Winter Rules

Howdy y’all. Ben here, with yet another field report, churned out between the sundry tasks on my list. Where did I put that list anyway? Finding it is probably going to involve a walk in the cold somewhere. That’s my thing that I do in winter. I walk around in the cold. I slept in […]

Hello readers! As I click-clack away our home is being serenaded by a bee swarm that has chosen a nearby branch to rest on just beside our east window. The hive has outgrown the home our neighbors made for them, and our beekeeping friends are now in scramble mode. It is a sight (and a […]

Visitors and Memories

Don’t know about you, kind reader, but I’m reeling from too many days in full-bore, too-much-to-do, holy-cow-autumn-is-approaching-WAY-too-fast mode… Tereza here, and it’s my turn again to regale you with stories from Dancing Rabbit Land, a wonderful place where the living is… well, perhaps not so much easy as it is meaningful.

Howdy y’all. This is Ben at Dancing Rabbit, reeling from one of my least favorite seasonal events: the temporal manipulation known as “Daylight Savings Time Ends.” I seem about as able to convince my daughter that she gets an extra hour of sleep as I am trying to tell the goat she doesn’t need to […]

Life is indeed full of cherries.

Dancing Rabbit

Ah, the confusion of spring weather! It seemed so clear in March that we were headed for an early, steady spring; but of course spring around here typically includes all sorts of weather swings, and up through this past week, the threat of a last frost lingered. We waited and waited to fill in the […]
