An Iowa Farm Visit

 A visit to my friend, Donna's, Longview Farm
was most delightful.  How fun to meet Donna and
her family face to face.
 I had dreamed of one day visiting Spencer's Tea Room here.
 Our Garden Room at the B&B was beyond beautiful.
 For a tea lover, being greeted with this beautiful pot of tea
and delicious tea goodies was one of the highlights of our visit here.
And of course a visit with these sweet noses and
curious faces was pure delight.  I would have loved
giving them a hug, but they weren't so sure they wanted to get close.

Thanks Donna and your family for a visit we will always cherish.

We are in Kansas now (the land of Oz) and will share more of our visit
along the way in the next week.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there.
May you have a blessed day.

Happy Mother's Day to you too! I was surprised to see some familiar posts on your site this morning!! I only wish I had moved my old red farm truck before the picture shot! ha...

Don is out of town right now; he went to visit Chase with the boys -- I copy/pasted the picture of the cow scene and said, "Isn't this dreamy??" I am wondering if he will recognize his own cattle?! Will keep you posted!!

It was a delight to meet you ... looking forward to more posts!!

Safe travels!
Donna

I'm so happy you got to visit Donna. I don't know if I'll ever travel to Iowa, but if I do she'll be a MUST see!

Totally charming. Rick has Iowa roots -- I'll have to share this with him!
