Experience the Adventure

Today’s Random 5 Friday Post has to do with the Nurture Photography Props of Green and Adventure.  A Rancher and His Wife live an adventurous life, we never know what will greet us when we step outside in the morning.  Nor do we know what we will find when we get home in the evening.  Case in point, the yearling heifer bulls escaped, again.  After a huge day of raking and baling hay we ended up chasing bulls and fixing fence last evening.  Always an adventure.

1.  The prairie and countryside continues to be green and beautiful!  The timely rain showers we are catching are a true blessing.

2.  Monday morning The Rancher and I went to check the corn.  This is the second year we have planted corn.  It’s a fun adventure to watch the crop grow!

3.  Don’t let your responsibilities, worries or lack of confidence hold you back from adventure.  Live life’s journey and move forward; believe impossible things!

4.  I think that wild sunflowers have a sense of adventure.  They grow wherever they please.  They grow despite the conditions.  Dry or wet they will show up and fight for survival.  They are nature’s rebel!

5. Life is a journey and adventures are the extraordinary experiences that we have. These activities help to shape us into the people we are today.  The good, the bad, the precious and the ugly they are all a part of life.

What makes your life an adventure?  Are you an adventure seeker?

    Love your shots this week. Big fan of sunflowers 🙂

    Homesteading makes life interesting. My girls have always managed to keep me on my toes and bring some adventure 🙂

  2. Buttons says:

    Wise words my friend and awesome shots. Have fun haying I hope we get a couple of weeks of hot and dry and we will get finished faster. Break downs and rain are making for challenges. I must admit I am starting to get a little tired:) Take care. Hug B

    The corn is as high as your rancher’s eye, too! We got a little shower on our corn earlier this week, which perked it up a little. I loved your flower shots, too!

    The corn is getting BIG! Love the wild sunflowers. They do grow any where and every where. They are so pretty.

    Shoot, Kim beat me to the line I wanted to use! 😉
    The sunflower is beautiful and I really like the quote you put with it. I am so NOT an adventure seeker. I like order and schedules and no surprises! LOL!!

    Cameron and I are both volunteer fire fighters. we have a 1500 gallon fire truck and a 5000 gallon tanker truck on the ranch. And since I am such a sissy (lol), I operate the tanker. And yep. we, my sister in law, her friend, my son and me painted the barn in the hottest darn week in August! It was a mess before hand. Scrape, primer, paint, 2 coats. 🙂

    I love sunflowers, they are just such a bright and cheery flower. I hope you are doing well, I know you are busy, but hopefully you are getting some down time in!

  8. Nancy says:

    Loving your theme here Robyn! I’m so much an introvert usually — I do need to get out more. Thank you dear! xo

    • Robyn says:

      The more I am home working, the more I enjoy getting out. After spending hours and hours sitting in a tractor I think I need some face to face social time. An introvert’s breakthrough?

      Hope your weekend is grand.

  9. Whoa, look at that corn! My boys would have fun playing hide and seek in that.

  10. Snap says:

    Wise words here and beautiful photos. The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye … or your rancher’s eye! 😀

  11. Beth says:

    gorgeous blooms. i am not sure i have ever met your husband. nice to meet him. you both must work so hard out in the fields. it has been so humid around here – hope you are not too warm out there working. ( :

  12. Maggid says:

    YES!!!! I consistently “believe impossible things” – the results are fabulous.

    Happy Friday from one adventurer to another!

  13. I love wild sunflowers. I have a couple that have popped up in my flower pots on the porch…I guess we’ll see how that turns out.

  14. haha – I used to be a great adventure seeker! But now, as a mom, I’m a worrying freak! I need to remember to have fun!!

  15. Lovin’ those sunflowers….saw my first one yesterday. I don’t have to tell you about how I adventure…do it frequently without hesitation. Yesterday I measured the corn around here and it had to be at least 7 feet tall already….rain is a good thing.

  16. Sharon says:

    Your life is fascinating to this city girl! I would love the animals. Your post has such an upbeat tone. Thanks for cheering me on!

  17. Hi Robyn, I love adventure and a bit of chaos and roller coasters. That’s why I live 1/2 year in Canada and 1/2 in England where I race minis on the wrong side of the road…lol. But I also love to grow flowers and veggies and your corn looks so fantastic. Wish I had more room to grow veggies. I have one city garden and one country garden but I’m not in either country for a full growing season so the gardens have become more-or-less spring and fall gardens. My children get the nice fruits and veggies in Vancouver though. They like that. 🙂

  18. Anne Payne says:

    wow! are you going to have a corn maze? it looks great. lovely sunflowers…one of my favorite flowers of all time!

  19. Cheryl M says:

    Oh how your lovely images and words cause me to miss the country and farm life. I truly enjoyed this post!

  20. abrianna says:

    Your corn is looking good! Glad things are green all over for you.

    I have forgotten about the Nurture Summer challenge. Maybe I can catch up?

  21. Rebecca says:

    Great shots, I love the wild sunflower! Where my parents live in England there are a lot of wild poppies that just show up in the fields, sometimes taking over half the field with their bright red petals. I remember looking for them as I drove through the country roads to go to work in a nearby town.

    Thanks for taking part in the Nurture Photography Challenge!

  22. Love that photo of the iris! I miss my irises back at our old house in Missouri. 🙁 None of the flowers I planted here at our new place in Washington are growing. lol

    Thanks for joining us in the Nurture Photography Challenge! I can’t wait to see what you come up with for our new theme: Red/Treat. Have a great weekend! 🙂
