Last Sunday we had a lovely afternoon.
After church we had a belated but absolutely delicious Easter lunch at my grandparent’s house with our cousins.
Afterwards the kids went down to play with Marigold, a sweet, tame cat who lives in the barn.
We got distracted from the cat by a game of “Who Can Find the Tallest Dandelion.” If you have never played that game, I highly recommend it. 🙂 Sometimes the simplest, happy things are the best things.
We have hundreds and thousands of dandelions around our farm, and some of them grow over two feet tall in the fields. Seriously.
We graciously fed our dear rabbits some of the losing dandelions. Lily sat there contentedly, not moving except for her mouth and nose, slurping up dandelion stems like spaghetti. We tried not to let the dandelions run out, but eventually they did. Until they stopped she just nibbled away one after another, looking mildly disinterested and rather sleepy.
Then we gathered eggs – a not very lovely part of the afternoon, because they were extremely dirty and it took forever. The good thing is, it didn’t actually take forever, because we finished eventually.
When we were doing the dandelion contest earlier, I had noticed the beautiful crimson clover and vetch blooms in the fields. After eggs, I ran down to the house and grabbed my camera straight away.
And so here are the photos. I love the peaceful, beautiful, serene atmosphere of them. ♥
And I love that little things like dew drops and triticale and even weeds like dandelions can be so pretty and graceful.
*Happy sigh* I really enjoyed this photoshoot and I hope you did too! Thank you for persevering through allllll of those pictures. 🙂 Do you have a favorite or favorites?
Have a wonderful day! ♥
