Feathers

Sometimes you just happen to be in the right place at the right time. You have to wonder is this by chance or was it just meant to be.

What are the chances that a feather would land on a flower and stay there?

The wind was blowing but it never blew it away it stayed on top of the canna lily bloom.

I believe this feather is from the underneath back part of one of the black bellied whistling ducks that have been out at the feeders every day.

I photographed it and then I picked it up and brought it in the house.

Through the fields

 

In the afternoon the light is more golden than the morning, the pasture of Bahia grass appears to be a bright golden color.

As the wind blows the stalks of grass they seem to move gracefully across the 30 acres.

Everything is quiet and the day is so peaceful as the sun begins to set.

Liebster Award

I have been nominated for the Liebster award by Roda at Growing Self Blog. Check out her blog she has so much going on with her blog, the farm, gardening, and renovations it will make your head spin.

Since Roda nominated me I chose to answer her questions. I am super busy right now trying to help our daughter and her husband get ready for a move to a new house on 4 acres so I will not be nominating anyone at this time.

I feel like I am sort of cheating because my other blog that is still active had too many followers for this challenge.
