Same Trees, Different (Time Of) Day

A rainbow for Linda at Life on a Colorado Farm :-D.



This is the same rainbow as above, just a different angle.  I love how it's arcing over the barn to the sheep.


Or to the barn...depending on where you're standing.


Poor Baaxter, he's been without his beloved jungle gym/tree fort/rocket ship* for over a week.  It's been a long, sad week for a heartbroken little lambie.  As soon as I pulled into the paddock, up he jumped, much relieved.


And even happier when the Gilbert was out of his way.  Yes, our mower has a first name.  And a last name, Brown.  Gilbert Brown was a heavy duty Green Bay Packer - The Grave Digger - and this farm would fall apart without him.  And Baaxter's trailer ;-).

*Yes, Woody did finally figure out how to jump on the trailer, but after the initial fun wore off, the three New Yorkers completely lost interest.  Not Baaxter!  He loves that trailer.

You sure do have a beautiful farm and the photos are great.

You go, Baaxter! Enjoy "your" jungle gym while you can. I love the composition of the rainbow photos over the field. Hope you're having a great day. I'm back in Tanzania now and back on Blogger! Greetings, Jo

i always wanted to live in a farm, have cows and sheeps, grow my vegetables. Why didn't I do it? I don't know. You pictures are wonderfully serene, I'm very happy I found you. I'll keep my hopes high that one day I'll have my own little farm. Have a great week!!

I just spit my coffee out when I saw him on the trailer in the first picture! lol love it. Perfect way to start my morning (well at least a distraction from my screaming 5 year old, tonsil surgery sucks!)

That Baaxter is such a handsome laddie. Boys do love their machinery, don't they? No matter what the species. The pictures of the rainbow are so lovely.

I feel so blessed to have seen a rainbow the one day I visited. Beautiful rainbow photos. Darling Baaxter photos :-)

All boys love toys don't they. Looking at all your pictures of the pastures tells why the song is about the green, green grass of home.

Baaxter cracks me up! So much personality!

I love your photos of your farm and animals. It brings back such strong and wonderful memories of growing up in a beautiful farm area of Georgia. I live in SD now--a very different kind of beauty of landscape, but your pictures evoke 'true' home for me, so thank you.
Would you, at some point, post a picture of the beautiful artwork on your barn? I would bet that it's in your blog somewhere, but I'm a relatively new follower. The glimpses you've included lately have intrigued me.

Sadly it doesn't look like I've done much on the barn quilt and now it's so ratty and peeling and covered in bird poop that I'm not sure I can get a good picture anymore :-(.

Here's a link to what the design was based on. I'll try to do a Frog Pond and barn quilt post in the next few days before it gets any worse!

That first picture, the line of 7 tress, that is an interesting picture (well, all of them are:-)!), but those tress are quite photogenic:-). You inspire me to improve my photography skills.

Ha, ha, a lawn mower with a name:-). The rat snake that comes to sun bathe in one of my flower beds, right in front of the main entrance to the house (I actually think he lives there, in the soil beneath the bed), has a name also. I call him Martin.

Someone else was in love with this trailer...perhaps it is a lambie phase:)
