Cows

We buy our meat and farm products at a farmers shop. This farmer is at the outskirts of our town and has a shop, lots of cows and he also makes his own cheeses. You can buy a lot of different things in his shop, such as local products and biological products.
This Saturday the farmer let everone know that the cows were going to go outside again after a long winter. So we went there armed with our camera and we weren't the only ones.

 Running out into the meadow for the first time this year

 Happy, running cows

 'I feel like dancing'

 Just feeling happy

 Just a pretty sight



 Never seen cows run and jump like that


A lot of people came to watch the cows, not sure the cows were all too happy about that though but I'm sure they're used to it

Thursday Challenge; Two

Today the Thursday Challenge is about "TWO" (Twins, Two of Anything,...)

I was just too late when the toads in my garden were together just now (one ran off when I came out with my camera, never knew they could run) so I have to dig into my archive.

Thursday Challenge; Peaceful

Time for another Thursday Challenge and this week's challenge is;
"PEACEFUL" (Calming, peaceful nature, park, or urban scenes,...)


I don't know why but this place is magical. It is by far the most peaceful place I've seen in the world even though it's an ancient burial place. It's quiet, still, peaceful. You really can come to peace there. I've been here around 4 times now and this place does that to me every time!
