starting up the driveway taking some grass hay from the neighbor's field up to the barn. Needed to know how to use the zoom.
This is all of our cows, but it is too far away. Maybe now I will learn to use the zoom on my phone camera. There is only one calf in the picture, and he looks like a white spot. So far we have six calves this year. They were born my favorite way.............you go out to the field and there they are.
Girls - 5, boys - 1. It is the first time we have had a ratio like that. They are all cute, red and white Hereford babies.
This is one of the volunteer, bird feeder sunflowers. The big leaves are courtesy of the cows. They lent their manure to growing that beauty. As you can see, the flower in the background doesn't have leaves like the one in the foreground, nor is the flower as big. Ahhhhhh.......the benefits of some good fertilizer.
