Finally some WARM weather, perfect for sitting on the porch swing.
Can you spot Mr King Snake? I saw him while I was chatting on the phone with Deborah. I thought at first it was a snake skin but then I realized he was moving! We do not kill the king snakes as they feast on mice and they will kill and eat venomous snakes. Marvin saw three snakes this weekend. Non poisonous. This year it seems that copperheads are plentiful so I want the King Snakes to hang around and take care of those bad boys.
The cows were enjoying a nice day under the shade trees. One new baby calf was born while we were there. They are so sweet.
On Saturday we traveled to Ellijay, Georgia so I could have lunch at my favorite restaurant, Cantaberry's. Located on the square, it is a neat place to eat and people watch. I thought we would have to wait for a table due to social distancing, the restaurants cannot seat a lot of people at one time. However we walked right in.
After lunch I visited my favorite soap store, Green Willow Soaps. I picked up quite a selection. Earlier in the day we visited Panorama Orchard. The store was not open for shopping but you could place your order and they brought it to the door where you paid. We got Apple Cider, Apple Cider donuts ( for Amelia), Apple Butter and an Apple Pie to share with my family on the porch Saturday evening. Instead of a cake, I had a birthday pie.
Coming home we drove across Fort Mountain, instead of going around the mountain. It had probably been 40 years since I had been on that road. I was surprised to see the number of private residences there these days. We can see some houses from our vantage point in the valley. I am glad Marvin was driving as it was very curvy!
We pulled over at a scenic overlook for some pictures.
It was a beautiful day...clouds were so pretty.
Our farm is down in the valley.
Mountains all around.
This picture of Cousin Scott's shows the mountain we were riding across.
