One thing I won't miss about this time of year is allergies, farm life wouldn't be as fun without them! This is such a lovely view! The hills in the distance are they ancient mountains? Or just big hills?

Cheers

Don, Did you used to live on a farm, were you a farmer? I used to live on a farm, a very small one. I am so relieved to not do farming! Farmers work so hard and it never ends. I know some folks love it, but I enjoy the fruits of others labors! Allergies is only a small part of the difficulties that farmers face.

The hills in the distance are old mountains.

Dianne, No, my backyard is all trees. I really do live in the forest, no joke.

giors, I love your many nice compliments.

Guy, I'm tempted to call give this photo a title by stealing more of your words, you are so witty! But I think I will look up the names of those old mtns.

we used to raise pigs and cattle to sell at market, but small time farms have gone the way here now that the big commercial farms have rolled in. now we raise pheasants quails peacocks and chickens, we try to produce as much of our own food as possible to save a little cash.

cheers

Don, I only visit the grocery store now. I grow a few flowers in pots. My mother loved chickens and that was the last thing that she had to give up. She is old now and bedridden, also blind. She adored her farm life and her garden. So I have some fond memories but the life is so hard, I am glad to be rid of it. I don't mind still seeing others at work there though if they enjoy it. For me, I am glad it is only a memory. I hope to never have to milk another cow as long as I live!

Cheers, Jean

Jean, I spent the day searching for a giant puffball. I found one snapped a shot and rushed home to get it uploaded and as I was walking across the lawn low and behold... there was a much bigger one just sitting there in the middle of the yard.

Cheers

Don
