~A Sheckyville Visit~

Saturday we were greeted by a beautiful Peacock in the yard as we were leaving the house. We noticed him just standing there as if waiting to come in the door. He has been in the neighborhood for the past few days or so and just seemed to enjoy meandering, but when we saw him…

~Garden Visitors~

The fires sure have given us more visits to the gardens. These guys were here last year and it was good to see them again. This one stuck around long enough for me to grab the camera after noticing him through my dirty, ashy window. There were two but this one was right close by…

~Kind Of Cute~

Here’s Witch Green Thumb. She comes out once a year and pulls up a seat anywhere she deems fitting. She’s done with her flying days but she still gets around and can have some attitude. You can kind of see that here with her giving me the stink eye. She wasn’t going to move over…

~Swinging & Singing~

Pull up a seat, swing and sing. This oak has been determined to be between 200-300 years old and has been registered so we love it. Most of the big oaks on the property are at least that age and they are the perfect trees to sit under and relax for awhile. Robust, strong, and…

~Mr. Creepy Pulls Up A Seat~

Via his homestead in the Tuff Shed, Mr. Creepy has arrived on his new seasonal chair. If you recall The Pine Throne post, we had to cut a tree down on the property and I had the guys make a seat for upcoming garden travelers. Mr. Creepy has decided it is his for the season…

~The Beer Garden Crew~

Sometimes taking a walk around the gardens is worthy. I noticed a few things today. This guy decided to pull up a seat and grab a beer right on top of the moss and stein. Gotta love a sloppy gnome. Here’s a fellow getting off work and heading toward the beer gardens. He’s trouble, I…

~Vinyl Memories In Check~

After the material on this bench went kaput, it was time to not only update it but give it some weather proofing material. Getting tired of taking cushions off every night and then putting them back on in the morning, prompted the lazy in me for another material type for the outdoors. So against everything…

~Bench At The Old Man Tree~

This little bench was found under some brush at the bottom of the yard. So it got some cleaning and a new spot for the lizard to pull up a seat. It is always a hike to get here and there on this property so when this was found it had to go where I…

~Lounge Seating~

The mini housing estates are over in this direction on the property and this lounge is a planned spot for pulling up a seat while working on them. I’ve had it for centuries it seems and it is all chipped and worn, but for some reason I can’t get rid of it. This part, as…

~Wicker Seating~

~Someone is sitting in the shade today…that would be me. ~ Me
