Trail ride, Mother's Day, and....... worms?

Ok.... so I have been taking lots of pictures to put on the blog but I keep running behind on getting them up! So I am going to do several different 'days' today.

Last Saturday I was finally able to go on a trail ride. The first one of the year! Can you believe it! Usually by this time of year I have already been on a dozen away from home trail rides. Not this year. The weather has not cooperated at all. Snow, mud, rain, mud, and oh yeah MUD. I went with a good friend of mine and we had a great time the horses where wonderful and the trails where pretty nice. Only a couple of muddy spots.
Here is a picture of Linda and her horse Tom. Now if I tried I could never have gotten that tree in the middle of her.LOL!!

Then her horse decided he was done and was going to unbridle himself.

And this is me and Max.

On to Mother's Day! We had wonderful weather for Mother's Day so I was able to get a lot of flowers planted and veggie garden looked after. Here is one of my whiskey barrels filled with flowers.

Can't wait for it to fill out!
Then I have two of these containers at the end of the walkway. I know... I know... they really need to be replaced but I just can't find ones I like as well. I am hoping that when these fill in you won't be able to see the awful container anymore.

What a wonderful bunch of radishes. They wher delicious!
And then Rob and I went fishing. We caught a lot of perch and then he finally caught one of his catfish!

Ok... are you wondering about the worms yet?
Well the last couple of days we have had a ton of rain. Today at work I was walking two horses out to the pasture and just happened to look down and had to stop and look twice!! I have never seen so many worms! I know the usually come to the surface after it rains but I have never seen a 'pool' of worms!

There must be thousands of them there! I hope the did not all die!

Well that is all for now! Have a great evening and wonderful tomorrow!


  1. Oh ho ho... look at all of that fish bait! If my chickens saw that I think they'd actually swim to get to all of those juicy tidbits! :)

    Looks like you had a great day!

  2. I thought about scooping some up for fishing but the where pretty skinny little worms. But I did not think about the chickens!! They would have loved that!!

  3. oh wow, that's kind of freeky (all of those worms!)! Your trail ride looks like so much fun. Spring is a busy time, isn't it?
