I'm a country girl

I grew up on a farm and have always loved the country! I'm glad I live close enough to visit the city and shop there, but the country is where I want to live! 

This little sign is in front of my neighbors chickens.  I thought it was pretty funny to see in front of a chicken coop, but I liked the saying:
"A day in the country is worth a month in the city"



This is one of the reasons I like country life.  
Seeing cows as you drive makes a person smile!



These 2 are pretty cute!

I think country folk are friendly, the air is cleaner (most of the time...except for the occasional farm smell), it's so much quieter and there are lots of barns to see!
What about you - are you a country or a city person?

I like city life for convenience sake, but at heart, I'm a country girl. I was raised on a ranch in Montana, and can't get it out of my system even now.

I think you know what I am. Country girl all the way. You know what they say "You can take a girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl." But it would even be pretty difficult to get me out of the country. I love everything about it.

Country girl! I like that sign in front of the chicken pen. Isn't it funny how different parts of the country have different cows. All the cows on my road are black all over. Closer to Raleigh they have black cows with the band of white around their middles. The cows we raised were red with white faces. The best part of living in the country is the quiet with just the sounds of nature.

Today I went pick up apples for applesauce and as soon as I stepped out of the car I could smell the country! Just loved it! I love the country...

Country all the way. I don't like city, I don't like big crowds, I don't like concrete and brick walls....I want to be surrounded by land and mountains, and cows and chickens and red barns and fields of crops :)

Being raised in a fairly big city and living now in a town of 1200, I'm gonna have to say, I'm a country girl! I love it.

Where we live is just perfect. On the edge of a small-sized tourist town (William Shakespeare's birth place - Stratford upon Avon) and on the edge of the country with wonderful views and sheep and cows and slow-moving tractors!

I guess we live with a little of both, which is just right for us. Your farm photos remind me of days from my childhood visiting grandma.

I live in the country but close enough to a town to feel I kind of live a dual life. I wrote a dull life first. :D

I do love having horses in the filed in front of our house, but I also love the fact I'm only 20 minutes drive from a busy town. I get the best of both worlds.

I'm a city girl that's lived in the country for 30 years! ha. But I love it..it's fresh, quiet, beautiful and peaceful.

Brooke said...

i'm definitely a country girl. subdivisions make me clausterphobic.

Terri said...

Got to be a country girl

Sadie said...

COUNTRY! I don't know how I would deal with the lack of space. Cities are fun for a while, but I would miss the green pastures all around me!

I'm a country visitor and a city dweller!

Lauren Davenport said...

I live in the city but take long walks into the country. I love the peaceful country views.

I grew up in the city but most of my adult life have lived in the country and wouldn't go back to the city for anything!!! Country life is the best!!!!

Angie said...

Country girl. I love your pictures! The two cows are cute! I love country animals.

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

I'm a country girl... but I do admit, the thought of living within walking distance of great restaurants and maybe even a Trader Joe's has it's appeal!

Gloria said...

Love yours picture I live in the country now about 6 years:) i think is spevial.and like it now when I go to the town I dont like so much.

What beautiful pictures these are of the cows and the cornfields. I'd take the country anytime. Where I live (Bacolod City) is a rural-urban mix, more city but the sugarcane plantations, rice and corn fields are only a few miles away. Metro Manila is really a megapolis...

Enjoyed this brief visit to your blog today.

Love

ps....I consider myself a 'city girl'. I love being in the country near farms, but I live for the amenities of the city. [not the noise]

Mari said...

I love the country...but live in the city. If I could afford to live in the country I would move in a heartbeat.

Pamela said...

When we moved to the country, the first night we stayed my daughter said, "Momma look how many more stars we have here." Living in the city the buildings shielded the stars!

I'm a city girl but I love spending time in the country. I especially love cows. They never fail to bring a grin to my face!
