We couldn't resist sharing some of our favorite images to help you get to know your way around, and maybe fall in love with our farm just a little bit.... It also gives me a chance to show things from the other side of the lens (somehow most of those fiber arts, historic clothing, and interpretive history photos have me in them) and share my viewpoint. Enjoy your virtual tour - if you're planning a trip to Loudoun, let us know!

Welcome to winter at Willow Hawk Farm. Just a few more yards to the front door. Fresh fallen snow in the early morning somehow makes home more inviting, doesn't it?
Meanwhile, out in the "back 4," the sheep aren't particularly concerned, except to make sure the grain and hay is delivered on time... by us, of course.
And, of course, winter is the time for lambing, and all sorts of sentimental moments. The very new mother of twins is Ruth.
Meet Blaze, the Border Collie, who absolutely adores snow. The only thing better is snow frisbee. Unless, of course, there are sheep in the vicinity....
Winter provides some of the most spectacular scenes along Goose Creek, and an ice storm can create glittering crystal landscapes that take your breath away (as well as your footing).
Even dried wildflowers take on a crystaline delicacy that causes your gaze to linger.
A couple of warm days with a bit of sun can coax even Goose Creek in winter back into view. A winter thaw? Or a hint of the spring to come?
The quality of light shifts with the seasons, and spectacular winter afternoons like this can stop you in your tracks to run for the camera in hopes of capturing nature's display in that flickering instant before it's gone again.
One of the first signs of spring at Willow Hawk Farm, along with the crocus and daffodils, is the overnight appearance of a profusion of plum blossoms.
Virginia bluebells along Goose Creek are a sure sign that spring has arrived! The abundance of wildflowers here provides endless opportunities for us to learn more about our corner of the world, untouched by golf courses and soccer fields.
Another one of those "I see the light!" moments. The sky here has a special quality, and dramatic displays like this get my attention year round.
Nothing like an early summer morning to observe the tiny details. This bumblebee seems to be enjoying the field bindweed (I knew it had to be good for something!).
Summer moves into full bloom, the late spring lambs graze alongside mom, and we have a brief period of leisure.
We can even relax and enjoy the passing of sunset into evening.
Late summer on Goose Creek has a cooling serenity, even when the water is at near record lows that expose the remnants of the old mill race. The mill race is that stone wall that stretches across the creek toward the background.
Late summer storms can roll in quickly, providing some dramatic light effects on the way in.
No, you're not seeing double, there are two Border Collies. Meet Molly (in the foreground). Molly and Blaze are quite the duo, and keep their sheep and goats well in hand. No sheep farmer should be without one or two....
Goose Creek on a clear fall day sends an invitation. Time to go get the canoe!
