We were away last week, a little road trip to Wisconsin and the farm to see some friends, make some new ones and just enjoy being outside...
where boys can practice using their slingshots and can run and pick raspberries and learn to drive the mule and tuck wild daisies behind their ears if they feel like it
where the viburnum snowballs are growing like wildflowers
where there were fields of horsetail plant to admire and wild mulberries and black cap raspberries to graze on
where the fourth of July was celebrated on a farm, with a swimming pool and state-of-the-art fireworks and paper lanterns to send up to the sky
we ate farm fresh eggs and wonderful pancakes for brunch made by our dear friend, Amanda
and I admired the new paint job in the guest room
and lazed around on the porch with the cat
while watching last year's wedding garland (now faded) blowing in the wind...
