One of those early "Fall is in the Air" Late Summer Days
The sun is finally shining again so I thought you might enjoy taking a little walk around bits of my yard and we can chat while I snap a few pictures to remind me of summer. Hope you enjoy...
|I didn't get much more gardening done this year |
beyond the front of the house but a little lavendar
some tomatoes, cosmos, and lots of basil
at least it smells fantastic!
|And of course you cannot live in the country|
without having wreaths - handmade of course-
for each season of the year!
|My copper cat guarding my miniature pink rose |
bush that is not fairing very well this summer
|What would a country house-barn be without|
a front door light fixture like this?
|Another coveted item that I found in the farm |
garbage dump at the back of the property - I still use
it for a light potted plant to sit on in early summer
|One of my most prized posessions is this bell|
that sound is the bouy in Bar Harbor, Maine -
my most favorite place on the planet
|I have no idea what this old hook like apparatus|
was once used for but I do like the look of the
rust against the white and the cedar shingles that
cover my barn/home
|What would an old farm be without a rusting horseshoe or two?|
I never used to think about it but I really have come to like
old rusty things that remind us of a time gone by
|Only in the summer does the sun shine in through |
the front door windows like this - I love the juxtaposition
of shadow falling on the rugs
