I’m Too Slow

Sometimes when you take pictures, you like to spend a lot of time getting just the right shot.

Sometimes when you take too long trying to get that shot, your subject catches someone else’s attention.

A Stroll in the Pasture Scavenger Hunt

Today’s topics for Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday are:  color, view, stroll, outfit, and blocks.

I am so excited that I got my old barnyard sneakers on.  It’s the first I’ve worn them as part of my outfit since the toe surgery.  Yeah, they might have had a few cobwebs on them.


I went outside, and there was a bright splash of color before I even got off my deck.  I bought a fall floral arrangement to use in my mini photo shoots at the end of the month.

Since I had those more sturdy shoes, I decided to take a stroll in the pasture.    The goats aren’t used to seeing me out there anymore.

These are just a few of the things I got to view out there today.

Finally, one of my favorite rocks out in pasture (I have quite a few favorites) is a conglomerate rock.  I love that it’s made up of so many stones as little building blocks.

I’m working hard to get caught up visiting people again.  I don’t know how I get so far behind, but I’m trying.

What’s Blooming

I do have a few flowers blooming around here.  I was afraid the mallow wasn’t going to survive the goats’ pruning this spring, but there’s a good crop.


This is stinking chamomile in my north paddock.  It’s been empty for about five weeks, so the grass (and weeds) is getting tall.


I have one little spiderwort that survived our extremely harsh winter.  Hopefully it will do well and multiply.


The tiger lilyl is from my ditch.


The sunflowers aren’t from my farm, but they’re pretty, so I included them.


What’s blooming in your neck of the woods?
