This week for my Sunday Painting I decided on something rural and Springy. We spent the last 24 hours out in rural Maryland, about 10 miles from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Friends of ours own Whitmore Farm and we had a wonderful time with them collecting, washing, sizing, and sorting these beautiful eggs. Plus we helped tag a lamb that was born over night, clip and clean goat hooves, and move new born chicks out of the incubators into their warm halfway house before they head out doors to begin their lives lunching on grass. With all these English Journey books I am reading, I felt right at home on the farm.
It kills me that we forgot the camera at home since the farm was so green and lush, much like this beautiful image of Marin County, California.
