24th Summer...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 27 August 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

...Linde came high into the alps, to tend the cows at this Alm.
It was hard work, but she was in her glory.
You'll see her again in a couple of days.
This day she had a young assistant.
I only wish I had a way to share Linde's infectious laughter!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

this is an age-old alpine activity that you've witnessed here, and i remember "making hay" on the alm meadows when on holiday with my parents in salzburg province ... ah, the sweet smell of the fresh hay ;-)))

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Wonderfully captured, although a shot of hard work with that lovely backdrop, they seem to have transmitted their laughter through your lens Judy

@Doug: Thanks, Doug ... glad the laughter came through! ;D

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great capture of these two tending to the fields! What a view that surrounds them. I always thought of you as having an infectious laugh, Judy. Don't know why. Maybe it's your infectious smile? :-)

27 Aug 2013 9:20pm

@Steven: Wow ... thanks, Steven. I don't have the infection laughter that Linde did, but hopefully joy comes through in some manner. ;D

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

For a second there I thought you caught a shot of me working in the yard. ;-)
