One of my farmers has a pasture full of cows next to one of his cotton fields. I walked over and took a picture of this cow standing under the shade tree contentedly chewing her cud. If someone had this cow on a farm I could imagine her being named Bessie and being the family milk cow. I thought this made a pretty picture. Got milk?
I would like to welcome my newest follower. maGic has a blog where she has created a form of exercise she calls maGic. Thanks for following and welcome.
Sweet Thing picked her first tomatoes from the plant I set out.
These are some nice salad tomatoes, but she likes all kinds of tomatoes. I myself do not care for raw tomatoes, but cook up a mess of okra and tomatoes and I’ll go to town on them! Someday I’ll have a nice big garden on the homestead, but until then we will have to be satisfied with buying fresh vegetables from our local Farmers Market. That’s almost as good as homegrown!
I took a picture of this giant Oak Tree at the entrance of one of my fields today. It is at least six feet in diameter and would have yielded a lot of lumber in the past. There once was a house at this site, but it is gone now. It makes me wonder about history, how many people have sat under it’s shade and what stories could it tell if it could only talk. But this tree has seen better days. It has been struck by lightning and hit by cars, burned by fires, attacked by insects and ravaged by disease but it still keeps hanging on. Like most things in nature, our number one instinct is just to survive. So like this old Oak Tree, let’s keep hanging on and survive as long as we can. Better days are ahead!
