At last the days are getting a little longer. When I get home from work there is no longer the rush to get animals fed and firewood stacked before it gets dark. If I’m lucky I occasionally get half an hour to grab the camera and take a little wander around the garden or down to the creek.
Country Boy has been steadily working to extend our house garden all winter. We now have a gate that leads down to the bridge across the creek that he built two years ago. I don’t get down there often, but it is one of my favourite places on the farm, particularly when the creek is flowing steadily. The sound of the running water, together with the sheltered sun makes it so peaceful and relaxing… at least until the kids find me!
