Rural winter walk…..


Last weekend, on retreat,  we wandered a little around the property.  It was a balmy winter day, sunny and crisp.

IMG_8944 We had a noisy but friendly greeting at the barnyard entrance…..

IMG_8889 They were beside themselves, wanting to show us around (or maybe just anticipating a meal)….


but not knowing which direction to take us first…..


Don’t forget the cacophony of honkerings……



IMG_8920 Then someone decided to lead us beyond the fence….

IMG_8933 to meet their friends…..



This city girl was quite entranced

IMG_8925 They were so peaceful, gentle, yet placidly curious….now I’ve experienced the meaning …..


March comes in like a lion, and out like a lamb.
