Musings of herb gardening, interior decorating, vintage finds and just the beautiful things in life........

It's true. I live in the middle of corn and soybean fields, farms, and barns.
I live in Indiana.
As much as I would love to tell you I live in an awesome urban city like NYC or Paris, I don't and probably never will. I say probably as if I ever get the chance I am outta here. My family keeps me here and family is everything to me.
Yesterday Mom and I attended Ag Day for our county. Ag is Agriculture and that is what Indiana is all about. We toured a local greenhouse/nursery and also a Dairy farm.
The highlight of the Dairy farm was seeing a three hour old calve. The lowlight was the smell and I hope I didn't offend anyone by putting my scarf over my nose.
These calves are 2 days old and still getting around on wobbly legs.
This is the udder room and a big process. This farm has 800 cows and milk them three times a day. The funny thing is I don't like dairy products very much and have to have a lot of chocolate in my milk to be able to drink it. When I was a kid and 'forced' to drink my milk I would always hold my nose closed to help disguise the taste.
Kinda hard to tell what this is......it's the back of the cow's legs while being milked by the machinery.
The greenhouse is awesome and an environment I love.....and much better smelling.
Seedlings being watered..............
Tomatoes and other veggies ready for gardens.
Mom getting a whiff of vanilla scented helitrope..............
And a new variety of petunia that I must have.....after our frost free date in May.
