Cows in the evening

A few weeks ago , just as the sun was setting, and the new moon was making its way above the tree line, I heard some strange sounds in the field behind the house

On further inspection and much to my delight the field was full of cows and their calves, this is a rare experience for us, as in fourteen years of living at Chez Margie, there has always been barley growing in that field. I called Mr. Margie and Leiny out to witness this sight.

Look at this handsome little fella, he was so playful and giddy, excited to be in the wide open spaces, we stayed out watching the fun and games for about half an hour.

On our way back indoors we stopped to admire the honeysuckle, it was in full bloom, and its sweet scent grew stronger just before dusk .
Our neighbour, the farmer, did not leave the cows there for long, moving them along to greener pastures once the bull had paid a visit.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Big hugs,

Sounds like a peaceful and altogether pleasant evening.

That was fun to see. We used to have cattle in the pastures above us and always when I drove down the lane I stopped to talk to them. Now there is a house there...ugh! And that honeysuckle is so's beautiful. Ours is yellow...smells sweet but not pretty like yours. Come on over for a visit and see your pretty things and sign up for my give-away. xo Lynn
