Oh give me a home
Where the Papillons roam
And the deer and the chickens do play…
Where never was heard
A four-letter word
Though I watch them eat plants all day.

Hi – love your blog – always wish for more photos of your lovely place! Just wondering – are those trees crab apples loaded with fruit? Also – wonder if you could give us a peak at your chicken coop. i am thinking of getting chickens and figure you have an attractive one.
Thank you for the comments! The trees are actually Winter King Hawthorns. They are loaded with red berries in the fall. The birds eat them. One year they were host to a huge flock of evening grosbeaks. In the spring they have beautiful little white flowers.
Click here for some photos of the chicken coop and the original Eglu coop, which I now use for sick chickens or to separate newbies before introduction into the flock.
Thanks for visiting!
Wow, what a fantastic photo!!!

I love the look of these Hawthorn trees on your property. I actually have a bonsai version of these very same trees and it looks great in fall. Actually most any trees can be training to be a bonsai with a little bonsai trimming.
Thanks for sharing this little piece of heaven with us, Joan.
