Fantastic the colours blend well with the Autumn foliage of the trees.

It was getting fainter by the minute when I ran to the house to get my camera... In the last 48 hours the colour of the trees has really become quite pretty but we've had gusty wind and it may all be over very quickly.

Thanks all! Stan, you're the first to comment on my lone sunflower! It's been through two frosts and we're getting the tail-end of some tropical storm at present...lots of rain and it's a balmy 18 degrees C! It has stood through all the high winds too! it took some care to get it in there, without showing too much of the old barn!

I like old barns. We had one in the mid 60's in the central valley. I remember that somebody's chicken would lay eggs in that barn.It was the first time I ever saw a brown egg.

I have to say, "Me, too." to that one Stan... but our old barn-shed-garage has had many useful incarnations and is made from lumber milled on this property... it's useful but not the most beautiful structure! I've had to "laminate" it... with a huge old tarp and industrial staples I've closed it in and made it dry by keeping the wind and snow out of it. It's a job that I'll have to tackle at some point in the future and sadly it's near the bottom of a very long to-do list. I believe, at one time, it held chickens, as one wall is nesting boxes, used by someone to store car parts, and hence not very good for chickens anymore. The squirrels have happily stepped into that void. The last tenants left a bike helmet on a nail... when we saw it we thought it was strange, until on further examination it was found to hold a very snug little squirrel's nest.

I miss all that Lori. It all was when I was in the 6-10 year old range. Country living was great...across the street was nothing as far as the eye could see,but for an abandoned chicken farm,already by then.
Grape vines on what was an old greenhouse frame.
Well on my next reincarnation I will return!

Amen to that, Stan. I've come to feel that I have perhaps bitten off a lot, taking on this "stewardship" at this time in our lives... We've been here seven years (in Dec.) and in all those years my hub has never been up the hill to see the bush part of our property. As far as he's concerned, it's all mine! I'm so involved with it that I'm thinking this must have been something out of a cosmic plan. I feel so at peace here. When the rest of the world seems to be going nuts I just go up the hill and sit on a log and wait for peace.
