The Micro.blog photo challenge word for day 30 is “discovery” (suggested by @matthewlang). I noticed the filler valve for the small pond was running non-stop, so likely leaking by overflowing the liner. Looking under a tree, I made a discovery, and fixed it. 📷 #mbaug

The Micro.blog photo challenge word for day 26 is “relentless” (suggested by @poetalegre). I can’t think of anything more relentless around the homestead than bamboo. I recently cut this grove to the ground, and it keeps on sprouting new stalks. 📷 #mbaug

The Micro.blog photo challenge word for day 20 is “change” (suggested by @mitch), so I thought I’d combine that and Throwback Thursday to look at some changes in the homestead over the past seven years — 2013 vs 2020. 📷 #mbaug #ThrowbackThursday

The Micro.blog photo challenge word for day 14 is “among” (suggested by ronguest). At the back of our pond is an old defunct birdhouse slowly getting subsumed amongst the ivy. 📷 #mbaug

Micro.blog is doing a photo challenge for August. The word for today is “up” (suggested by @LJPUK). Today I trimmed a bunch of branches; here I’m looking up at a sagging branch of the big tree by the chicken coops. 📷 #mbaug
