So Many Beautiful Sights

Since we last chatted, we have been subject to every type of weather.
From warm and sunny to torrential downpours with tornado warnings,
from sunny and wildly windy to cold and frosty,
our weekend was not for the unprepared!

We took a drive on Saturday morning to a small, local college town for an arts festival.  
It is the perfect time of year to get out and see the countryside.
The Eastern Redbud trees fill the woods with the most beautiful lilac hue.

A drive through the countryside provides so many fascinating scenes.

The winds were so strong that morning,
that many of the vendors decided to not set up their wares.
There was still plenty to see, but the winds were harsh enough to make us
want to take in the sights as quickly as possible.

After a stop for lunch on the way home, we spent the rest of the day on the farm.
The winds continued, but the sun was shining and everyone was out enjoying the 
break from the rain (we'd had torrential rain on Friday night).

Both the guineas and the ducks were crossing the pasture in formation
as they searched for tasty insects.
