The 20-year-old homemade swing in the hayfield keeps getting higher as the tree gets bigger.
I haven't been taking any pictures lately, but a few mornings ago I decided to grab my camera as Bear, Bert, Henry, and I headed out to check on the donkeys, the chickens, the big dogs, and the sheep. Before we'd even left the farmyard I was seeing photos everywhere.
It's all in the light.
15 more photos below. . .
Wishing you a light-filled rest of the week!

Feel like a little stroll down farm memory lane?
