Country Living Update

It has been a year since we moved to the country, and my garden is coming together slowly. Last weekend I cleared the path to the garden, it must have been 20 years worth of leaves that were at least half a foot high. There are trashes and building materials left over from the previous owner that we need to clean up also.

The freedom of living in the country is to be able to raise animals, and Bo has a couple dozen ducks so far. The previous owner had a small fenced in area that he is currently using to house his ducks, and they have outgrown their living area. I like to raise chickens and will be getting my chicken coop soon.

Spring is in the air

It’s the end of January and might be too early for Spring in most area, I guess for us also just last week we had snow. The countryside came to a halt, and no work and school for most of us._MG_1845

I certainly don’t mind getting stuck here.

As I was taking this picture below, I thought to myself this would be a good place to walk. I think I found myself a new walking trail.

It’s extremely warm today, I was out walking and heard a woodpecker pecking a tree.

It was so high up, I’m glad I was able to capture it with my telephoto lens.

My daffodils are budding now, it’s certainly is an early sign of Spring.

Spring Flowers

I didn’t take as many spring flowers this year, and the flower trees that bloomed at the nursing home last Fall also bloomed again last week, but I didn’t have a chance to stop by to take photo. These are the photos that I took at my dad’s house the last two weekends, I hope you will enjoy.
