A Late Summer Morning on the Farm

Sep 27, 2014 | Half Way Farm, The Parisienne Farmhouse | 11 comments

 Sometimes but not often enough I get to escape outside to do the chores in the early morning.  Before children are running up and down the driveway… before the chickens have been let out…
 It’s so peaceful…
 I’ll load the baby in the stroller and we do the chores together in the cool yellow sunlight…
 Enjoying the last green views of the garden before fall sets in… I love this photo.
 My little trooper loaded up with feed.
 Two of our three rabbit breeding stock: Melissa and Lloyd
 Bonjour Valentino.
 Brother and sister.  Greedy for Grain.
 Like something out of Beatrix Potter a farm cat on the edge of the cistern spying on goldfish…
 Our other breeding doe:  Thelma
 Mornings are for scratching out cookbook ideas in my notebook that lives on the kitchen counter – ever ready…
 For delicious breakfasts you grew and raised yourself…
 For flower arranging to brighten the day…
 And for simple observations before the day kicks in.
These photos are from about three weeks ago.  
All month long I have had Paris on the brain.  It happens every fall.  It’s been over ten years.  
 I love mornings in Paris… the diesel smell of the green garbage trucks, the sound of café chairs being unstacked, the sea gulls on the river.
But right now I have this farm to enjoy.
The September morning sun is creeping through the trees.
I’d better get outside.

    I’ve been to Paris multiple times. I’d have to say I much prefer the quietness and peacefulness of a farm to that city. At least the goats would only try to mug me for food. Thanks for the photos. You have a beautiful farm.

    Oh My, it feels like I am in the country of France.
    It’s truly a blessed place to be on your farm, I have always admired the beauty you create in all things country French.
    Can’t wait to see more of what you have been doing inside your home.
    I am going to go back a few post making sure I did not miss out on anything here that I will want to take home with me as inspiration.

    That beautiful baby is getting so big and so cute that she is helping with the farms chores.

    Mornings are meant for Mommies!
    I love them myself and cherish the quiet beautiful morning light.
    Beautiful days start with these mornings!
