Sunday Stillness

We got up this morning, well, Bullwinkle got up this morning, went out to graze with Baba in the barely light, came back in and woke me up at 6:00, we went to the house for babas (small 'b' is bottle, big 'B' is Blossom, plural babas means I got coffee ;-) and cereal and then happily went back out to the barn.  I took these pictures on the quiet, lonely walk back to the house.  

The light was perfect so I grabbed my camera from the barn.  I missed the best of the light (the sun rises quickly), but these are not too bad.  Early mornings are about the only thing I enjoy about summer.  Well, lightning bugs.  And purple martins.  Barn swallows and bats.  Lavender blooming.

....I thought I was on a roll there, but that seems to be the end of my list ;-).

Hank came out to make a yard loop this morning, but stopped when I stopped, but never took his eyes off his sheep.

......the green of the rolling hills, the misty effect of the dew on the grass......

I just thought I would add to the list, but I'm right there with you about (mostly miserable) summer..... and maybe my additions to the list are really more about your photos. 😊

Your farm is just so beautiful. I can only imagine how peaceful and lovely it is in those early morning hours.

Oh Hank, I wish you could be immortal....

Love your short summer list! ;-)

I know. It's unfathomable :-(.

The morning fog is a good addition!

I really wish I was a morning person when I see such lovely pics and think that I could have a couple extra hours to work..... Just not wired that way. Beautiful Hank! He's so regal! And he crosses his paws like Holly!

Now that's what I call perfect pastures. You sure take good care of them.

Hey, what about home-grown tomatoes and corn, not to mention August's mid-month shooting star display! Summer is great, you just have to move to Upstate NY!!

I would LOVE to live in NY! I am sure the summers would be much more enjoyable and you know I love the cold and snow. Sigh... Tomatoes, corn and shooting stars are all good additions!

Beautiful morning you've got there ~ so, so peaceful.
I'd have to add hummingbirds and wildflowers to the list :-)

Alice said...

I admit I'm not keen on summertime humidity, but give me a 90 degree day, with an early sunrise and a late, late sunset any day (or night!) over cold, dreary, ice, and long nights. You must admit the early, golden sun in your photos is exquisite. And one can still wear wool in the summer - just head for an office, movie theatre, or restaurant for over air-conditioning!

You still have fireflies? Oh, envy! I haven't seen any on the east coast (the DC area, Georgia) since forever. I was afraid they'd all been murdered by monsanto.

At all?!?

You should live in Minnesota, we are cool again today about 72 for a high today 65 for tomarrow. I like it cool, I know it won't last but in the meantime I am enjoying it.
So you are still in the barn, hope he transitions soon...cut about the Babas, little b, BIG B and s:)
