Happy Sunday in photos. Just wanted to share a little of the beautiful state of Georgia with my readers and followers.

Having grown up on a farm, there’s scarcely a better place in the world IMO to take my grandkids than to the local farms in our area.  I always thought I’d own my own farm one day and I was on my way to making that happen when the accident with my back happened and life changed dramatically for me.

Today’s photos are of Abby’s grandpa’s farm which surprisingly is in the city, a very small town in the middle of Georgia.  It’s one of her favorite places to visit and I take her as often as possible.  I believe animals and kids go hand in hand.  The only thing lacking on this farm is a horse to ride but there are a lot of antique farming tools that horses used to haul.

We love walking through all of the fruit trees and picking and eating fresh fruits straight from the trees.  Especially the pomegranates when they’re ripe.

And of course, a farm is not complete without some milk cows.  I’ve tried milking cows and goats, many times in my lifetime but I’ve not mastered it yet.

There are plenty of wooden birdhouses hanging in the trees and on fence posts as well as martin guards hanging about.

The male peacocks are absolutely stunning.  Abby and I both have collected many a peacock feather laying around.

Farmers in our area depend on their John Deere tractors and accessories.  We have a local John Deere store and the kids love visiting it to buy their John Deere toys.

There are always chickens and roosters about and some get a little sassy with us and try to chase us.

And the ducks are always following us around waiting for us to throw out food to them.  Abby loves watching them swim and I have to admit, so do I.

Grandpa even has a chalkboard-painted porch floor for all of the kids to draw on when they are ready to find some shade and a place to sip on good old sweet iced tea.

There are lots of antiques on the old sheds and in the sheds.  I could look through them each and every time and still miss something.

The cows follow us along the fence line, they’re very curious.  And the calves are a favorite to see. There are always baby animals of some sort to see.

A little further down from the animals is an old dairy barn that is still in use to this day despite being hit by a tornado.  And there are fields galore always being planted or picked.

More ducks.  They’re everywhere and they’re always headed to the ponds to swim.

I had to include the old train station down the road.  It’s a favorite place for Instagrammers to take photos at.
