Spring on the Farm
Spring in Virginia is really something to behold. I have decided to make a list of a few things I love about it!
Daffodil leaves pushing up fallen leaves in a race to bear the first flower of Spring
A newborn calf, reposed in a patch of mint, batting it’s long, wet eyelashes against the sun
Cows heel-kicking and running tail-high through a gate to pasture Milk that tastes like onion grass
Rolling a fresh dandelion stem between my fingers
Cattle strewn about motionless, stretched out left side up to catch the sun
The squeak of heavily dewed grass as it’s chewed by a cow Wind whipping through trees at a changed pitch as trees begin to bud and leaf
The list goes on and on. Things are always busy, but we can all better connect to our surroundings and appreciate the beauty around us by taking just a moment to ourselves.
