Bucolic

Pin It
Although April is not what you'd call warm yet, and rain is still on the horizon, here is what is true this morning:  my sweet old mare can be out in her corral having her breakfast instead of in her stall because the ground is too muddy; the lilacs are putting forth their apple-green leaves and buds; a small spider dared to spin a web fully exposed to the fickle elements; my backyard hens are now laying 6-8 eggs a day instead of 2 or none.

All sure signs that our hemisphere is turning toward the sun.

Just as it should.

Albeit
               so
                           very
                                          slowly.

What fabulous capture! Love the huge spider web! And your horse is beautiful! I had a gray, Arabian mare many years ago, she was such a jewel! Hope your week is going well!

Everything turned out so perfectly in that photograph. Did you bribe everyone to pose? :)

Lovely Ruby Tuesday tulip, but this photo with the spiderweb is sensational. Everything about it is exceptional. Great, great shot. Mickie :)
