Rain Respite

I know cloudy, dreary days drag most people down, but I don't mind them one bit. I also love when the sun peeks out for a few minutes too, though ;-).  


A rainbow cloud for Linda :-).


The purple butterfly bush in the background deserves a big round of applause.  That poor thing barely made it through last winter only to have Baaxter try to gobble up every tiny shoot as it tried to recover in the spring.  It now has a protective fence around it and is blooming big :-).


Not many spiders left, but this one sure picked a pretty location.  There are still two spiders left on the garage and lots and lots of egg sacks for next year :-).


A few blooms down, but plenty still to come.  I love that the bricks look like they've been there forever.


Ewen, McTeagle - a giant among Jacobs :-).


Heading back in.  Love the placement of the sun spot and freshly washed look of the barn lot.


And a slight turn to the right out of the direct sun.  That is actually Renny standing next to Hank. The Spud pictures came a few minutes later.

Another excellent set of shots! Love the sky, the flowers, the spider and web, the sheeps, Hank, and, happy sigh, the perfect sunspot......

:-)

Oh how I wish I could visit in person - but at least with your wonderful photography, I can still enjoy the beauty all around your amazing home.

Judy said...

What a peaceful grouping of photos!! Thanks so much for sharing them with us.

Either you need to make more calendars or find a way to add more months to the year.

The spider capture is stunning!!!

I didn't realize the Ewen was a Jacob. Gosh ! Where are his spots?
The sheep in the sun spot remind me of kids lining up after recess!!

I don't mind the cloudy days, or the rain. Your photos are lovely, and I'm glad someone's butterfly bush made it through the winter and this growing season. Mine unfortunately did not -- There's always next year!

Borage is one of my favorite plants. I think that it's blue is one of the truest blues in nature, and I love the little white center in the flower. It looks very happy!

Ewen is a Hamp/Suffolk cross. He's just standing in the midst of some Jacobs ;-).

I love the blue of borage too :-).

Valerie said...

What a gorgeous spot of heaven. =) As always love your photos.
Blessings,

Oh, that last photo makes me homesick for Equinox Farm! How can one be homesick for a place only visited once? Because it is such a wonderful place, obviously.

I love the aged brick too - and the borage cascading over the edge of the barrel planter gives me an idea for growing one in a pot over the edge of my deck.

Sara...love the different views of your property in these shots. First time I have had such a clear look at the front of the barn and the wool house. Beautiful.

Beautiful photos of your land. Don't you just love autumn? I don't mind a rainy day here or there either, it's a great reason to stay inside and knit.
Have a great weekend.

Susan Mckee-Nugent said...

Funny, I hadn't thought of Jacobs as Small! Love the pictures, of course!

thecrazysheeplady said...

They're not. Ewen is huge :-).

Terry and Linda said...

Finally I'm getting caught up...THANK YOU SO MUCH for the rainbow cloud! We have had so few rainbows this year, although we have had lots of rain!

Your countryside is beautiful...always!

Linda
