A Country Morning

I often post my thoughts and photos of Chicago or New York...places I love dearly. However it is scenes like this that keep me tied to the country. Last week one morning ...this was the scene across a field where we live. The sun had just begun to warm the countryside with it's golden hues and later spread all across the valley. Quiet, except for the birds and a far off occasional "moo" reminded me of the time I spent in Switzerland at the base of the Jura mountains near Geneva. Only the it was an occasional far off sound of bells tied around the necks of the herds of cattle grazing on the foothills of the Jura.

Have a great week!

What lovely scenery, it almost has a New England feel.
Hope you week goes well.

Your view is amazing! I could take a deep breath there. :)
Your narrations always transport me.

Sunny thanks...I am sure things will be better this week. I usually try to keep personal things off the blog since folks come to see the pictures (Hopefully)and not to hear about my personal life! It was just a bit much last week and I had to let it out.

Shabbgygirl...I guess it is human nature not to appreciate the things one sees everyday. Whether it is Arizona or Indiana...we tend to not pay attention to the familiar things around us but no matter where we live there are always wonders to behold!

Beautiful misty photo dear Dan, yes there are wonders of nature to behold everywhere, sometimes where we least expect them to be..
Sometimes it is good to let things out, no good bottling up feelings of hurt and sadness.
Take care dear friend. xoxo ♡
