Livin' in Farmville

I live in Farmville. 
Yes, I play the game, but no, I don't mean the game. 
I mean the real deal:
The Farmville of red barns
And barn quilts, two different kinds
Of lonesome doves and silly squirrels
Of goldenrods and groundhogs
And ducks and geese aplenty!
There are trains
And trucks 
 And big red tractors, oh my!
 There's a right way
And a wrong way
A harvest moon
And a clear, blue sky!
There are foggy mornings
And sun-ripened tomatoes
And lots and lots
And lots
Of sheep!!!

I LOVE your version of Farmville! (Not that I've ever seen the other, nor want to.) All these photos make me smile with happiness. Hope you and The Bug have a wonderful weekend!

Ha! Here we seem to have more goats than sheep (and I'm not drawing any comparisons in terms of biblical divisions). I envy your sheep population. We have lots of pastoral landscape here, but mostly cows, and not so many barns, at least in view of the road. I love barns. New England has some great barns. I feel a road trip coming up.

thanks.

I have sheep & barns on my commute too - so there! It really is one of the reasons I love where we live so much.

Not too many sheep in the heart of the city. I really love the harvest moon picture too!
