Morning dew on pastures in early morning.
Brown Swiss dairy steers (my farming experiment, more on this later)
Morning light and one of our cows with her calf. She is a small framed beauty!
Sheep and lambs on May pasture
I had to stop to take this picture of the all greens over Lucky Dog Farm in Hamden, New York. The farm is situated in such a beautiful spot, and you can always count on the seasons to be reflected in the beautiful mountains that frame the farm.
May is a tempest of greens: lush pastures, dandelion greens, new maple tree leaves and ramps on the forrest floor. No May is alike, and this year a rare spring drought had its impact on our pastures. I asked my father how the drought had impacted the grass, and he hurriedly answered: “it’s just different” and promptly rushed off to do another task. Thankfully, I was able to make myself useful and helped moved the bulls and steers. So it goes at Spring Lake Farm, I did squeeze in a few glorious early morning walks where the morning light was so rich and the dew heavy on our mountain pastures glistened, a delight!Pin It
