Nest

 

I love how you can see that 3 eggs occupied the perfect soft nest.

Broken beauty

There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots

may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on feelings, as now October.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

Old farm building, long left behind.

Busy Harvest

I enjoy my time in the garden– more than I enjoy the work in the kitchen.

But of coarse, the work must be done.

Tomatoes have been roasted,

Apples have been turned to Apple Butter, and pie fillings,

Soups have been made for the Winter months,

Herbs have been dried.

Object of my affection

My grandparents had chickens…

well concrete ones.

They had the whole family.

A rooster, a hen, and 3 little chicks.

When Grandpa mowed the lawn, we helped move the little chicks.

When this chicken appeared at a local auction, my husband was the wining bidder,

and brought me home my own concrete chicken.
