A Walk Through the Barn Yard


How's this for a farm scene? Courtesy of the cell phone.


My sunbathing hens.

The New Pig Palace.
Spring is trying hard to take hold. The grass is greening up and the maples have their red halo on. 
The garden is being readied for the early plants and spring cleaning and refreshing is in full swing indoors. There is a deck to paint and a garden shed to build. Ovens to replace and seedlings to transplant to roomier homes. Curtains to make and flannel sheets to put into hibernation. Perennial gardens to weed and mulch and dinners for the elders to be made for when I am cityside. Summer bulbs to place in the warming soil and the next wave of fruit trees to join them. Perimeter fencing to repair and rain barrels to work up. 
And still I dream with a smile at what is to come.
My mind and heart were made for this life. 
{My girly weak muscles and short bones could use some help}.
I savor every moment of it.

I love the farm scenes...I need to do several of the spring things you mention. But I don't have flannel sheets...just like the coolness of plain sheets, even in winter.

These are great farm scenes and fences. It's wonderful you enjoy the farm life (I'm more a city gal) but I do admire those who live a farming lifestyle.

Love the farm pics . . . and hearing about "your chores!"
Busy, busy days make for a happy gal when having a chance to play!

I was amazed at the size of that one tree! Huge trunk . . . Oak or Maple? I bet some old trees around the farm.

Springtime is wonderful, isn't it!
