i could have been a farm girl....








sometimes 
when a few of us from our photography group get together 
we do this or that or go here or there
last week 
we went to the heartland sanctuary
~
these are all rescue animals
and
they love people 
~kind of the way dogs love people~
~
i can't think of a better way to spend a late afternoon
especially since my hubby came with me
{can you find him in one of these photos}
*
i hope you are loving your long weekend

  1. Great photos and love how you have them displayed! I keep threatening hubby that I want to have goats in the next phase of my life ... I think he's reconsidering this whole marriage thing! *snort*

    Anyway, is the hubster the one taking the photo above?

  7. I did the same thing just last week.
    You're right the animals really love people's attention.
    Looks like a fun day was had by all and some great photos too!

  8. I think your hubby is in the first "real" black and white photo - taking a picture of you. I, too, love animals, the outdoors, farms, especially the smells. I am not at all offended by the *ahem* natural smells of the barnyard, in fact I find myself invigorated by it. It awakens a part of my spirit that wants to get up with the roosters and go to bed with the sun. Lovely shots, they make me crave going for a walk in the woods which, in fact, I am going to do and brave the blackflies rain or shine.

  20. dearest Beth,
    it is me kt40(kt)it has taken me a while to get back online, but your blog is one of my first stops. I wanted to thank you for the "day by day" bracelette and the beautiful notecard you sent to sperlygirl then she sent it off to me. The bracelette does not leave my arm and the notecard is hanging near the bathroom mirror so i can see it each day. I am working on a new blog and hopefully by this summer it will be up and running. much love to you!!
