maple days ...

we were fortunate to have a beautiful, sunny day
for our traditional maple syrup farm visit
the wind was cool
but the warm sun had the sap running freely
there was a gap in the wire fencing just large enough so I could snap a photo of this gorgeous turkey
 
we admired his stunning colours as he strutted around his pen confidently
and then we walked towards the cattle ...
and
fell
in
love
{BIG time}
the calves took turns licking their mama
who was basking in the sunshine
pure contentment
the piglets were playing
and so funny to watch
{hadn't noticed the two different tails until I uploaded the photos}
another watchful eye ~
and a precious new life xo
and flocks of happy, chubby, chirping sparrows
helped make it the perfect day ♥
May you always be connected
with Earth & Sky~
drawing energy
from both
