Milk run...

Yesterdays excursion to pick up the milk turned joyous!
I brought Regina along so we could take the dogs for a walk
and then afterwards it was off to the farm.
The 'girls' were in the barn chomping down on fresh hay.
Regina was very pleased to meet them...
You know how W.C Fields once said:
"Never work with children or animals" ?
I think part of it is because they'll upstage you every time,
but it's also evident in these pictures that they tend to move around a lot!
The barn is a bit dark as well but I kind of like these photos.
It gives me the sense of the characters of these girls quite well...munchy, bossy and curious...
Look at these gorgeous sunflowers and glads that VV was putting down
by the road for sale!!
 We were lucky enough to bring home a few other goodies with the milk...
By the way, the top 3" in the milk jug is cream!
Yeah baby! Real....thick...cream!
My veggie garden has been shite this year so I'll just keep on
supporting the local growers, doing what they do best...
As you can see I had already had 2 big salads before I took some photos, so
the mixed greens are just about gone.
The tomatoes were absolutely delicious!
Warm and juicy!
I'll make some of those beans for dinner tonight...
That there is homemade cheese!
Oh so creamy and tasty...
And if we only had 'smellivision' on our computers, you
would be in heaven with the scent of fresh basil!
I'm as happy as a clam!
