Oh give me a home
Where the Papil­lons roam
And the deer and the chick­ens do play…
Where never was heard
A four-letter word
Though I watch them eat plants all day.

    Hi — love your blog — always wish for more pho­tos of your lovely place! Just won­der­ing — are those trees crab apples loaded with fruit? Also — won­der if you could give us a peak at your chicken coop. i am think­ing of get­ting chick­ens and fig­ure you have an attrac­tive one.
    happy fall.

    Hi Jane,
    Thank you for the com­ments! The trees are actu­ally Win­ter King Hawthorns. They are loaded with red berries in the fall. The birds eat them. One year they were host to a huge flock of evening gros­beaks. In the spring they have beau­ti­ful lit­tle white flowers.

    Click here for some pho­tos of the chicken coop and the orig­i­nal Eglu coop, which I now use for sick chick­ens or to sep­a­rate new­bies before intro­duc­tion into the flock.

    Thanks for vis­it­ing!

    I love the look of these Hawthorn trees on your prop­erty. I actu­ally have a bon­sai ver­sion of these very same trees and it looks great in fall. Actu­ally most any trees can be train­ing to be a bon­sai with a lit­tle bon­sai trim­ming.

    Thanks for shar­ing this lit­tle piece of heaven with us, Joan.
