Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

Summer Rain

Gentle summer rain fell on the farm today.


You would think I would be sick of moisture
since last month we got a record breaking 20 inches
when our normal is 2!
However, after the rain stopped,
the temperatures heated up 
and the farm dried up fast.
Our gardens & our farm animals 
haven't been very happy.

Today everyone seems glad for the misting morning.

The Jacob Sheep are grazing,


and the cat is on the prowl.


Despite the general disrepair that 
the weather brought to the gardens,
there are some sunshiney spots~
the daylilies and daisies have started their bloom.


And the purple clematis on the birdhouse
has never looked better.


As for the bees,
they are mostly working inside today
tending to housework,
which is exactly what I am doing too
while I enjoy the summer rain.


All the ways of the Lord
are loving and faithful.
Psalm 25:10
