Seasons on the Farm

I scanned some photos today and had this idea to post photos of our farm in all seasons. Since it's winter here I'll start with that season....

No, we don't have this much snow right now...the lawn is bare again today...but no doubt we'll end up looking like this before winter's over. Remember the Christmas of 2002 all you North Easterners out there?

Alas, soft spring sunshine and pastel flowers are a long way off yet, but we can dream.....

Summer is the best of all in my opinion! Every day we can spend outside in the sunshine (or even light showers) is a gift! Lovely warm sunshine and shady trees. With the flowers come the butterflies and hummingbirds. Sitting on the porch, watching the world go by and smelling the flowers.....heaven!

Fall is such a beautiful season in this part of the country....

Hope you're all enjoying your day.

All I can do at the moment is - gasp!!! The colours, the memories, the beauty, the sheer joy of being back in the country - is almost more than I can take in.

I'll now go back and do a little more drooling ... Thanks, Kerri, for allowing us to visit your lovely home.

A big wave to Ross on the tractor, too.

I've been soaking up your farm - look outside, see I've soaked up all the snow and the autumn leaves, and the flowers. I'll know where to come for leaves for my compost next autumn, won't I?

Your white house must nearly 'disappear' in heavy snow. What is the big round 'thing' in the second photo, or does Kylie just make brilliantly round snowmen?

The hyacinths, daffodils, foxgloves and all the other flowers, together with the 'green, green grass of home' and the blue of the sky and fluffy white clouds make a dream landscape. Still, even with all of that, you probably don't mind the approach of autumn with a vista as glorious as that to feast the eye upon.

The photos are beautiful Mum! Once more you're a step ahead of me- I was just trying to figure out how to scan photos and get them to come up on my blog.
Hi Alice! That's me with the snow shovel, (amazing that you recognized me- I thought it was Kathleen for a minute,) and I'm standing next to the picnic table.

No you're not Kylie. That's no picnic table. How could you forget that you were about to shovel all that snow off Kathy's car?!!!Remember? It was totally and completely buried. Haven't seen it happen before or since. That was quite a snowstorm. The roads were closed and we were snowed in. It was rather cozy actually and you two girls had to stay another night...we watched movies. Fun :)

And there's that very photogenic post and rail fence again. I just love the way it is the perfect "prop" for the different flowers you plant around it.

So why didn't I make Kathleen shovel out her own car? That seems very sweet of me...
I do remember being snowed in and watching the movies, that was fun.
