Country Life

I love the country life!
I love summertime!
I love surprises!
When you put them all together, you get something that looks like this:

You look out your kitchen window and see this strutting just off the side of your deck...

or you see these cute babies...

with Mama not far behind...

keeping careful watch...
or you find these yummy bites of nature freely growing behind your shed and you envision the scrumptious cobbler that will result...mmm-mmm.  Sorry, no pic of the cobbler--I didn't think of that until it was half gone, then it wasn't nearly as pretty!  ;)

Berry pickin' 2013 
or while picking "said berries", you hear little sounds coming from the back of the shed.  You search a little and find this cute face looking up at you.  We had only seen what was obviously Mama once, just the day before, in our front yard.  Not sure where she came from and why she chose us--but they are adorable.  Our two-year-old granddaughter enjoyed peeking in at them.  As they were mewing, she said, "Awww, they want their mama."
or as you poke around in the gardens, pulling a few weeds, you find these hiding in those cucumber vines :)  Can't wait to get enough so I can make some refrigerator pickles...stay tuned for that recipe...

and did you catch this glimpse of Mama in the garden pic above?  She was sneaking past the garden beds when I took this pic this morning.  How appropriate that I could include her in this.


So who else loves the country life?  I'd love to hear from you!
