A Found Heart

After a brief rain, I rounded the house to head to the barn one morning and found a heart at my feet.
Yes, I have hot pink rain/muck boots.


You know what they say, (the ant) home is where the heart is...

Oh - too funny! Some day I may let you see the black and white floral muck boots (wellies) that I used in Ireland...we are SO stylish! Great eye to see that ant hill!

Betty Roan said...

Oh you know I love your boots even though they are not ruby red, they do remind me of candy floss:)

Haha! You find a heart at your feet and I'm mainly looking at your feet.

c. Joy said...

Nice heart. The pink boots are very practical - you can see the fire ants crawling up you leg much easier - may have to borrow this idea.

DJan said...

Love your boots, but the ant heart, cute but a bit creepy crawly. :-)

parker said...

A Heart form is the sign of treasure, a welcome sign indeed!
The pink muckers is the sign of a classy Farm Girl!

rkbsnana said...

Wow!

Ms. Becky said...

I really like those pink wellies. And all the greens that are growing - a nice variation of textures. very cool photos. love the heart. happy day to you TWG.

ladyfi said...

Ah- that is lovely.

thesedaysofmine.com said...

How sweet! Must be a loving ant family. I don't have muck boots, and unless things change around here, I won't be needing them anytime soon!

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Cute!! Both the ant hill heart and the farm boots! I wish my farm boots looked that good. And CLEAN!!

EG CameraGirl said...

Lovely find!

Linda said...

The pink boots are great. The heart-shaped ant hill is interesting. The ants are pests. :)

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

sweet sweet... killer boots! =)

Ginger said...

Very nice heart...I love it! Looks like we may have the same kind of boots...except mine are lime green. I'm not big on anything pink. Reminds me of Pepto Bismal which I pratically lived on when I was a child. Yucky stuff! ;-)

Susan said...

Ah, isn't that cute, they love you!

Randy said...

Nice find.

Jan n Jer said...

Love those hot pink mucks! What Artsy ants you have in your neck of the woods!

Good play on words. Most people would never see anything like that at their feet let alone get a good picture of it.
Never heard of muck boots before!

Clytie said...

Ohmigosh, what an amazing heart! I've never seen an ant home heart ... until now!!! Good eye!!!

Thank you so much for sharing your heart - and your kindness. You bring tears to my eyes!

Furry Bottoms said...

Pink boots made me giggle. That is an ant hill?! Well, at least they're showing you appreciation for letting them be on your land!

Mamabug said...

A beautiful heart even though ants live in it!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

All this time I thought you went barefoot everywhere. :) Remember, love your (ant) neighbors!

Sall's Country Life said...

The queen of that hill said,"if we're going to set up a colony beside a nonogon House, we've got to come up with a unique shape for our colony!"
(and that's how she got to be Queen!)

Bev said...

Wow... an ANT heart... too cute... Home is where your heart is... too funny!!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Love the heart shaped ant hill...how cool is that?! I think your pink boots are just the thing for a gloomy, rainy day! If it keeps raining here, I'm going to have to get a pair.

Barbara said...

You've got a good eye! Love your pink boots, too!

Rohrerbot said...

I think the ant hill is neat....but the pink boots....even cooler:)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Love those boots - mine are just boring black.

Robin said...

T, cool!

Michaele said...

I love that you noticed and shared vs. stepping on it accidently with those hot pink boots.

Joy Tilton said...

The fire ants love you.. not a good thing! Do love the pink muck boots, snazzy!

Patty Woodland said...

Did you stomp it after you took the photo? I stomp ant mounds. I know they just build another one but it is still somehow satisfying.

Patty Woodland said...

Oh, mine are blue with green polka dots

SweetMarie said...

It is a heart! Love that you noticed it! I'm lovin' your boots! You go girl!

I can see the heart - very cool!!!
Oh and I love those pink boots. :))

Paula said...

Good going country girl. Always walk with your head down and your eye to the ground, you never know what you may see. My boots are brown and turquoise floral pattern and I wish it would rain so much I would need them.

Lindsjö taxar said...

Cool thing!! Ants made that?I like your muck boots!!

Julie G. said...

Sweet! Love your pink boots! A most happy post :)

eileeninmd said...

Cool find and I love your pink boots. Have a great evening!

Jerry said...

I knew ants were hardworking but not that they were artistic - must be a first for science (a bit like your wellies!).

Candy C. said...

Those are some pretty artistic ants you have there at the Run*A*Round! :)

DeanO said...

Sweet

Daffycat said...

You're sure not gonna lose those boots in the brush, are you?

I bet those ants were just buttering you up.

Karen said...

Love your boots, and that's an awesome ant hill!

Susan said...

Ah, such romantic ants.. love it :D)
Gorgeous boots too!

Jane said...

Pink Crocs and a ant heart!
Does it get any better than that?
Did you help the heart shape, or did those ants present it to you as is?
This has to be a sign of "lucky" days for you.

*thanks, the short haired girl is cute. I liked her outfit, and her spirit of escaping the brothers and the parents.
She had no idea I had the long lens on her. Made my day.

A Quiet Corner said...

Discovering that hill was such a find! Dare I say, love is in the air?...:)JP

Lynne said...

Interesting Heart land . . . And the viewing with "Pink!"

Laura said...

excellent discovery!

Sue said...

It's wonder you saw it! I probably would have stepped right over it. Ants are clever aren't they? Sue

Fireblossom said...

Girl, you've left me speechless. Many have tried and failed, but you did it!

Angela said...

Now that is amazing! And just think of this, the ants love you!

lisa. said...

Indeed you did!
Mother Nature is truly amazing.
I love those pink boots!

Kelly said...

....aaaahhhhh....it is a perfect little heart. Mama Nature must love you!!! (...or she just wants those hot pink boots!)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Did someone proclaim today as the "Ant Hill HEART" Day????? I've seen at least 2-3 blogs today featuring heart ant hills... How 'bout that???? I didn't get the message!!!! ha
Hugs,
Betsy

Martha Z said...

Bad pun (or good depending on how you feel about puns).

Stewart M said...

What a nice find. I assume you find it easy to locate your boots, even in the dark!

Stewart M

PS: thanks for your words and thoughts. In the end everything was as peaceful as you could hope for.

Gillian Olson said...

What a great find, good eyes T.

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Ha, love the boots!!

Beth Niquette said...

LOVE it! What a beautiful little heart. I also love your pink boots. LOL

Happy GHT!

Book Dragon said...

love it! We live on top of a colony so I don't like the visitors but then again, they don't leave me hearts.

and what better time to wear a happy color (pink) then when you're mucking around in the mud? My daughter's rain boots were lime green. She was 20 at the time ;)

Cute boots girl! That's not a fire ant hill is it?

JM said...

Great find! Love watching those busy ant houses.

Livie and I love your boots!

What an unexpected place to find a heart!

You never know what you will find when you look at things closely! :-)

Thanks for your help this morning!

Jeevan said...

Lovely find and take!

Margie said...

Lovin' those pink rain boots and your find!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beauty is everywhere if you only look! Even in a hill of ants sometimes ... however here in Florida, those would probably be fire ants that would eat your beautiful pink garden shoes and whatever's inside them ;>)...

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Love those pink boots! And, the eyes that spotted the heart. blessings ~ tanna

heyBJK said...

How cool! That's not something you'd find every day. At least the ants aren't in the house.

Sandy said...

I have lavender muck boots....lol. Got mine at Target on clearance for $3....BARGAIN!!! Love the heart too.

Brianne said...

This is such a wonderful find - a heart at your feet, at the entrance to an ant hole. Who would've thought!?
