A Sea of Alpacas



The sweet alpacas have returned to the pasture that I often drive by.


The field no longer looks empty. Instead it's quite full.


Full of grace and beauty.


Full of poetry and motion.


They're like a song.


Soft and graceful.


And of perfect harmony.

I can't tell you how much their presence warms my heart.

P.S. Hubby took these pictures for me as I've been feeling a bit under the weather. xoxo

They really bring a serenity to the landscape, don't you think? I've always thought it would be great to have sheep grazing the nearby properties ~ so pretty and peaceful and little "green" lawn mowers, as well! I'm also under the weather, so hope that we BOTH are back to 100+% soon!

Alpacas remind me of curious little children really. They are full of charm, even with all that hair going in every which direction. Hope you can enjoy a quiet and restful weekend on the mend. Trina, you inspired me yesterday to take some quiet time, while I had it, at my potting bench. Thank you for that and thank hubby for sharing this sweet song. Lisa

Carmella Rayone said...

I'm with Janet here dear Trina. You are very lucky Mr. Country Farmhouse has such good taste & knows what to photograph in your absence. MOTH would be taking pics of his belly-button fluff, thinking it would make great blog posting material!!!

They are soooo sweet! I had one come up to me once and give me a little spit. I'm sure it was a compliment as he gave me a soft nudge... Hope you are feeling better soon. Cheers.. Susan :)

Hope you're feeling better now Trina..I love Alpacas too, we have lots of them here, for their wool and to protect our sheep from foxes. I've even been able to pat a few. They are wonderous creatures. Rachaelxx
