Project 52: January

January on the farm means warm, sunny days, late evening walks, and a spectacular gumboot tan. The days at the start of the year are a chance to relax and and spend extra quality time with the furkids before the new year kicks into gear. The dogs love to swim in the drains during their adventures down the farm, and are always a bit scruffy and covered in biddbids at this time of year. But there’s plenty of days ahead to sort that out. While the rest of the country is at the beach, I prefer to spend my evenings lying in the long grass with my best friends to watch the sun set through the trees. It’s back to the real world next week, but with the light hanging around until 9pm, there’ll still be plenty of time for cuddles with the dogs at the end of the day.

    Awesome Kelly. What a great project! The bidibids are like magnets to our new pup. But it means she is getting used to some grooming early on! Love this photo. Life on your farm sounds idyllic with all that company 🙂ReplyCancel
