Come Take a Walk With Me

Maddie, our Golden Retriever, is known as my dog when she is bad. Since starting on thyroid medication she has calmed down a bit and does not get into as much trouble. Most mornings she and Sophie come along on my walk. Sophie must have been taking a nap after our walk as she was not around for my picture taking.


I have a collection of Isabel Bloom figurines. Hubby is in charge of taking them in for the winter. They are rather heavy.




The corn has grown tall since I took the banner photo.



A dear friend gave me this angel that once lived in her lovely garden when they moved away. I think of Barb when I water the plants in this garden.



Daisies



My gazing ball. I used to not like them but done right they can be lovely.



Joe Pye Weed


Sunflower


Pole Beans



My vegetable garden and a unlovely view of our farm buildings.




My hammock. This is as close as I will ever get to owning a vacation home.



Red Stella Lilly



Time for Maddie's nap.




Thanks for taking the time to walk around my home!


One last photo. I call this tenacity. I hope to replant this tree in our yard come fall.
