Down on the farm

This afternoon, we visited an open farm with our kids. It was a lovely warm afternoon, but as usual all 3 spent most of their time indoors with the baby chicks, ducklings and guinea pigs.

My son was particularly keen on getting down to eye level with all the animals he was feeding and having a little chat.

I found a photo challenge You Capture over at I Should Be Folding Laundry, and the theme for this week is rustic.

This old bed head is propped up against a barn wall just opposite our cottage.

This door has been featured before in my photos, as has the abandoned cottage it is just about attached to!

Finally this gate was beside the walled garden at the farm we visited today.

Off to check out some of the other rustic photos.

    Silly question though, what is an open farm? Is it a working farm that lets people take tours?

  4. I love the shot of the door. I don’t know why, but I do.

    And the kids look like they had fun. I’m just glad you can’t SMELL a photo. Because in my experience, no matter what kind of farm it is, it still smells like a farm.
