A Walk to the Mailbox

It’s been a long winter in Kentucky.

Considering we had snow yesterday (March 6th), you could say I’m just a little more than ready for spring.  Just before the weather turned chilly, I took an autumn walk down the long gravel road to the mailbox.  I thought I’d share a few nature scenes that blessed me along the way because I really, really need to be reminded of the beauty of warmer weather right about now.

We don’t raise tobacco anymore, but lease our barns out for local farmers to hang theirs for drying.

Mommas and their babies are always busy in the fields.

Hills for grazing mean hills for walking.  My walk to the mailbox isn’t an easy one!

Here is a peek back up the hill to my house in the background (behind the trees.)

Just off the path is one of our favorite places to explore – the creek bed.  Lots of wonderful nature moments have taken place along this winding little creek.

As I approach the end of the road, one of our busy hawk friends darts off right in front of me.

Are you ready for spring, too??


  1. Loved taking a walk down to your mailbox with you! Yes, very ready for spring! That was our first real snow this winter yesterday. Now I can move on to Spring 🙂

  2. What beautiful landscape. I too am ready for spring. I am in upper middle Tennessee. Today the snow is finally gone. I am ready to plant the garden. Stroll in the field and woods, hear the birds singing. Ahhhh, how the Lord gives us different seasons, that way we are ready and appreciate the next.

  3. Thanks for posting! I was beginning to forget how beautiful Kentucky is 6 months out of the year 🙂 I do love the snow covered hills and fields, but it’s about time for some leaves on these naked trees! Can we join you for a nature walk this spring?

  4. What a lovely walk! Spring began here in Florida a month ago. We are officially on “Spring Break” March 1-31. Enjoy spring!
