Country Drive

Last Sunday Hubby and I had to 
make a delivery to a friends farm.

I grabbed my camera and off we went!

It was a little hazy
but that didn't stop me from
taking a few pictures.

This old windmill is only a couple
of miles from our farm and I love
taking photo's as the seasons 

Below shows the windmill at work
keeping a water trough filled for 
the cattle.

These little cuties were across
the road from the windmill.

Someone was looking for their Momma.

Looks like they're both happy.

This time of year the roads are lined with
beautiful sunflowers...

...sunshine even on a cloudy day.

I'm linking with Amy for


Have a wonderful weekend!

A beautiful ride Maura, you live in a pretty area, and always have something to share with us....
Those Sunflowers are gorgeous, they are such a happy little flower.
First time I've seen a windmill pumping the water, how neat !
Have a lovely Fall weekend...

Loved going on your drive with you... we have the same kind of sunflowers along our roads, too, all blooming now.

Hi Miss Maura,

It' been awhile since I wrote, sorry. Mom has been keeping me busy here.

Happy Autumn. We love the pictures, that farm shot is beautiful and oh, the moo cows (that's what Mom called them when she was little) they are precious.

Have a happy weekend.

What a very pretty road to travel down. The baby calves are so sweet. I hope you were able to pick a lovely bouquet of sunflowers for yourself.

Nothing like a drive in the country. My Mom and use to do that all the time, but my husband the city boy dosen't get it!

Tara Dillard said...

I loved taking the drive with you! And those Sunflowers? Gorgeous!!
Have you finally had rain? We have had some on and off for the past two days. Finally opened the house up..nothing like breezes coming into the house and the hum of the darn AC gone!
Have a great weekend, Maura!!

Lovely photos Maura.

Thanks for the nice ride in the country. I do miss the sunflowers from when we lived in Kansas - lo those many years ago. I loved coming over a rise and seeing fields of them.

Janne said...

What a wonderful, happy, peaceful life you must have. Beautiful photographs. I will go to bed with sunshine in my head. Thank you!

Michaele said...

Wonderful set of photos! You sound like me when we go somewhere - wait! let me grab my camera!

Deb said...

Love the new header, Maura. You know I do :-)

Robin said...

I love your photos Maura! You've captured the changing seasons so beautifully. I love that old windmill. The photo with the textures applied looks so professional and rustic. Love it.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Great photos of your drive in the country! I love the happy sunflowers you see so much of this time of year. The first photo of the windmill is worthy of being in a frame! Have a great day!

GardenofDaisies said...

What a lovely drive through the country! Aw, the baby calves are just adorable. I LOVE sunflowers too!

Catherine said...

Hi Maura, Your blog has brought back many wonderful memories tonight. The home made ice cream with apple crisp, Yummy. I love the country drives on the two lane highways. You can see so much more and the pace isn't as fast. The fall color is starting and I can't wait. We always take a drive to look at the Sunflower fields in your state. Thank you for sharing. Your Missouri Friend.

Shirley said...

Hi Maura, I will try again to leave you a comment. I am having a terrible time. I get it all finished and hit the post comment and I lose it all. I don't know what is happening. Your blog brought back so many beautiful memories of life on the farm. The home made ice cream and apple crisp looks so yummy. We visit over your way to see the sunflower fields that are so pretty. We like to travel the two lane highways. You can see so much at a slower pace. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

That windmill picture is a keeper.... I love how you edited/textured it to be so old looking too.

I'd love to be able to drive around and see sunflower fields... here it's just raspberry, blueberry, potatoes, corn or grass!


Verde Farm said...

What pretty pics! I so love that windmill and would love to have one :) We have those sunflower type flowers here to growing wild--so pretty. What building is that in your header? I love that pic!!
Hugs, MM

LANA said...

I felt like I was right along the road with you. Great photos, and it's nice to see some old fashioned green energy, like the windmills! Do those sunflowers grow wild like that - beautiful!
