At The Farm

My daughter and I decided to take a trip to a local farm this weekend.
We use to visit this farm when the kids were little.
They had open barn, so we thought we'd go and take a few photos.
My daughter likes to take photos as much as I do. 
It's a nice activity we can do together.

I remember when the kids came here and fed the animals little springs of hay.
They were so happy when a cow would nibble from their hand! Awww!

Checking out the camera!

There were still some daffodils blooming on the grounds.

Some buds ready to blossom.

This friendly goose thought we had a little snack. Sorry!
We just want a few photos!
Now to find a block of time to sit and do a little drawing.
Maybe tomorrow. 
Things have been a bit crazy around here the last few weeks!
All good, but crazy. That's life!

Hope you're having a good week!

Hi Lynn. Great photos. I love the one of the sheep, the buds with the blurred background, and the reflection of the Canada Goose.
I hope you will find time for drawing from these great shots.
Enjoy the week.

Those look like a couple of my chickens though mine are small still. You took some great shots. Are you going to draw from your photographs?

Hi Lynn,

When my children were younger we used too go to 'open barns' as well. It is so much fun for the children. Especially for city girls like ours :-)

You made some lovely photographs!

Happy day,

Hi Lynn,
That beautiful sheep would make a fabulous model for one of your pretty drawings.
Your photos from the farm are all beautiful, you have a knack for knowing what is art.
Have a beautiful day.

Hi Lynn, I still love visiting farms. Always wished I had grown up on one. My older brother and sisters kind of did. No barn, but a few animals. I was the youngest of 8. My father died when I was 9 months old so things changed drastically for my mom. I would love for you to share this with my linky party if you have time.

Hi, Lynn
That's a great way to spend time with your daughter. I really like your farm shots and am particularly drawn to the one of the sheep. I hope your drawing is going well.
