These are our resident Muscovy ducks. Ugg and Cherry Pie.
She is, as they say "last year's duck"; the surviving duck of her
mama "Peaches" and Ugg. The lucky one of the brood of 18.
She is dropping eggs now, but does not have the smarts of her
mama to sit on them yet. As soon as she does, we will have
the enjoyment of seeing wild ducklings in 35 days.

The daffodil patch is open in Pelham, just down the mountain.
My wonderful friend is younger than Springtime, in spite of her 90 plus years.
The daffodils are for picking and sale; either 2 cents or 5 cents a piece.....don't be greedy.
This patch was originally planted during the Great Depression (1930's) and has been lifting spirits ever since.

The Mountain Goat Trail Alliance (MGTA) has been awarded a $317,000 grant from the State of Tennessee’s Project Diabetes program to construct a three-mile portion of the trail and to support health initiatives in Grundy County.
Thanks to the Project Diabetes grant, our Go Grundy Campaign to connect Monteagle and Sewanee is one huge step closer to fruition. We are also excited to partner with the Grundy County Health Council on programs for people of all ages to promote healthy behavior, including using the Mountain Goat Trail for regular exercise.

The Butterfly dance is in full force. They are everywhere and this
is the year of the bee balm flower. I have bee balm flowers planted at the cottage,
in numerous gardens and even at our front porch. It's like an international airport, with take offs
and landings of butterflies and attractive moths.
Next available week-end is August 5th and 6th. Book now and enjoy
the cooler mountain air and the authenticity of a country summer week-end.
