Farm Country

As I've mentioned before, this area is very much a farmscape. Barns - old and new - dot the hills and fields, and between the fields of wheat, onions, and grapes are grazing cows, horses, sheep, and goats. I spotted this beautiful view when I stepped out into the backyard of the house my sister is taking care of while the owners are away for the summer. They have a couple of kittens and we'd stopped by to see them. I couldn't help but grab my camera and snap this shot. Call me a country girl, but I think this scene is so gorgeous and serene.

Oh my... I love it, I love it! I'm dreaming to have this kind of house, in the middle of nowhere, peacefully. Thanks for posting this picture!

So peaceful and serene...I would love to live there. I especially like the way you "framed" the photo with the fence in the foreground.
