ABOUT THE COVER
This cover by Backwoods Home Magazine’s longtime artist, Don Childers, features a young girl watching a small herd of cows. In the distance, the orchard is beginning to blossom and a patch of wildflowers bloom in front of the house. Spring is here! Later, her parents will milk the cows and she’ll get to play with the newborn calf.
