Thankful Thursday




Thankful this Thursday that I will soon have this view to enjoy.  Looking at our old house from the barn, it gives a back row view of the garden.  

The grass is starting to grow and the chickens are loving it, not to mention the cows.  The lawnmower has been given the once over and is ready to go.  I can't say that Secret Agent Farmer Man is thankful for that......



"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows.  It's what the sunflowers do."  

Helen Keller


Linking up with Teresa today because there is a blurry fence in this shot .....

    1. Terri, I usually allow the birds to clean up the seed heads. They seem to love them.

  35. Here we are just a tad north of you and we are expecting snow showers tomorrow with a low Friday night of 20 deg. again. We do have greenery but we know not to get too excited. The maples are budding but fortunately not blooming. Love the picture.

  36. I;d love to see sunflowers every day like yours! Our grass is also slowly turning green We had 5 inches of snow yesterday but it all melted away, as it was in the 60's today.
