Country Days

                                                                       Hello everyone,

           On a beautiful day last week my friend Janice and I went for a little day trip to some of our favorite places and some new back road country places that we had not seen before.
  Trust me to find some old country home and fall in love with it!
 We had a tour of an old church that has been restored and used for cooking classes-Annies Table. The pretty yellow house is her home that has also been restored-for some of the classes you get to tour the house and Lucy Maud Montgomeries birth place also. Sign me up!
     I enjoyed the day with Janice so much my husband and I went back for a drive one nice evening.
  The same house in the sunshine.

              We stopped to admire these beautiful horses on a very scenic farm. I love the hills in the background.

  For some reason the song "An Old Log Cabin for Sale' with an old open bucket and well kept going through my head here. It was a song my parents enjoyed many long years ago. My husband said it is an old Wilf Carter song. Anyone else know it?

               A field of Golden Rod in the evening light.

Happy Birthday to Jessica!

On a different note it was a little birthday celebration for Jessie who just turned seven and her cousin Lucas and Sasha Jessie's puppy enjoyed some fun and cake and icecream. Little Lucas is still travelling once a week to Montreal( a day trip most weeks) for a drug trial for Muscular Dystrophy as some of you may remember and we are happy with how well it is going for Lucas and his Mama.
Hope you enjoyed my' country days'.

Thank you for your visit!

I really enjoyed your photographs,especially the horses. It would be fun to do a course and get to see inside L M Montgomery's birthplace.

Thank you once again for starting my day with such beauty. To many times people pass on the ugly parts of life, more people need to create and pass on beauty as you are doing.

Dear Carolyn. Another set of smashing images, I hope one day you'll consider doing a book, put my name down for first copy.

These photos inspire bygone memories....and my husband would say ahhhhhchooooo to that golden rod - he is very allergic. I love those corbels on the house.

Congratulations on the birthday of your granddaughter Carolyn. She has grown so much!

I enjoyed your tour of the island. I don't want the plant in my garden (just got rid of it), but the field with Goldenrod looks beautiful!

Have a lovely day,

Carolyn, your photographs are just enough to make me feel like I have been on a little vacation but they also make me feel like I need a long road trip. Feel like I'm missing out on so many beautiful places. You have such a great eye and manage to single out all the sweetest sights!

I too am fond of that old song "An old log cabin for sale". I believe it was a Porter Wagoner song. I recently found your blog and am enjoying your posts!!

Hi :) At the same time I wrote a post about two recipes from Lucy's kitchen (cookies and cucumber jelly - ) and I invited ma readers to your beautiful garden. It is a model of a garden in the English style for me. Regards, D.

This is icing on the cake for me. I adore your beautiful garden and your lovely home so much. The soft colours you use and all the amazing settings you put together. Then, you show me this! Country pictures! I think I just fainted ;) Wonderful! Look at the beautiful consoles and ornaments..

Happy belated birthday, Jessica! So glad to hear that Lucas is doing well.

Oh, Carolyn! How beautiful all of the old worn wood is - how fun to toodle around! That was what I was looking forward to the most, this summer, but, as it turned out, we couldn't go ANYWHERE! Good thing that it's so beautiful right where we are! ...and, ooooooo.....the fog is rolling in! Gotta go! =D

xxooxxoo Thanks for the lovely and refreshing visit! =]
