The life and times on a lavender farm in Texas.

Mockingbird came to visit

Category: Farm Animals | Posted: Sun Apr 13, 2008 5:44 pm

Today a I got a photo of a common visitor we have around Purple Ranch. Those of you who know about mockingbirds, you know that if they have a nest they will do anything short of calling out the military to protect their nest. Today I got this shot and came out unscathed. How fortunate for me. Until next time. Lavender Up!

Purple Ranch Twin Terrors

Category: Farm Animals | Posted: Sat Apr 05, 2008 7:44 pm

The newest additions to the Purple Ranch Family are a couple of dogs we call the twin terrors. A brother and sister combo weighing in at 45 and 50 pounds. Part Blue Healer, Australian Shepard, Lab and a 3rd degree in Hulk Hogan gonna put a hurt on ya. Rolo and Hope can be seen practicing herding techniques down the rows of lavender. Don't get in their way. They will run over you and not even notice. Recently Rolo made a visit to the Vet to have some business taken care of. He came home with a fashionable white cone around his neck converting our once lovable puppy into a 50 pound wrecking ball. It was like watching an old pinball machine, Rolo being the ball, hitting every bumper, in this case every tree in the yard. Fun stuff. Until next time. Lavender Up!
