I'm joining in with Rhonda at Down to Earth for her regular Friday feature.
After our scare with the brown snakes this week, I have been reflecting on country life with kids. I can't imagine them living in a town or city! We live in a world of bonfires, caring for animals, gardening, playing outside and just generally getting grubby!
I know there are pros and cons for country and city life but this photo makes me feel good about our choice. They are four, five and eight and played happily for over an hour climbing and rolling off this bale of hay in winter! (no snake fears on this day) Soooooooo............ I will still be scared this summer and I'm contemplating whether my lavender hedge will survive when I cut off all of the bottom branches (and I will probably resemble a clucking mother hen when the children go outside in the warm weather), but life here is GOOD!
Thanks to my lovely blogging friends for your good snake advice!
