So I decided to share with you some of the photos I snapped while we were out picking. Hubby asked me if I wanted to go asparagus hunting and I said no, I had so much work to get done at home and not enough time to do it in. Just as he was waking out the door I hollered, “I’m going”. I decided it was a perfect opportunity to see some sights and take a few photos of what summer in Michigan is all about. I left the asparagus picking up to him, I didn’t want to come in contact with any poison ivy.

So I was happy to just ride along with the windows down and enjoy photographing all the things I love about summer and country living.

I’m always saying I don’t see anything yet he seems to find it every time. Apparently I just don’t have the eye for find asparagus like he does.

I’ve never seen a red barn that I didn’t love, they just scream country living at it’s best to me.

I love the open space, fresh air, and slow paced lifestyle of living in the country.

I love to hear the frogs croaking at night, the coyotes howling, and the birds sings at dawns light.

    Dawn your pictures are just so stunning!! And I cannot believe your Hubs can find asparagus like that! I think that is the coolest thing! Your projects are always great and I am loving your rustic Summer porch so much!! Pinning this one and that one too!

    Dawn, y’all are so lucky to find asparagus growing wild. We have an asparagus bed and I get a few spears a day so I have to save up for about a week to have enough to cook! I’m pinning that red barn to my red barn board on Pinterest. I have a thing about them, too, because we had a red barn when I was growing up (and cows!)

      Jane, we get asparagus by the arms loads. I have tried to grow it without success. I do believe salting the soil heavily is the trick.

    Where do you live in Michigan? I lived there all through school – Ann Arbor and Big Rapids. I have to say, it’s beautiful here in southwest Virginia, but I am a bit homesick for my old home state.

      Grace I am in Bellevue a small village about 1 hour north of the boarder. Ann Arbor is about 1.5 hours north of me. I love Michigan ๐Ÿ™‚
