A little Time in Ozarks Farm Country



Last week as we were headed to spend a few hours on the farm,
we came across a mini cattle drive.

We came at the right time,
and were able to help make sure the cattle went in the right
gate and didn't take any detours!

When we arrived on the farm, there was a new addition in the pasture.
Although this burro looks pretty tame in the photo,
he really was very skiddish, and would bolt and run at our slightest move.

Morning fog enhanced the view of the black walnut tree,
which as you can see is loaded with nuts which will soon be falling.

The poke berries were ripe.
Their juice is bright red, and dyes anything it touches.
I've often wondered how birds can eat berries
that are considered poison to us humans!


The hummingbirds are getting rather chubby again...


They hungrily drink from the feeders getting ready for their
flight to the south.
I've done a few posts on hummingbirds,
because I find them so intriguing.

Well, the fog is lifting,
and it's time to head back to town...


Because there's apples to be picked!
The bucket truck comes in handy for reaching the large fruit
at the top of the tree, and it's a fun ride for grandkids, too!
Thanks for your visit!

I like the photos of the mini cattle drive and burro is so cute. I think picking apples way up high in a bucket would be fun!

Great series of shots...my favorite is the black walnut....used to let the cars run over the walnuts to crack em and we'd make black walnut homemade ice cream! My T: http://lauriekazmierczak.com/toll-gates/

They are just the kind of sights I like to enjoy too -we don't have cattle runs or humming birds here so even more special! Thanks for sharing your lovely photos!
