Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
So much is happening outside these days and I wanted to take you all outside on my morning walkie around the yard!
This is the decoration at our back door! Mom put a piece of black electrical tape over the hole in the Amish hat birdhouse so the birdies won't make a nest there! It's messy when they do and it's just not a practical thing! We use this entrance all the time and they'd have no privacy!This is mom's Easter gardenia plant from Missy and Jim! It's in bloom and it smells AWESOME!!!!We're in dad's greenhouse! These are all tomato plants that he has started from seed! There are yellow brandywines and big boys and Father Lou and dime tomatoes, which are just little and supposedly the size of a dime! And there are Aussies and Old Germans and Fourth of Julys and even a tomato called pineapple! Some varieties are new to us! I'll keep you updated when they start to produce fruit!It's 8AM here and this is the temperature in the greenhouse! The thermometer says 80 degrees! By this afternoon, the greenhouse will be well over 100 degrees!
Just outside the greenhouse is the pond and there's Dauby, our Mute swan, saying hi to me!
This is the daddy Greylag goose! We think his wife is sitting on a nest because she's been missing in action now for a couple of days! I'll keep you updated on that too!
This is the magnolia tree in front of the addition on dad's barn! Isn't it just beautiful in bloom? No, you're not seeing things. The wing of our workshop barn really was built c.1680! We own one of the oldest structures in our country! Another time I'll have to take you inside to see the timbers! That's the old part!What a beautiful day we have here today!
See you all next Wednesday!
