Jewels of Impending Spring! (Photo Friday)

“Objects, which are usually the motives of our travels
      by land and by sea
are often overlooked and neglected
      if they lie under our eye.”
                              Pliny The Younger
                                ( AD 61-105)

OK; this is not a photo from today.

 I sit here shivering after spending two hours in the pouring rain, doing chores

walking through the snow, and the slush.

On days like this I question why we farm,

then, I remember back only two days ago,

when it was a beautiful morning, and I was sitting by my stream,

listening to the water babbling over the rocks.

Reminding me, better days are ahead, and

enjoy the signs of things to come.

Check out  for Farm Friend Friday.



  1. Woww... these pictures of Ice look really Cool***** B you are very talentedand* and the best of my compliments to you

  2. Absolutely, chillingly, beautiful

  3. The formations are whimsical -- like little men with fat legs. :)

  4. I am so glad you see the beauty, captured it and shared. I do not think "why" do we farm, rather "there has to be a better way" and I'll keep at it til I find it.

  5. It's true (Nancy) in that photo towards the middle, I saw a row of Santa legs... :)

    I do hope the weather warms for you soon, dearie! I know it must be hard to keep slogging through the cold and snow.

  6. Now you are really clever with your photos, love them. M
