Scenic Spring Sunset

One of the many wonderful things about our farm is that I can just step off of the front porch and everything is right there in front of me.



With the warmer weather comes nightly walks and some incredible scenery.



When we lived in the city a nightly walk meant keeping on the sidewalk and staying out of the road.



Now it means staying out of the briars and taking my camera with me....and the dogs.

  6. Your header photo took my breath away. We have meadows like that in Sweden and it reminded me of a place I love so much. Your views are stunning too.--Inger

  9. Hi Farmchick, These are some beautiful shots. You have a wonderful place there. I'm enjoying your blog and also appreciate you stopping by mine and leaving me kind comments. Thank you! On our posts today, our pictures are a lot different, but I think the thought is similar ... take time to appreciate the beauty that's all around us. Hope you have a great day! John

  13. Okay I know our country walks are far from one another but I can totally connect with this. I LOVE walking right outside my front door and feeling, breathing and seeing the peacefulness of the country!

  16. Such a wonderful Blessing! We live in town, but go to the farm as often as we can. {about 5 miles away} Our grandkids love being able to run and walk down the old dirt roads, feed the cows and donkeys, and just have fun being a kid. I always enjoy your pictures...
    Oh....and Isn't it nice to breath in the fresh air?

  30. I look forward to coming here everyday. Your pictures take me away to a beautiful place. But I really enjoyed your Circus post too. Something about kids and the circus (even the big kids).

  32. You are showing us plenty of the downsides of living in teh city. Nothing of this is even remotely possible in town....

    ReplyDelete
  33. wow...such gorgeous scenery. My former city walks on sidewalks had their interesting moments, but, like you, I would rather have country walks. You and your daughter look so cute with your clown noses!

  34. Oh my gosh! The shot with the old pasture fence is to die for! It makes me want to be there!!!!

  35. Hello neighbor! Okay, we're not exactly rubbing elbows, but at least we can say we are state neighbors.

    We live in Knoxville, but we grew up in southern WV. That's country life now and we love visiting our families whenever possible.

    Our dreams are one day to move outside the city, but remain close enough to have the conveniences within reach which spoil us. =D

  36. I came over here from Willow Manor. I love the "feeling" I get at your blog. Your photo reminds me so much of my friend Arlene! I will have to take a picture of her and post it to you. I think you would be amazed at the similarity! Nice to meet you!

  39. LOVE it when you can see the sun light finger out through the clouds. It's like you can see God's touch in all that is beautiful.
