A Walk with Perty the Cat

So as y'all know, me and the cat, "Perty" enjoy taking walks around the farm. Perty is becoming my little farm buddy, she likes to follow me all over the farm. She tags along perfectly. 
Here are some photos from today's adventures: 

It just stopped raining so Perty and I decided to go outside and walk around the fields and the yard. While outside it began to rain again so I ran to the corn patch. I don't really know what I expected to accomplish since corn stalks are not the best shelter but it was better than nothing and I didn't feel like giving up on our little adventure yet. 


I looked around in the corn, 'Where is Perty?' 

That's when I saw her running back to the house to get out of the rain, "Perty!" 
She swung around as soon as she heard her name. She couldn't see me in the corn but she meowed a few times and it was almost like we were playing "Marco Polo: Cat Edition".  She finally found me and we waited out the rain in the corn. 


While we were stuck in the corn patch I decided to snap a photo of some corn I saw. Ha! You'd be amazed at how intriguing it is to someone like me to actually see food growing and developing right in the backyard. 


The rain finally stopped and Perty and I decided to resume our little walk by walking through the peanut field. Blossoms are beginning to form on the plants and with the honey bees being right across the road from our home, the plants are flourishing all over our yard... except for my poor rose bush. 😒


The rows may be a little crooked but I'm to blame for that one. When hubbs was planting I was on the tractor just a talking and then he looked back and went, "Ugh! Adrian! Shhh. Look what you made me do.." But don't they look pretty either way? 😂😍


Perty and I then walked to the chicken coop where I noticed our figs are starting to change to the brown color. (Is that how you would word that?) Because curiosity got the best of me I picked some off the tree and split them open. A couple was ready to eat and SO sweet! Some others were not so sweet and kind of bitter. I threw those to the chickens and then looked up how to tell when figs are ready to pick. 

I'm not much of a fig person but I can't help but try it. I mean, I've watched this tree since it was completely bare in the winter till now and it almost feels like I just have to try some figs, just because it's our tree. 


We also found some honeysuckle on our walk. I love honeysuckle. I love the smell of it and I love the taste of it. Honeysuckle is the sweetest tasting thing you'll ever have in your life. 
 I had always heard things about how it was sweet and you could actually taste it but I had never been shown how to. Heck, I thought you actually ate it. Haha! Thank God I didn't try that...

But then I asked my husband one day if he had ever tried it and do you actually eat the flower... after laughing a few minutes he finally showed me how you try honeysuckle. So I'll have to show y'all one day how honeysuckle nectar is eaten. 


Finally, when the walk was over I went back to my living room and Perty went back to her spot on our front steps. Back to the reality of being a wife and having wife duties to tend to. 

New adventures await us this weekend.
