Bindi and Phantom two of the barn cats found their way to the house. Now I cant get them to go back and they are really becoming a danger to the squirels and birds I have in the garden. The birds are very important for insect control on the farm as well as they are beautiful. Their songs are beautiful and they are an important part of a healthy eco system. Anyone have any suggestions to keeping barn cats in the barns and pastures and away from the house? We have cat food and litter boxes in the barn. #paradise #onthefarm #barncats #jaxthegiantpoodle #friends #atplay #pond #1800sSugarpot #Sugarpot #pond #cat #cats #barncats #kitty #kittycats #mousehunters #ontheriver

Tidays treasure hunt! Found a box of depression glass in the basement from the 30-40s it is Anchor Hocking Royal Ruby Glass Baltic Series. Bonus find it was wrapped in @houstonchron July 10th 1964 paper. How fun is that!! I washed it all up and put it in the old china cabinet. Saving the paper for maybe a Deca podge. 😊 #treasurehunting #treasures #vintagedishes #depressionglass #RoyalRudyGlass #AnchorHocking #antiques #thisoldhouse

Iam holding Rose in my arms for this video because she was at her limit for treats!! Go to our Story to see Rose at the party, the birthday girls put wings on her so she could jump from the couch to the ottoman. Lol Everyone had a great time, great socialization for the piggies who are all available to piggy lovin homes. They are really attention hogs! Snow and Pricess will both be 1 year old next month and Rose is going on 7 months. Fully vetted, socialized and loving like no others. These are some great piggy pets! ❤❤❤❤ #pig #pigs #piggy #piggies #piglet #piglets #pigsofinstgram #instapigs #minipig #teacuppig #micropig #nanopig #littlepig #petpig #piggykisses #piggyplaydate #piggysnuggles #pigtures #petiteporkers #piggypedicure #attentionhogs

Its 2am and this poor bird is desperately trying to find a mate. All alone in the world and with noise pollution day and night, he may never find a mate. 😢 birds are not usually vocal after sun set they usualy find and court mates in tge daylight but due to noise pollution they can not hear each others love songs. Birds more and more have to resort to late night cortships or give up all together. 😔 Can anyone tell me the type of bird this is? He sings his sad songs every night and if I knew his name maybe I could be his wing man...and plant seed/plants or put out feeders to attract him a girl friend. 😉 #bird #birds #birdcalls #birdsong #birdsongs #birdcall #matingsong #courtshipsong #soundpolution #lightpolution #ecosystem #wildlife #stopthemadness #openyoureyes #gobacktonature

So after lugging this monstrous sectional with a hide a bed on one side and 2 recliners on the other. Meaning its heavy as hell... oh and the ancient couch that was here when we moved, that we have been using is plaid! Its also an extremly heavy hide a bed as well. Its not that big , it only seats two. I went to move it however and it said "NO!" lol well after all the furniture moving the sectional does not fit in the house. 😭 #onthefarm #moving #movingtroubles #furniture #hideabed #sleepersofa #doyoulift #lol #furniture #itdoesntfit

Did you know that the entire magnolia tree is edible and medicinal? Magnolias make wonderful fresh cut flowers. They will add charm, elegance and fragrant to any arrangement. The flowers will last about a week in a vase.The attractive dark green leaves are often used in both fresh and dried floral arrangements and wreaths.The fragrant magnolia is a popular ingredient in floral perfumes.The flowers can be used to make essential oil. Magnolia essential oil is used to calm nerves and can act as an aphrodisiac.The seeds are food for birds, squirrels and other small animals.The blossoms of the Magnokia are edible, typically as a pickle. For some, the taste can be intense and somewhat spicy; at first, use the pickled petals sparingly to flavour salads and other dishes.The leaves of the Magnolia can be used like bay leaves to flavour soups and stews. However, the entire leaf will be too much for one recipe; cut up the leaf before using.The bark and flower buds of the magnolia are used in traditional Chinese herbal medicine. The bark is known to contain antidepressant properties and is used to relieve anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. The bark is also used to treat menstrual cramps, nausea, and indigestion. Magnolia is grown commercially for its lumber. The wood is dense and heavy, which makes it ideal for furniture, doors and cabinets.In parts of Japan, leaves are used to wrap food. #forage #wildedibles #edibleplants #medicinalplants #magnoliatree #tree #backyard #medicineinyouryard #magnoliatea #pickledmagnolia #antidepressant #Aphrodisiac
