My Evening Walk

27 Apr

We’re in the midst of a much needed rainy spell.


SOOC for Blue Monday

That’s a good thing.  It’s helping the pasture to grow.  I also found some blossoms on a rogue cherry bush.  It’s not easy to photograph them in gale force winds though.

Every evening, weather allowing, I enjoy walking in the pasture.  It’s a bonus when I can get the Scavenger Hunt Sunday items in walk.  This week the words are:  bubbles, jump, pajamas, blur, and chalk.  Since we had quite a bit of rain this afternoon, the ditch was full, and I even found some bubbles.

The extra water meant it was necessary to take a big jump to get over the ditch.  Litha’s quads demonstrate their perfect technique.

Ricky didn’t have quite the same success.  I guess we’ll chalk this up to his inexperience.  Next time, I’m sure he’ll do better.  Is it me, or does it look like his brother Reggie is making fun of him?

We had some dramatic clouds left in the sky.  The blur of the leafless trees make it look even more ominous.  At least, I think so.

Finally, you’ll have to use your imagination.  I think it looks like some kids might have on their fuzzy pajamas.


Really.  That’s the best I could do.

I’m also sharing with Mosaic Monday.

    Great (!!) shots of the goats jumping over that stream! They look like they’re delighted to be alive!

      And they should! They love racing around back there!

      So far it has been windy, but no damage on my property; although, I know at least one tree went down near my mom’s house.

    Great pics.

    They do, indeed, look quite happy to be jumping around! The scenic shots are just awesome.

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 6:48 am #

      Thanks. They love it back there, and I do live in a beautiful place!

    Great job with the shots. The jumping kids are great. The pajama shots work for me!

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 6:49 am #

      Thanks. Sometimes I have to be a bit overly creative to make all the shots work for the farm. 🙂

    I love the cherry blossoms. I’m glad you got some rain. We would need some too.

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 6:49 am #

      Thanks. Hope you get some rain soon.

    Enjoyed seeing those jumping goats. They look so cute in action. And the blossoms are delightful.

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 6:50 am #

      Thanks, Gemma. They are a lot of fun to watch!

    Enjoying every photo. Most love the jumping shots.

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 6:51 am #

      Thanks. They are a lot of fun to watch racing around back there.

    The look on Reggie’s face is one of ‘disdain.’
    The quad-jump is so ‘symbolic’ (in a quad photo panel). Did you plan it that way?

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 6:50 am #

      Never even made the connection. LOL

  12. Stewart M April 28, 2014 at 7:12 am #

    That blue-greay says nothing but rain – it’s a colour that makes for good images.

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne

      Those dark skies really make all the colors more vibrant!

  13. Sarah ~ Magnolia Surprise April 28, 2014 at 8:15 am #

    Great shots –the little jumpers are so cute! Yep, your pj’s shot reminds of those zip up one-piece jammies that my kids wore! (Now your kids are wearing them LOL!)

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 8:26 am #

      With the damp weather, they were all fuzzy last night. 🙂

  14. Sally April 28, 2014 at 8:29 am #

    Hi Teresa,

    That blue sky sure is intense. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed watching the kids go through their exercises. I hope Ricky is ready for his next try!

    I’m looking forward to reading your comment on my blue truck wash post. Please come back.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 9:02 am #

      It really was an dark blue. Luckily, we haven’t had the severe weather some places have.

  15. Pat April 28, 2014 at 8:47 am #

    That sky looks threatening – or promising, depending on how you look at it. Those little jumpers in fuzzy pajamas are so cute.

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 9:12 am #

      Luckily for my area, it was good. We got much-needed rain, but it wasn’t severe.

  16. Mary April 28, 2014 at 9:12 am #

    Absolutely wonderful shots! So lovely!

  17. Laura Hegfield April 28, 2014 at 9:52 am #

    I love leaping goats and the beautiful blossoms… all so joyful! Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 10:16 am #

      Thanks, Laura! Hope you have a fantastic week.

  18. Karen S. April 28, 2014 at 10:16 am #

    Love these guys!

  19. Jeanne April 28, 2014 at 12:21 pm #

    I was impressed with the bright green of that grass! Love the leaping pix! Too bad one isn’t named Lena – could’ve been Leapin’ Lena! Love the fuzzy jammies too. I immediately thought of my grandpup, a Shih Tzu whose markings are such that from the rear he looks to be wearing dark pants! One of his nicknames is Punkin’ Pants! Have a great day!

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 12:24 pm #

      I love that nickname, Punkin’ Pants! So cute!

  20. Hannah April 28, 2014 at 1:17 pm #

    Great shots of the jumping goats, how brave they are! The pajama shot is very cute too. It’s great you are getting some rain, we are getting more than we need now which keeps me from getting my gardening done.

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 1:20 pm #

      Hope you get some better weather. Those kids have no fear!

  21. Karin M. April 28, 2014 at 3:09 pm #

    Great shots, really wonderful ….
    My compliment for these fantastic shots.
    Love greetings, Karin

    • Teresa April 28, 2014 at 3:17 pm #

      Thanks so much, Karin!

  22. jesh stg April 29, 2014 at 2:35 am #

    love your first pic – the sky looks almost unreal! I wish I cold jump like your kids:)

    • Teresa April 29, 2014 at 6:50 am #

      They are quite talented! They could be track and field stars!

  23. abrianna April 29, 2014 at 10:29 pm #

    Love the jumping kid shots. The leafy trees do make a good blur in the sky. Lol at the pajamas shot!

    • Teresa April 30, 2014 at 7:32 am #

      Kids are perfect for pajama shots, but these are the only little kids I have around anymore. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
