 I couldn't stand it any more so I went out to plant the seeds that I have
been collecting all winter. As I was sitting there, minding my own business
and enjoying the sunshine, I heard a cow snort.
I looked up to see this!

I went into the house to get my camera and noticed that there were more
cows watching me than I thought! To be fair, Mickey came out at one point and rolled 
around in the dirt--and, they always come over when the cats are out--but
he didn't stay long.

Life is interesting when you live rural!

Hi Betty, What an interesting experience to see all these cows right next to your garden! Wow, very interesting indeed! Well, it sounds like Spring is underway in NZ. I paused to reflect on your mention of saving seeds all through the winter. I just find it fascinating to think about how this planet has two hemispheres and seasons at different times. Hope you have a great springtime! Thanks for stopping by my blog and your kind comment. Best regards from Seattle!

The cows want to know what's going on. I hope the seeds you went out to sow germinate and produce some lovely flowers. Rural living must be great.

Cows are interesting animals. Shame we eat them.

Stealth cows! That's a new one for me - I wonder how long they were standing there before the one snorted to get your attention? It looks like you already have a lovely garden - can't wait to see how it looks when your new seeds germinate. Happy Spring!

I can just imagine them tip-toeing towards you when you weren't looking.
Love the photos of them also.

My! That's funny. I guess it was also a bit startling. Great photo though.

We live rural, too, and love it. I was raised on a dairy farm and love cows. :)

I love it! We have so many cows around. I could hear them last night, as well as cows mooing!

A little unsettling at times...the curiosity of cows :) Your gardens will be waking up, and mine are settling down for a long winter's nap. Happy planting.

Hallo Betty,
it's nice to see cows next to the own garden. Cows are very beautiful animals and curious otherwise. Thanks for visiting our blog.
I wish you a nice week!

That net as fence seem not to be strong, i wonder they are deterred by that, very disciplined cows. I smiled visualising them looking at you when you still did not notice, so a cow snort for attention, hahaha.

I love this post! It's nice to read about planting seeds in your neck of the woods, while we head towards winter here, and your cow visitors looking over you is hysterical. Maybe they want to garden too! Have a great week!

Linda said...

Well, hello cows! What are you looking at?

Heather{Our Life In a Click} said...

What beautiful views!

KL said...

This is so funny :-D. Any reason why they come and stand in line and watch you? Perhaps they want all those tasty plants?

Maggid said...
