I grabbed a cart and made a B – line for the dollar table covered in Mums.
They had some beauties!
There was an amazing variety of gourds to choose from.
And cornstalks galore!
Love these ornamental red chili pepper plants!
With a cart-full of fall beauty I set out to get a closer look at the greenhouses and make my way through the farmyard.
Before I introduce you, let me back up a bit. I grew up around Mary’s (and Marvin’s’ too) Lots and lots of them. I had forty years of seeing Mary’s every day of my life. Not in a hands on way like many farmgirls but they were always there in the distance. The suburban sprawl that swept through northern Nevada in the early 80’s changed things for me and the cows. Prior to that time, a day didn’t go by where you couldn’t drive past a field, pasture or BLM ( Bureau of Land Management ) land and see cows happily grazing.
Just for the BEACH farmgirl record, you don’t see a whole lot of anything on four legs grazing in the wide- open along the south coast of New England. Seagulls, yes! Cows, no!
I stopped in on the sheep just after they ate lunch. This one was hoping for a cookie or a carrot.
I think this one knew better!
looked like she might attack me if I came to close. Hi Rosieeeeeeeeee.
The mini horses were adorable.
And fiesty too!
The goats were darling.
As cute as all the farmyard animals were, none of them compared to my Mary once I finally found her!
Her big brown eyes, soft brown fur and big floppy years had me swooning from the minute I laid eyes on her.
She sees me!
She’s checkin’ me out…
She LOVES me!!! I bet we can finish each other’s thoughts!
Thanks so much for joining me today sisters! Remember to bring your farmgirl spirit where ever you go. It will make an ordinary day into something magical every time! IT’S A FARMGIRL THING!
Now it’s your turn!
Finish this thought in the comments section below!
Until our next shoreline visit~
BEACH and HIGH DESERT BLESSINGS!
* The image above was taken near Pyramid Lake In Nevada where I hope cows still roam out in the wide open. That little red number was my BK car ( before kids )! My next convertible will be a HORSE!
