Going Home to Autumn in Australia

Oh it is SO good to be home!!

After my mad dash to the States for visa and residency requirements, I cannot tell you how happy I am to be back on my beloved farm, hugging my dear ones tightly and basking in days that feel like the Indian Summers of my childhood in Canada.

This morning I had to go outside for a wander with our dog Fletcher, soaking up glorious sunshine and taking pictures of beauties such as this tree covered in papery pods. Any Aussies out there know what sort of tree this is?

Wildflowers are blooming again around my favorite fallen log and I want to sit there for a long time, eyes closed, face lifted to the sun.

The pure white Muscovy ducks are molting and the grass is covered with feathers and fluff. I think it’s the closest thing to snow I’ll see for a while.

My favorite part of this Autumn on the farm are my new baby goats born just a few days before I got back. They are twin girls named Flopsy (because she kept flopping on her bottom) and Lindt (because she’s the color of chocolate). They are wickedly cute and I love leaning on the fence at sunset watching them leap and gallop on their tiny spindly legs.

What season is it where you live? What is delighting you most about this time of year?

Pin It

Melody Goff - The babies are ADORABLE! I can just imagine the sort of mischief that they could muster up.   The picture of the feather is crazy-cool, the clarity is astonishing.

Barbara - I’mm so glad you love it here. We love having you here.

Jenny Freedman - It’s great that you couldn’t wait to be back in Oz! beautiful pictures- no wonder you miss the farm…and those cute little goats! 

Andrea and John - It’s spring here in Stavanger and we’ve barely seen any rain so far, which really helps when you’re moving! =)

Krista -  I love how the feather came out too, Melody!! The detail delights me no end. 🙂

Krista -  Thank you, dear, dear Barbara. Now that I’m “home” again I hope to visit you very soon. 🙂 XO

Hila - The baby goats are so adorable! Welcome home!! 🙂

Krista -  Oh yes, Jenny. 🙂 I could hardly bear being away. 🙂

Krista -  I’m so glad you’ve had so much sunshine for your move, Andrea!! That is VERY helpful. 🙂

Krista -  Thanks so much, Hila! 🙂 I am SO happy to be back! 🙂

Katy - So glad you got back safely! What a busy few weeks you’ve had! Those baby goats are just adorable! We’re having a bit of a crazy Spring, swinging between Summer and Winter weather, but I love the flowers, colors and freshness of this time of year 🙂

Ruth Dear - It’s supposed to be spring here in Seoul but in the past week we’ve had temperatures barely above 0oC, rain and even a light dusting of snow. I wish Spring lasted longer over here, It’s such a great time of the year, everything growing and blooming again and the days getting longer and warm days beginning. I thought British weather was bad but it’s much worse over here!

El - I’m so glad you’re enjoying Australia. The goats are adorable and I’m glad you’re having fun.

Ayngelina - It’s Spring here in Canada but oh so cold!

Deanna Bisaha - Oh, those goats are so cute. I feel like they could be the main characters in a children’s book. Its definitely spring here, after some April showers over the weekend, the sun is out. 

LindyLouMac - What a beautiful autumn to arrive home to, good to read you are now calling Australia home Krista

vanessa - Gorgeous images as always Krista. Australia certainly sounds like you’ve found your  “soul-home”.
Here in Spain it should be Spring, but hasn’t stopped raining, and will continue to do so all week:-(
I want to be where you are 😉
Sending Easter kisses Krista xx

Duchess - It’s early spring. We just celebrated our anniversary and our neighborhood is budding. Every tree is white, pink or yellow with spring flowers. 

Stevie - The goats are so cute! Have you read this amazing book, Goat Song?  The author and his wife move form the Greater New York area to a rural farm in Vermont I think to raise goats and learn how to make cheese.  Delightful. 

Lana - Those little goats are too cute! Glad you are back home and happy!x

Krista -  Thank you, Katy girl. It is heavenly to be home. 🙂 I hope your gorgeous English spring comes to stay very soon. 🙂

Krista -  Wow, Ruth, I had no idea the weather was like that in Seoul!! I’m definitely going to have to learn more about this country you’re in. 🙂

Krista -  I sure am, dear El. 🙂 I’m SO glad I’m here. 🙂

Krista -  That’s what I’ve heard, Ayngelina!! When I flew into Vancouver a couple of weeks ago it was SNOWING!! Brrr. 🙂

Krista - What a lovely idea, Deanna. 🙂 They are SO cute. I cuddled Flopsy yesterday and she is darling. 🙂

Krista -  It is definitely my home, dear Linda. 🙂 I love it here so very much and can’t wait to get my permanent residency. 🙂

Krista -  Thank you so much, Vanessa. What a beautiful way to put it: my “soul-home”. That’s exactly what it is. 🙂

Krista -  Happy Anniversary, dear Duchess!! 🙂

Krista -  I haven’t read it, Stevie, but you’re the second person to tell me of it so I simply must! 🙂 It sounds wonderful. 🙂

Krista -  So glad you like them too, Lana. 🙂 It’s lovely to be home!!

Cailins - baby goats! LOVE!!!!
