On my little foray outside on Saturday afternoon, I had some fun snapping everyday pictures of our farm. We've always had cattle, dairy cows for 25 years and now for the last 5 years, beef cattle. The animals have been such a big part of the farm but I don't have very many pictures of that part of our lives! Bob had just fed them so they were more interested in food than a photographer.
At the southeast corner of our home property, there is an artesian well and this old, old willow tree grows beside the spring. The sun was right behind the tree when I took this - kind of a cool effect, I think. See my little 'fun machine' at the side?!!
These are absolutely the biggest daffodils I have ever seen! They opened up to be so big and beautiful - I think each one would fill a teacup! On such a cold, windy and gloomy day, they radiate springtime and sunnier days ahead.
