Our new home is located two blocks from the western edge of our town. Beyond that are farms. The farm closest to us is a 100+ year old apple orchard. A few days ago we walked out there to enjoy all the apples.
On the way we passed this building. I thought this was such an interesting sign.
Beautiful, huge catalpa tree on the farm next to the apple orchard. I grew up with two of these tress so I do have a soft spot for them.
Interesting old plow (I think!)
It has been a wonderful year for apples. The trees are full.
The old farmhouse. I don't believe it is occupied at this point. The back is looking a little saggy!
Great use for old garden tools!
This is one of the great bargains I got when Kim was down last week. The quilt is mostly hand stitched with some machine stitching on the butterflies. It was only $10.00! Not a mark on it and in beautiful condition.
Kim gave us this beautiful bouquet of sunflowers when she was here. Sweet Pea seemed to enjoy them.
Yes, I sanitize the counter after he eats. I have tried to get him to eat on the floor but he just won't!
Such a handsome guy!
This little girl has been hanging around too but she is very skittish. This was taken at 6:00 a.m. a few days ago. She will now let me pet her head after initially running away if she spotted me but if you reach for her she runs off. According to a neighbour she has hung around the neighbourhood for the last few years. I now count 5 cats that roam the neighbourhood. Most of them do have owners. Only one wears a collar. We will continue to feed them. Sweet Pea must have put out the word that we are a soft touch!
We are continuing to enjoy the Fall weather. It has rained for most of today but it is warm.
