The Walker Homestead

                                                  The Walker Homestead   ~ From the back~
I was hoping for an Autumn day with crispness and woodsmoke in the air. The smell of applepie and a warm candle. What did we get it was HOT! That could not spoil this nice day. We saw the gals from a Primitive Place and many other nice people and the eye candy was wonderful. The kids had a great time and we stopped for pumpkins and apples on the way home. Oh and ice cream too.
      I want this chicken coop, just the
        right size and I would love 3 chickens too!

                                       My granddaughter love the sunflowers that were drying.
 My grandson in front of the house that I just love, I loved the outbuildings and the gardens and the guest house and the dream home!
                                                     One of the many booths I liked.
 Here are some of the things I bought, I just loved this crow and he is now perched at my backdoor.
 The candle smells oh so good, pumpkin ginger soy candle. My little bag of sweet annie~
 This basket was made by a 14 year old girl named Dakota who is from CT. I just love it and right now it is holding a large bunch of sweet annie.

~Sweet September~

My bounty, ready for canning.
September with your cool misty mornings and warm summer like days....the plants in the garden are going by and there is a special smell to the air... signaling the end of summer. I love to have my coffee on the patio in the early morn. The hummingbirds are still chattering happily and darting to and fro. Many birds are at the feeders too. I love to wander in the garden, barefoot and pick the last of the tomatoes and cucumbers, peppers and oh, the herbs are at their best right now. While I am at it I pick some hydrangeas for drying. I just love the soft colors, lime green rosy pink, lavender blue, soft cream with a hint of pink. Mother nature at her best.
