welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

Friday, October 28

some snapshots...

The flu bug (or blue bug, as Little Man calls it) has descended upon us, and for the last two weeks we've experienced most of the ups & downs that come with it. A little R&R is good at times like these,
and I'm even more grateful for cozy quilts, fluffy pillows, good books, and a purring cat (who, by the way, likes to sleep on us!) These, along with daily hugs & kisses, have been the best medicine of all.

The month is flying by, so I wanted to take a minute to post a handful of pictures of October around our farm.

a late-blooming clematis
for my "someday" bees!
just for fun
limelight hydrangea
corn still waiting to be harvested
maple leaves in the afternoon sun
today's foggy morning
a Sunday sunset

When the heat of summer's over
and the coolin' fall is here,
Of course we miss the flowers, 
and the blossoms on the trees,
And the mumble of the hummin' birds 
and buzzin' of the bees;
But the air's so appetizin',
and the landscape through the haze,
of a crisp and sunny morning of the airy autumn days...
when the frost is on the pumpkin and the fodder's in the shock.
