*Reminder: These photos are usually one of my favorite view photos from the preceding week, usually not taken the same day of the posting. If you were trying to track my whereabouts by these Sunday posts, it would be tough.
Be still my heart.
So many colors!
We understand each other.
We’re soul mates, I think. They take me to my happy place.
The barn swallows sat still for a half of a second – see them on the wire above? So many of them were swooping in and out of the feed barn that it looked like we walked into a Disney movie.
I present you with the rare earless alpaca:
Just kidding. Back to my happy place…
One of my top four favorite days of the year is the Boone County Farm Tour. Our first stop this year was to farm #5, Broken M Farm.
The tour is free, lasts all day, is well mapped, and has lots of animals – including LAMBS.
These particular two needed to be bottle fed and were handed off to a lady looking to get into the business. I’m not sure what business she thought she was getting in to, but she raised these two like puppies – they even arrived to the festivities late because they needed a bath, to get all fluffed up! They were still damp when we were encouraged to pick them up (one of the perks of arriving early):
Lamb kisses. Swoon.
Alas, sheep farmers are not sheep photographers and the photo of our epic good fortune turned out fuzzy…
A parting query: how many sheep do you think are in this last photo?
No. You’re probably wrong. We have it on good information that there are over 120 sheep here!
We got our strawberries this summer on a whim. I knew last weekend was in the middle of the three-week picking season, but after lunch and (a morning 5k walk for a great cause), we decided to drive up north and get some berries.
The fields were full and we had some competition. Problem: do you pick where everyone else is picking because that’s where the best berries are, or do you pick an empty spot and assume they’re not picked over? Sigh.
Yes, we’re wearing matching shirts. Our team color at the Walk for Wishes was green!
