Summer Moments in the Country - June 24, 2016

In summer, I like to ride my bike in the evenings when it’s cooler and the lighting is golden which makes for beautiful photos. Last night I took a ride down a country road and watched the farmer making hay bales. He was making the old fashioned square kind as opposed to the round Muffett style. Every now and then he had to stop and open up his special bale maker and move the spools around containing the wire binding twine. I passed these two horses and of course I had to stop and say hello to them. These two looked so golden in the evening light. I noticed they were followed by a big flock of brownish-black birds and realized they must be cow birds. Now I know why they are called that. They don’t moo after all!

Magical Moments

Last Sunday morning I was watching from my window. In the space of five minutes, I saw the hummingbird, a baby rabbit and the cardinal. I managed to get photos of them all to relive those magical moments.

Magical moments, how quickly they pass Like a ripple of wind on a patch of grass, Savour the moment like gentle rain. This moment will never come again.
