PEACOCK PHOTOS

    
Another amazing peacock photo from Winterpast Farm. You can bring grapes, kale, cereal, crackers and thin apple slices and the peacocks will eat from your hands. This is a male-you can tell from the blue neck and the copper colored feathers at the very bottom of the wings.

Live Nativity at Hayes Barton Baptist Church!

   
 Farmer Mary assumes the Live Nativity at Hayes Barton Baptist Church (see earlier posts for address) will go on tonight despite possible rain. Farmer Mary will be loading up some sheep and goats around 6 to take them to Raleigh. The donkeys spend the nights in a little barn on site.
