Our Scottish Highland cow, Galena, gave birth to Charlie about 3 hours prior to this photo. Imagine our surprise to find him swimming next to her! She then came to shore so that he could nurse. —Kimberly Mayo, Seagrove, Randolph EMC
Tulips ... what a wonderful sign of spring! I captured this beautiful photo while visiting North Carolina's 'gem' last spring—the Biltmore House in Asheville. —Janelle Lambert, Goldston, Randolph EMC

During a beautiful winter morning sunrise at Ocean Isle Beach, I watched the sunrise over the ocean, saw birds stalking their breakfast in the water and loved being the only human stirring on the beach. —Linda Chamblee, Raleigh, Brunswick EMC
I grew up at this horse farm in Lincoln County. Built in the late 1960's, it is an old big red barn that has stood the test of time. I am blessed to have been raised in a barn under Carolina blue skies. —Diane Baker, Iron Station, EnergyUnited
I was taking one of my dogs for a walk and stumbled on this really nice tree. —Brandon Gross, Cleveland, EnergyUnited
A beautiful swallowtail stopped to have a drink at our flowering cherry tree. —Alora Edwards, Aberdeen, Lumbee River EMC

My grandsons, Mason and Brody Blell, love country life. They help me a lot on the farm. Special boys from Carolina Country. —Herman Spivey, Sanford, Central EMC

They don't make metal chairs like this anymore. When my husband’s family passed away, we brought these old chairs home to our garden for a shady spot to rest plus memories from days gone by. —Donna Turner, Bostic, Rutherford EMC
As I bike past an abandoned old barn on a crisp spring March morning, I check the area for raptors—Harriers Red-tail and Red-shoulder. —Christine Stoughton-Root, Merritt, Tideland EMC
