Farm visits...you have seen many of them on this blog.
This particular one, was unplanned, and came about when two little visitors paid
us an unexpected visit this week.
There is something comforting about visiting the farms. One feels close to nature,
and can experience on a first hand basis, different forms of elementary horticulture:)
There were the white daisies blooming in abundance.
The black-eyed Susan flowers overflowing through the white picket fence.
Fresh, huge, garden tomatoes...
...cucumbers, zucchini, and yellow summer squash...
...containers laden with mint garden tea, and bright green, tender lettuce leaves.
Giant sunflowers lined the steel fence row, lifting each of their heads to face the morning
A bonus for these two, was the acre or so of animals that created the petting zoo in front
of the big, white barn.
An artist's rendition of the bald eagles and the nest of their young, was carved in the
huge tree by the side of the pond.
And coin-operated animal food dispensors offered treats
for the abundance of ducks in the water below.
In watching the reactions from these two, one wondered to myself, if Disney could provide
any more excitement than gleaned from their blue eyes?
Thank you for stopping by today!
