We had some pumpkin plants come up on their own in this summer's garden, in between our squash plants. Not the right time of the summer for pumpkins to be growing, but we left them there to see how well they would grow. A week or so ago we picked the pumpkins and brought them up to the porch. In the morning we found this praying mantis enjoying his breakfast on our newly harvested pumpkin.

Last night I was out filling the water buckets for the yaks and Boy came up. He waited patiently for the big blue bucket to fill, clean cold well water, worth waiting for. Slurped a little from the top, and then he dunked his nose in, all the way up to his eyes, while blowing the water out of his nose. Wish I had a video of that.Pin It Now!

Summer is here. It's been in the low 90's, not too hot, yet. The yaks have been staying in the shade more. Occasionally one will take extra measures to keep cool. Seems that Button decided that their drinking water might serve another purpose. Maybe we need to get a plastic kiddie pool and watch what happens.
