A Barn Below the Mountains







The days grow long, the mountains beautiful
The south wind blows
Over blossoming meadows
Newly arrived swallows dart
Over the steaming marshes
Ducks in pairs drowse on warm sand 

Tu  Fu, 8th century

    I always want to draw or sketch them.

    I've always been a "barn person." What a great photo. You mentioned your rocks on my blog. I see them in your header. The only negative about making a rock garden is that some of the rocks you want are too heavy. My handyman is moving about 25 miles away so I'm sad about that.
