so much space! you are so lucky :)
This area is known for "blue skies and friendly people." I'd say that's true!
I'd say the hard work is definitely worth having that for a backyard.
Hi farmgirl, beautiful picture, you are so lucky!! Amy and I are up and running at the new site so come and visit.
Absolutely beautiful. Worth the sweat and effort, I'm sure :)
Hi Everyone (including new visitor Gina--for some reason your nice comment showed up in my inbox but not here--welcome to the farm!),Thanks for all your kind words. I took this picture the other day while we were haying. The more I looked at it after posting it yesterday, the more I liked it. I actually figured out how to make it the desktop background on my new computer screen.Each time I sit down at the computer, it takes a split second for my brain to register that the gorgeous scenery I am looking at is actually my backyard. Now, more than ever, I am so grateful for all that I have. We take so many things in life for granted. This picture is a gentle, lovely reminder of just how very, very fortunate I am. I'm happy I could share it with you.
