Farm Pictures

Hello! Is everybody ready to start a new week? As always, the weekend flew by around here! Today the Farm Kids and I spent a lot of time outside because it was sunny and 50 degrees, which is pretty much unheard of in January here! When we get a day like this we just can't pass up the chance to get out and soak it up! I got some pictures while we were out wandering around the farm, so I thought I'd share them with you today....
 We brought the rabbits out to play. Can you even tell this is a rabbit? They pretty much just look like a pile of fur.



The chickens seemed extra happy about the weather too!


It's awfully brown right now, but I still love it.


The SUN! 

Beautiful blue sky.


                                           



I really like the Sycamore trees, the contrast of the white bark and blue sky is gorgeous.

Waiting for the birds.


If you follow me on Facebook, you know that we found this guy in the chicken house tonight. (Oh, and if you don't follow me on Facebook yet, won't you come join us? It's fun!)  Our little opossum friend was quite angry about being evicted from the house before he had his chicken dinner!

I would love to go back out there for little stroll in the dark if I can find a little more time tonight, I don't want to miss any of this beautiful day! It makes me think of long walks on summer evenings...how many days is it until Spring?

Have a wonderful week!
