The Farm in Spring

This weekend I had a wonderful time at one of Ohio’s many great lakes and metroparks. This particular area has a lake, swamp, creek and a farm, so there’s much to see and do. After a scare with some snakes, and dashing through the trail, I came upon the swamp area. I’ve gone to that swamp many times, but this particular day was beyond amazing! Turtles were EVERYWHERE! I never knew that area even had turtles (or snakes for that matter) and I was in awe. I also came upon some loquacious frogs and napping geese, which are always a treat to watch. It makes me wonder, what else is hiding in the water that I have yet to discover?

After I finished walking my dog, I went on over to the farm, which was the original reason I left the house. A Farm in springtime is magical! I not only discovered the new precious lambs, but I saw some old friends in the horses, goat, hogs, chickens and even the cows. I was almost brought to tears when I saw how big last years newest bovine had grown. I took photos then, and I took photos now to show how the little calf has grown into a fine specimen, still hanging on to it’s mother’s side. Nature in spring, or the beginning of thereof, is a beautiful thing that I look forward to year after year.
