Miscellaneous Monday


So many photos, so few memes.
{...wait...that's not right.}


But I do have a handful of extra shots from last week that never made it into the rotation.
Most are from Thursday's trip to the farmstead.

goat-eating-hay

This little guy was sooooo cute!!!
{if someone had told me I could take them all home, I'd have done so in a heartbeat!}



Lantern

...one if by land, two if by sea...
This was one of several lanterns in the dairy barn.
and I liked it, so I took a picture.



water-basin

They also have these gorgeously green well-style hand pumps with cobalt blue basins beneath as their wash station near the goats.
{beauty is in the details...except you can't really see them here.}


barn-at-high-noon---full-fr

and who could ignore the giant red barn?!
{well, no one, because that's where you enter. ;)}
Check out that weather vane, too!


bunny

And this one....there's a story here...

My husband and I had gone out to stake up our tomato plants in our backyard one evening when we caught two bunnies nibbling away at the new growth.
{stinkin' bunnies}
But instead of running away as fast as they could, they ran a little bit and stopped.
So I ran to get my camera!
When I came back I apparently made "ridiculous clopping noises" with my flip flops {so says my husband} and scared them away. They ran under our wooden gate and I had to go see if they stopped again.
Which they did! One was about 6 feet from me, so I carefully crouched to the ground to get some shots.
I managed to take a few super blurry ones and then the bunny started hopping toward me!
Closer and closer...
{why oh why did I grab my 70-300 when the 50 is what I needed?!?}
And then as if that wasn't crazy enough, this gutsy bunny starts running at me!

What do I do?
I flinch.
A bunny made me flinch.
And he ran away for real this time.

Not long after all this, his buddy figured out that his friend was gone and came out for the shot above.

  1. Gorgeous shots. I love the barn. The story about the bunny is funny. Is your husband going to tease you about a bunny making you flinch? Mine would. Lol. Great capture of the bunny, too. The story makes it that much better.

  5. You crack me up - I'm likely going to jump on a plane or in my car and come to see you. I especially love that water faucet shot! You're so creative.

  6. The Willy Wonka reference made me laugh. Miscellaneous Monday is a perfect idea. I so often have photos just waiting for a home, but no cohesive thoughts for pulling them together into a respectable post. Your pump shot is fantastic. And the barn with weather vane.

  8. Hahahaha...Katie, this was so much fun to read. I should tell you about my little mouse story when I was pregnant, but I won't, I'll leave it in your imagination for a moment.

    Great photos, as always!!
