Fair Oaks has an impressive orchard with a variety of citrus fruits. Rick helped me gather a crate full to take home.
As Henry and I drove around the farm in our golf cart, we found these young cows. The neighbor's cattle invaded. Who can blame them? I want to live there too.
Rick keeps the bonfire under control. Each time I go, there is a new activity. It's always fun to discover the plan for the day. A place this big needs constant care and it is lovingly provided by Rick and his team of college boys who put in long hours of labor there.
Today's plein air painting. It's always fun to study painting at Fair Oaks. Henry naps beside me in the cart and I listen to the Sandhill Cranes and the crows as they fly overhead. Today I saw a paint of Bald Eagles. They are much bigger than they look in the sky. Beautiful and majestic.
For lunch we had Venison Italian sausage, hunted and made by farm manager Mark. It was really delish!! What a treat. We ate alfresco and enjoyed looking at the trees and watching the clouds go by. There is nothing I would rather do than be at Fair Oaks. I am so lucky that they put up with me.
