I moved into my little cottage in late September and this is my first Spring here. I am so pleased with how beautiful the yard is. I spend many hours outside with the dogs in this great environment. (click on any pic to enlarge)
Here's the row of blooming flowers on one side of the yard
I would love to tell you the names of the flowers but, although I can care for them, I don't remember all

Hope spends a lot of time looking for chipmunks

I'm happy here, so are my dogs. Come by and visit if you like the idea of your dog staying too
I’m so happy to sneak in more walks in the warmth of this slow moving Fall. It’s like grabbing another handful of Halloween candy.
Rusty is ready for a hike
Although Frenchies have long since been bred for bull baiting, in the Fall leaves Rusty could easily slip up on an oblivious grazing bull and bite an ankle. Can you find Rusty? (Click on any picture to enlarge)
A favorite find on a hike is an old stone wall that once designated a property line. These walls were built from the 1600s up into the 1800s. I like to see if I can spot an old foundation of a house or barn that once stood on the property.

And this side
Rusty went "out on a limb" to check out the temperature of the water which he shortly found out moments after the picture was taken by slipping into the water for a surprise swim
It was a warm Fall day and we sat listening to the quiet and watched the occasional bird on the water and in the sky.
