I hope the weather is as delightful at your place as it has been here. The days are simply perfect right now - 65 to 75 degrees - light breeze, plenty of sunshine - well, simply perfect. Today while I was outside I snapped a few pictures of things that I'm loving right now.
First things first - this GLORIOUS maple tree. It is the tree I see when I wake up in the morning - outside my bedroom window - it's over next to the cabin.
As you can see - we have started to landscape a bit - still no mulch and we are still missing two porch railings - but hey we are getting there. I can't believe we've been here nearly a year and still have MUCH to do!
This picture gives you a better idea of where the cabin is located. For those of you checking in for the first time - this was my late FIL's cabin - a place he dearly loved. It is on the historical register - nearly 200 years old and has military significance. I'll share all about it with you sometime.
My in-laws built on to it after restoring the main cabin. You can see a small kitchen addition in the back. A lot of great family memories have been made here. Right now we roast lots of marshmallows around the fire pit - mmmmmm.
Just past the cabin in the back is an old barn - a reeeeaaaally old barn. It needs repair and we'll get to it someday but I still love the way it looks.
The barn quilt on this barn is called "Glitter, Glitter."
The sky was beautiful.
Out my kitchen window - up on the hill - is the old chicken house and shed. I love red barns, blue skies and green grass.
At the entry - I used an old stock tank we had to plant flowers in.
It is filled with mums, sweet potato vine, plectranthus and ornamental millet, oh and a pumpkin of course.
Another washtub filled with ornamental cabbage and kale and Jade Princess Millet.
And if you aren't growing these ornamental beauties - you should! Just sayin'
Have a Happy Fall Day!
