Our Little Corner

Things have been busy in our little corner of the world. But I have still managed to take a few pictures this past week.
The spring flowers are blooming nicely under the old maple tree in front of our house. I wish there was a way to make that you could smell them.

 A beautiful forenoon had a lot of people passing our house to get to the nearby hiking trail.
 The children got up extra early and went outside to pick a bouquet of flowers for my birthday. I love, love simple gifts like that!
 We have been having lots of rain this month. I like how steam rises from the fields after  another rain has passed.
It's that time of year when a lot of new calves make their appearances. One of their favorite spots to hang out is near the waterfall.

The thought of them getting up early to get you flowers is quite touching. True,it is the simple things in life that brings us such great pleasure. Loving that you shared the picture of the children with the bouquet of flowers. Are you near enough to the waterfall to hear it from your home? Seems to me that would be such a peaceful / calming sound to hear.

Such tranquil, idyllic country scenes. God's creations (nature, animals and the best of all....the children) are all very precious.

Happy Birthday! And what a wonderful picture of your children. They appear to be quite happy, content and healthy, such a blessing. I like the waterfall, too.

Hi,
I enjoy reading your blog. My birthday is tomorrow. I will be 37
The days pass quickly. I love spring and I am enjoying hearing the beautiful sounds of nature. How old are you now? If you don't mind telling.

Beautiful photos!

I am so jealous. We've had an extremely cold spring this year. In fact, this morning while I was writing in my journal I saw snowflakes falling! :(

Patience, patience...

Happy Birthday and happy spring. I love your photos. Your children are lovely and I really like your waterfall too. None of my spring flowers are blossoming yet. A bit late this season in northern MI.

Happy Birthday! Are you near the Laurel Highlands trail? We used to so enjoy hikes there as kids...

Hi! I just found your blog through another blog last week. I have been catching up on reading all your posts this last week and finally did it. I really enjoy reading your stories of your childhood and early married life as well as your life now. Thanks for sharing your life with us! I am hoping another opportunity comes when you'll answer questions because I have one about how little children behaved during your church services.

Happy Birthday to you!
