Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

I really don't know what these large moths are--I've always thought of them as mock hummingbirds. They look very much like a hummingbird, in the way they flit around, and the way they are made.They usually come out around dusk, and are quite frenetic in their activity. The Four O'clocks seem to especially draw them.If anyone knows what these insects are, I'd be interested in hearing their proper name and history.
