One Misty Moisty Morning!

Early this morning when I got up, this is what I saw out my window! Beautiful sunrays trying their hardest to peek through the mist into the valley! I just HAD to get my camera and take a little walk outside! Thousands of dewdrops were glistening like jewels everywhere I looked. The mist seemed to get thicker and the mountains disappeared from sight for awhile. Quiet and mystical. I couldn't believe how many spiderwebs I could see all over the yard! Each and every one of them covered in shiny dewdrops formed by the mist.
I love how the water droplets invert the picture thousands of times over!
What a wonderful start to a fabulous day! The sun was stronger than the mist and eventually burned it all away, giving us an awesome autumn afternoon!

Nature's Beauty near our Home

This is the view I have when I sit on my deck at home! The ever changing view of Mt. Cheam and the open fields! I love to sit here and enjoy nature at it's finest! Coyotes and blue herons, and even the odd bear, roam the fields and woodlands. Eagles and hawks soar through the air sending out their beautiful calls and shrieks. What a wondrous province we live in! Here are a few more pics from around our yard and home. What a beautiful summer this has turned out to be!

We can find beauty all around us if we only take the time to look! Every part of nature has it's own beauty, we all need to take the time to " stop and smell the roses"!!! Life is too precious and short! From flowers and plants and bugs in our own gardens, to beautiful parks, forests,  oceans and lakes and streams. there are so many things to enjoy close to home. I absolutely love taking pics of anything beautiful that catches my eye, I have thousands of photos to prove it! :)
The summer is flying past! And I feel like I don't have enough time to really enjoy the sunny days before winter is upon us once again! My autumn flowers are beginning to bloom in my gardens already!

A sunny walk to the farm!

Spring is here! That means lots of new life at the farm! I went for a walk today because I wanted to see some baby goats that were born at the farm on sunday. They are soooo cute! The big billy goat was hogging the fence trying to get a treat ( Marnix always gives him a handful of calf grain) so I couldn't get many clear shots of the little ones. But I really enjoyed watching them all! Characters!

Next we (Marnix and I) walked through the calf barn and took a look at a big bull calf that was born yesterday. He was laying peacfully on the sawdust, and he wasn't in any hurry to get up. We let him be, of course I had to take a few pics of him! The other calves peeked their heads out of their pens, hoping to get fed.

 Marnix had to get back to work, so I had a visit with the three donkeys. They seemed to be posing for me, and I got some very gorgeous pics of them!

After that it was time to head back home to my housework. I really enjoyed my walk in the sunshine! I took some more pics on my way home. The magnolia's are almost ready to bloom!
                        What a beautiful day!

Spring Gardens.

                                      A gorgeous sunset as seen from my
                                    front yard. I love sunsets and have many pics
                                    proving that fact! I will be posting some as I
                                    get more used to having this blog. I have never
                                    done this before!
My garden is beginning to grow! Every year I can hardly
wait to get started in my gardens. I`m like my Mom I guess
because she loves it too!
