An October Stroll Around The Farm


This morning I grabbed my camera and
headed out the door to take a few
photo's. 

Fall has started to show it's colors 
here on the farm
but unlike those of you 
in the Northwest and in the 
east...we don't get those beautiful
red trees in large numbers. 

Most of those trees are not 
native to our area so you have to go
into town or the city 
to enjoy them.

We have a few wild vines 
that turn red
so I enjoy them when they turn color.



I'm so glad this one survived the drought
as these were never watered.


Shep followed me out to the pasture
along with Henry and Olly.
Unfortunately for him he can't get 
through the fence so he waits 
patiently for our return.

He's watching Chelsea go through
the fence.


Some of the leaves are just starting to
 turn color.


Henry had fun hunting for anything 
that moved.




Olly takes life easy and watches Henry.


Shep still waiting patiently.


A good start to the woodpile
but we still have lots to split. 


The tree in front of the corn crib
is just starting to change color.


I wonder if the owl that lived in the barn
is now living in the loft of the corn crib.


Watermelon still growing in the garden.


The gourds should start drying
up soon.








My future yard art flower container :)


Cappuccino with Spicy Meatball the rooster. 


The garden shed/coop


Poor Olly...I think he's had enough walking
for one day.

I hope your week is a good one!

Maura :)

It looks like Fall has come to the farm Maura, everything looks so peaceful and has an orange glow about the place...
My dear Oliver graced me with two presents today, one a little grey bird, not a mark on him, but dead as a doormouse, the other....
well, a doormouse :)
Love the pictures, it's a special time of the year !
Hugs,

Maura, everything looks beautiful at your house. What a lovely walk. I love the photo of the garden shed with the fall wreath hanging on the door. Our leaves have not turned yet....still waiting.

Enjoy your week!

Great photos. I don't know if I am ready for the leaves to change yet, even though they are so pretty when they do. In Kansas, one day you have beautiful colorful leaves and the next, the wind blows then to Oklahoma! I don't like naked trees!!! I hope the colors last a good long time this year!!!

What a fabulous tour! My favorite is the garden shed and the corn crib... oh how I love old building photos!

And I guess the payback for living in a more southern state is growing your own watermelons... yum!

Maura love all your pictures, especially that nice garden shed. Isn't it a nice time of year to go for a walk? Our trees are just starting to turn colors. What pretty kitty's you have and your Shep looks so sweet waiting for his family by the fence.

What an enjoyable walk with you and your critters around your farm. I enjoy seeing the changes in seasons as we don't really see that way down here in s.e. FL.

Enjoy Autumn.
