There are times when I get frustrated and slip and start dwelling on the downsides of living in the country. It seems to happen more and more often as the inconveniences pile up and I let the disruptive business of being a caretaker’s wife get to me.
It only took a walk on the farm this weekend to remind me what we have here and the reasons we wanted to move to the country all those years ago.
Lots of open spaces.
Remnants of what this old farm used to be.
Wildlife everywhere I look.
Peaceful streams and lakes.
Milkweed in the wild areas and the butterflies it attracts.
Shaded paths less taken.
A boy with a sweet face who I hope will love nature just as much as I do.
Fun in unexpected places.
Wild flowers and bright blue eyes.
Have a lovely week!
