The Browns Visit the The Farm

A farm visit begins with a cocktail - friends usually arrive in the afternoon and it seems the best welcome after a long hot, beautiful drive through the mountains to our place by a little river.

There are lots of conversations and stories being read.

Of course it isn't all play, we put all our visitors to work - kids included!

Lucy and Jasper have become great helpers - they know how to feed the chickens and Ducky,

and to collect the eggs that I sell from our house,

and now they are learning how to be one with the Flock.

April made friends with Jack & Jill,

and Fred & Ollie, the Tom Turkeys.

"Gobble, gobble, gobble"!

When the chores were finished we did let the kids play in the hay!

Meanwhile, the Men were busy working in the vineyard, finishing putting the last of the trellis poles in the hard, rocky ground.

Thanks Rob!!!

All these photos were taken by Rob and April, and they were so kind to share them with us.
There were so many beautiful shots it was hard to pick which ones to post.
I will close with these two that shows off the farm and the great weather we had during their visit.

We hope The Browns visit again soon!!!
