If you are still asleep at sunrise,
you should consider getting up and getting outside....
The light of sunrise is a gift to be savored...
each day different than the last.
Yesterday's sunrise illuminated the leaves,
making our woods look as though they had been set on fire.
It's a magical time of day... one too easily missed.
Yesterday gifted us not only with an amazing sunrise,
but also with adorable visitors.
Our little friends,
came to visit the farm.
They brought apple slices for the horses.
(The pigs and goats were not impressed with the apples.)
Macy fed Ritz to Dot.
And before long, she had the chickens jumping for joy.
Chickens love Ritz as much as goats do!
Macy, a fearless kindergardener, boldly stuck a Ritz between her teeth....
and offered it to the jumping chickens.
We witnessed the birth of a new "act"....
Macy and Her Amazing Jumping Chickens
Chloe and Daphne enjoyed the attention they were given by both girls,
and re-payed the favor with a nip on the back of the arm
(yes, sadly, both girls went home with a little pinch mark on the arm)
Chloe: "Please don't leave...I didn't mean to pinch you!"
Animals and children....a magical combination
in this awesomely beautiful season.
Summer's color remains...
with Autumn's jewel tones added on top....
Day's just don't get any better than this.
Thanks Maggie and Macy for a fun afternoon!
