We have had a very nice week in Michigan, the asparagus is sprouting, and hubby is on a mission to pick as much of it as he can find. 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.
All I have to do is look in the direction of poison ivy and I’m covered in it. 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 think hubby knows every backroad and asparagus picking place there is within a 60 mile radius of our house and he can spot the smallest sprout growing amongst the grass. 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 do however have the eye for spotting things I love and red barns and cows are on that list. I’ve never seen a red barn that I didn’t love, they just scream country living at it’s best to me.
I lived in the city once for about 2 years and hated ever minute of it, I know many people love city living but it’s not for me. I love the open space, fresh air, and slow paced lifestyle of living in the country.
I want to walk outside and see the stars at night with no city lights, fog, or smog. I love to hear the frogs croaking at night, the coyotes howling, and the birds sings at dawns light.
Yep its certain I’m a country girl for sure. I wouldn’t want to be any other place on earth, I love my life, my home, my family, and my country roots.
