Holsteins at Pasture

Life in Christian County, Kentucky...





I'd better post this photo as it's rapidly going out of season. I took this about two weeks ago, and the white flowers in this pasture have been frosted now.

With a few more Holsteins standing broadside, maybe a few Hampshire pigs, a U.S. flag flying on top of the silo, and the name of the farm painted on one of the barns, I can imagine this farm scene painted in Charles Wysocki style.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
