When it’s cold outside give your animals a little more somp’im somp’im.
One of my White Leghorns was enjoying his greens in the freezing snow and rain.
Where has the blue sky gone ?
Just wet, dark, & cold here in Cville, VA… this photo taken last week.
I just finished a really interesting book, Saving Monticello by Mark Leepson, about the history of the house that Thomas Jefferson built at Monticello. This Lion Statue that used to sit on the front steps as you entered the house was auctioned off in the 1920s because it was not original to Thomas Jefferson’s day. Amazingly it is still in Charlottesville for all to see. Read more about the torrid history of this famous residence on my blog:
Forsythia amazes me. I’m not sure how this little bloom is hanging on through the freezing weather, but it is!
Photo taken last week in Charlottesville, Virginia on Forsythia Hill.
The most scenic farm in Charlottesville, Virginia complete with Texas Longhorn Cattle! Who would have thought such a breed would be way up here!
Spotted on Garth Road.
I spotted this mysterious door when in Staunton, Virginia.
I love the evidence tape… and HOUSE.
Thanks goodness for reruns. Didn’t get interested until then.
On a freezing cold day like today I like to remember warm colors of Summer.
These Daylilies in Claire’s Garden were amazing (she is in the green shirt in the background). She propagated this variety of Daylily!
Fifty years ago, my Granddaddy owned a Dairy Farm in Southwest Virginia. This is the last barn on our farm. I have stared at this sign forever and hopefully one day can bring it to my house to hang. The wood is amazing.
I love old barns!
Fall peak in Charlottesville, Virginia.
This Sugar Maple is in full color outside of our back porch on Forsythia Hill.
Every window in the house has a beautiful Maple or Dogwood carefully positioned so I can get a flash of Fall.
