Finally a frosty morning!






And so the frost came. I've been waiting for a frosty morning and the other day was a gorgeous chilled morning. Crystals on cars, sheds and nature. Frozen in time, but just for a little bit until the sun came out and melted it all away.

The cows behind our house got very curious when I sneaked around with my camera (Imagine this: A woman in her polka dot fleece Pj's, hat and gloves sneaking around with a camera taking pictures in a time when most people are having their morning coffee... Sometimes I wonder what my neighbors think about me...).
 
They are such sweet creatures, the cows. I love having the cows around and these are young teenage girls. They can be challenging though, you have to be a bit careful. Suddenly they take off galopping up the hill. Or even worse is when they come rushing DOWN the hill. That makes me very nervous...

One morning I heard a big BANG and a big SNAP! And Ooops, they all got loose after tearing the electric fence down. Luckily my garden is fenced in so no cows got into our garden and stared at me through the kitchen window. But they started to wander on the street. We called the farmer who quickly came to rescue and put them all back in place.

Now the cows are gone, this year they just visited for not even 3 weeks. It is the mild weather that gave them the chance to stay on top of the mountain longer. I am sad that they already have left. I feel so in tuned with nature when they are around.

      Not many people get the chance to live so close by cows. It is a very special feeling.
      Happy Weekend!

  5. Nice pics and welcome in "winter".
    We already have snow here for a week and it is very cold-weather too.
    But kids are happy.
    And every thing is clean around us with the snow.
    Well, I like cows, so calming animals I think, but far, very far away from my garden...

  7. I totally have the same thought (as to what the neighbors think) when I'm out like that as well! lol I imagine they say "that crazy lady is at it again." ;D We've have quite a few frosty mornings already, a little unusual for here (Southern US) but expecting a warm up for the weekend (62F).I too like the background sounds of farm animals throughout the day. Happy frosty morn'!

  8. Love these pictures. I can just picture it the way you described...the fleeced, furtive photographer darting about lol! When I lived in rural northern Michigan, down the hill from our house was a cow pasture. As a small girl I was both fascinated and nervous about them. And the electrical fence was off more than not. ;)

  11. Having grown up on a dairy farm I have a special place in my heart for cows--they are very interesting. Yes I'm sure the neighbors often wonder about me as I walk about the property in some unusual clothing snapping photos
