One of the few TV shows we can all agree on, at least for 20 minutes, is House Hunters International. It’s cool to ‘visit’ other countries, and great for the kids to see how other people live via what’s available in the houses for how much money. It also often underscores the stereotype of the Ugly American, a useful educational tool in manners.
It hit me the other day that (leaving out the whole tropical island thing) our family ‘pretend’ choses countries/areas that have exactly what we already have: the south of France, Italy, Greece, etc. One of our blog friends asked recently, after seeing a picture posted of the nearby hills: does it really look like that?
It reminded me that I’m lucky.
Add in more vineyards, olive groves, cows, milk goats, lavender farms, orchards, and a few picturesque old barns. There’s also the odd Llama here and there.
On the way to the barn the other day, I stopped and took pictures. This is some of what I see on my everyday drive. It’s pouring now. I’m glad I took these earlier in the week…
What’s on your barn drive? (Or around your barn!)
