A Ride in the Country

Late Sunday afternoon we decided to take a ride.  The day had been very rainy but it had stopped and away we went.  Here are some of the things we saw on our ride.
Raindrops on roses 
Cattle in a field of buttercups 
A heron on a tin roof.  What?  How does he hold on and not slide right off? 
He is reflected in the wet roof 
A 1935 or 36 Ford Five Window Coupe - customized
A field of Ornamental Alium (onion) 

They wave in the wind like magic wands
A very happy goat 
A 1930s Rolls Royce convertible - just sitting alongside the road. 

 It was a very nice ride

OH my I would have loved to see the field of Alum. How beautiful. I am looking for some to put in my garden. You got some wonderful pictures. I just love a drive out like that and spotting so many lovely things. A happy day

What a great variety of interesting things along your drive!
I guess the alium are my favorite!

Your photos just SING the colors they represent! I adore that goat! Next to the magnificent shot you took of the herons last summer, I think this is my favorite!

When I read raindrops on roses I thought the next photo would be whiskers on kittens. Can you hear the song?
The aliums are beautiful. I can't imagine seeing a whole field of them. Wow.

Fun ride! I wonder if the cattle think that munching buttercups is a treat. Love the scampering goat.

I would give anything to have a field of allium - I've just been looking at bulb catalogs to order some for planting as most of mine seems to have disappeared from the beds - voles aren't supposed to like them, perhaps a good weeding session to free them up to the sunshine would help! Yes, my garden is getting away from me and needs major work!

What a lovely ride in the country JoAnn - you always spot fabulous things to share with us. A 1930's RR, wow! I'd be jumping like that happy goat if I could ride around in one of those beauties!
