Thursday night walkabout

I took a walk around the yard tonight not long before sunset.  Can I share what I saw with you?  Yes?  Why, thank you for indulging me.  :)IMG_3837I’ve got a thing for red geraniums and King Tut grass.
IMG_3842My feeble attempt at container gardening…a pepper plant, a tomato plant and a few herbs: basil, parsley, cilantro and chinese chives.
IMG_3848Love ol’ Glory flying out front of the house.
IMG_3843This dinner bell was in my Dad’s family.

IMG_3845 The saying used to be if your corn was “knee high by the 4th of July” you had a good crop.  How about over my head and tasseling already?   That must mean a really good year, right?

IMG_3849  Love this mailbox.  Our son, Joe painted it for us for Christmas one year.  I’ll guarantee it’s the only one like it around.IMG_3840 Flower bed in front of the house.  I’ve also got a thing for farm primitives, can you tell?
IMG_3852This lil’ guy holds a special place in my heart.  Our son & then girlfriend, now wife gave this to me a few years ago.  Our boys spent hours and hours on their pedal tractors.  This brings back great memories everytime I look at it.
There you have it, thanks for coming along on my walkabout!


  1. Your yard is so pretty! I love looking out and seeing the fields beside your house. There is nothing better than fresh corn. And I love all your sentimental things you have in your yard. I have things that mean a lot to me in my flower beds. Your field of sunflowers will sure be beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend. Love & blessings from NC!
