“Farm living is the life for me”

I’m having fun hanging out with the farm animals. Having not grown up around them, I find them interesting. With that said, it’s fun to watch them for a while and then go home to my house near the city in Tampa. I’m not sure if I would love them if I had to do the chores that go with keeping them.   These were all from my trip to Sweetfields Farm north of Tampa one Sunday morning in late May.

Can I take one home with me???

This goat was chilling early in the morning.

Cute baby goats also chilling.

While Mom was being fed by the tourist, one of the babies decides to get a meal as well.

At Sweetfields Farms, where we walked through the sunflower maze, everyone was going crazy over the baby goats. You can feed the goats so the babies were getting close to the fence. It makes you think “I want a baby goat!”. Then reality hits and you don’t want grown goats living in your tiny backyard in the city. But it was fun watching them play that morning.

Sunny day in the sunflower field

I found a new place!  For a limited time in April and May, Sweetfields Farm has a sunflower maze. The farm also has, surprise, farm animals! And vegetables and other flowers but the big draw is the fields of sunflowers.  Brett and I drove north of the Tampa airport on a Sunday morning. It took us about 35 minutes to get to the farm so we were there right before they opened. We did the sunflower maze first thing and I’m glad we did because the heat started to set in and I probably would not have wanted to walk through there near lunchtime. We had a great morning and I took tons of pictures. The above was taken with my phone as we were parking.


The last picture is a pano I took with my phone. We were right in the middle of the maze at a dead-end.
