“Get the sheep!” I called to Fate as she stared at me eagerly, her tongue already long. The sheep and donkeys were busy grazing in the pasture. I looked to the house for a moment and saw Jon framed by the blossoming crab apple, watering the growing flowers.
I motioned with my hand for Fate to make another circle around the sheep and snapped a few photos.
Although our house sits on a main road, the side yard has always felt like a protected space to me. The placement of the house, barn and my studio along with the big old Birch and apple tree, create a circle that always feels to me like walking into a hug.
Watching Jon nurture that loving space fills my heart with gratitude that we are here together.
