Enjoying the Homestead

A look  in the opposite direction.  Our little table blends right in with its surroundings. The cornfield behind us (on the right) is a great place to see deer at dusk.
A view from the table looking out across the garden and the field across the road
 where we often see deer coming out to feed in the evenings.

We have a field that we refer to as our garden.  Adjacent to the garden, is the chicken/turkey yard.  In between is a strip of grass and an old wooden table.  

During the summer months we spend a lot of our evenings in the garden and just sitting at the table...talking, enjoying a cool drink and being entertained by the chickens.  We also enjoy watching the wildlife.  Here's a 
look at a typical evening.

The Oriole family that has a nest over the chicken yard keeps busy feeding the little ones.

Hubs sampling some berries

Runaway Chicken- She is an escape artist!

 Josie entertains herself by chasing butterflies...

 or chewing a stick!

What a cutie!

It's difficult to see, but there are several deer grazing in the corn field at dusk.


  1. Looks like a wonderful place to relax! I'm glad you don't have to look at your neighbors yard, LOL! Josie is a gorgeous dog and quite the entertainer as well I'm sure.

  2. What an idyllic spot. I could just sit there for hours watching the animal world go by!
