Springtime at the farm


Photo 52, Week 18:  Photographer's Whim

It was my whim (and my kids' day off from school)
that took us to visit my friend Peggy and her family at the farm.

Farm 9

We had been there in every season but spring, so it was time.
The rain had brought green (and a little mud, perhaps).

Animals 4

And of course the animals.
Always animals.

I love Peggy's kitchen.
There is a special kind of "inviting" about a place 
where the food is all home grown.

Maggie's Tea Party

The spaces inside are as engaging as outside.
A girly room.

Boys 6

The "man cave".
Complete with the deepening voices of the young men
who introduced us as very little boys 
at swimming lessons.


I have loved following Peggy's story.
She has had to adjust a lot of expectations
in order to live close to the earth.
She's being transformed.
So am I.

"And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory
are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory,
which comes from the Lord, who is the spirit."
2 Corinthians 3:18

And soon, the farm will be transformed once again,
when all that's been dormant bursts into glorious life.

Peggy and Me

Look, the sheep is giddy just thinking about it.

What a zoo!

You know how I love my zoo, right?


This is a great time to visit because:

 It is always warm on the tropics trail.
And the day I went was pretty nice outside too.


There is lots of cuteness with all the new babies.
But when they introduce a new camel on a "hump day"?
It just doesn't get any better!

Zoo Quad

Hopefully I will catch a few more of the little ones soon.
(And, MAYBE I will get around to posting about it.
But you never know these days.)

Birds square quad

I think I have summer brain already.
It's for the birds!
