“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Good Light

Rain is on the way for the rest of the week....but today was around 50 and beautiful.
Before I went out for chores, the sun was beaming in on Sidney.

 Let the girls into the small pastures as with all the rain on the way they won't be able to go back there for a long time.

 When Angel and Maggie arrived I put a gate up at the end of Berlin's stall to create an aisle to the side door.  The way it is hung, it can enclose the stall or create a barrier when the door is open.  I can't believe that Berlin had this whole space before they got here.

 Today the electric company had all kinds of trucks in front of our farm trimming trees and brush.  The noise was so loud the dogs wanted to hide.
 I started moving mulch.  It will look so much better when the gardens are planted.

 This afternoon I decided to start mowing the lawn (at least until I ran out of gas).  First time this season and it sure looks a lot better.

 Gary was gone all day.  First Sara's, then to Apple Creek Farm to help Jack plant some grapes and finally to Jen's to watch the boys after school.  He got home a little after 6, just in time for dinner.

 Coleslaw, bbqued chicken and baked potatoes.
 No complaints here.
Out to do chores at 6:30.

 A nice evening.
 Night all.


  1. We are already tired of mowing around here :-/. Your place looks great!

  2. Looks like everyone enjoyed the sunshine today. Everything looks so pretty at your place.

  3. I agree - it looks fab!
    Hope you don't get too much rain.

  4. Great photos of life on the farm, as usual. It looks like spring! We are cold and very wet, it's been raining for 3 days, with snow falling this AM. Your scenery looks so much more inviting!
