Today, back home it is Mother’s day. This post is written for my awesome Mommy. I love you and I wish I could celebrate with you.
This week has been super busy with lots of trips to the village. It really reminds me of childhood in Hannahville, PA. The iris, tulips, trees, and more are all a bloom.
The fields are being worked for the harvest come fall. the tillers are ripping up lots of weeds and we are removing the rest.
I went out yesterday to take a pic of all the flowers blooming about the rock wall and discovered this.
There were three sets of mating snails at the base of the wall not 2 feet apart. Kinda kinky, huh? Nature is surprising and intriguing all the time. just like when I was a kid.
Yesterday the hubby and I got to work in the field together trimming pesky seedlings planted by fallen cherries. Milan helped me to learn how to drive the tractor. Not a difficult task, but something that will take a few more lessons to learn. with the strange gear shift and all the brakes… well all two. 😉 still.
The long shadows of the end of the day make me tall. Something only a set of heels does otherwise.
Working in the fields is a pleasure for me. Mama got to take care of the little tyke while I explored the great outdoors with the hubby. so many treasures. New flowers and plants I have never seen before! some familiar ones too.
I found this lovely nest nestled in the ground among the weeds.
Tiny speckled eggs, that will soon hatch tiny baby birdies.
The days work also brought the joy of finding a little shack at the edge of a stream below the fields. The shade of the trees and the air coming of the stream creates a natural air conditioning system so welcoming after working in the sun filled fields. Mosquitoes are the only downfall of this respite.
Close to the shed there is also a necessary room, that sets atop the creek.
and not far away is a little bridge that traverses the creek to other fields that lay nearby.
The bridge was used later to get to the tractor in a neighboring field. There was one more field to fertilize on the way home.
Then we went home to our little baby and Baba.
Our little rockstar was all tuckered out after the long day.
We send you lot of warm wishes and hugs and kisses on this special day.
lovely pictures of your daughter and also like the farm and sheds Reminds me of growing up in my early childhood in new Zealand My dad had a dairy farm in the south Island of new Zealand
I used to get up at 05.30am to help him milk the cows before going to school a long time ago
Does your farm have a vineyard looks like it also loved the birds nest and lovely flowers
Hello! We have sour cherries. no orchards yet. maybe someday. you are blessed to come from such a lovely land. and to have lived on a farm. It is hard work, but so good for you. Thanks for the comment. I am so happy to have you visit!
what a great post showing your neighbourhood!
that was lovely, but I particularly loved the sentence about the late shadows making you tall, and the warmth of that photo. You have a lucky mum.
