join me, won't you?

tiny hummingbirds have been visiting my red geranium

sweet angel offering a sip to whomever needs one on their travels...


wisteria on shop fence


bearded iris

waiting…..



happy pansy faces


new lamb's ear fuzz ~

our barn through the bittersweet on farmhouse porch


Roxy left a gift for me under the rosebush ~


it's a partial deer-jaw….when the hunters kill them in the fall,  they just leave their poor carcasses to rot.
Roxy & Lazy usually bring antlers and bones to us ~ poor things.


wild poppies growing free


look how big our kittens are!
in the summer, they live in the 'kitten coop'
{{ to keep them from being Mr. Fox's next meal!!!}}


baby chicken-butts



good morning momma-Esther!



Peter loving on 'Tig' ~ my how big he has grown!!!



Roosty says 'good morning to you!'

Hoping your day is filled with beautiful little things 
...that make your heart happy!

Such a beautiful tour! I felt like I was there smelling the flowers, patting the kittens and taking in all of the beauty of your farm. Thank you for sharing, especially from someone who misses living in the county a lot!

Love seeing all your animals Lori. Your Tig looks just like our Tyg! Same coloring. Tyg is about 2.5 now and very, very active. Esther is darling. Thanks for the gorgeous tour.
