April Showers… bring May Flowers.. I hope..

Here is a photo of the “low water bridge” that leads to my home.

We had an incredible amount of rain this week and it took my low

water bridge from this…

To this..

Just in case you are wondering.. that is about 8ft deep.

We have creeks that run on both sides of our property.  This creek

is at the front of our land.  It’s normally just a little babbling

brook.. with water only about an inch deep.  Here it’s probably

6 feet deep.

Living in the Country.. Not so Bad After All.

I was a little apprehensive to move to the country 15 years ago. I didn’t want to be far from the mall or from civilization. I wasn’t sure if I would be accepted by the people out here. I knew I didn’t want to have anything to do with low water bridges or trekking miles into town to get a gallon of milk. I didn’t know is how beautiful it can be in the country.

Every late summer these Sunflowers grow along the road to my house.

I wonder if these are really sunflowers or if they are Black Eyed Susan’s?

Here’s some Kansas barbed wire with the yellow sunflowers in the background.

Don’t tell The Man.. But I am really glad I moved out here.
