A Fall Walk



First, the lovely Camilla from Camilla at Home has posted on A Country Farmhouse! Isn't that so kind of her! She has a beautiful blog that I love visiting and I know you will too!

The above photo was taken up the road from our house. You can see that big open field from our bathroom window, which I always pause to look out from in case there are any elk or deer passing through.

It's a favorite field of ours as it's down a long dirt road where only horses and a few neighbors like us, travel on. The mountain you see in the background is Mt. Adams, the same mountain we see from our house.

This photo was taken last fall. We went up to the field this past weekend but unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me. We were happy to see that the bees were back, now that their work in the orchards is done. They were buzzing wildly...it's sort of exciting and terrifying all at the same time! But unlike the wasp, the honey bees are more interested in their honey than in you.

And just so you know, those wires around the bee boxes - are live! I know this because I got too close and got zapped!
Fall is such a beautiful time of the year, I only wish it didn't pass by so quickly.

Hi Trina,

You too are so lucky to live in such a beautiful location. The views are amazing.

I saw your house on Camillas blog and thought it looked just like a magazine. You are so talented and should be so proud of what you guys have created. It truly is beautiful. I look forward to all your posts.

Hi Trina,
Just thought I'd call in and let you know that Willow Decor has a story today on a lady that wanted a Christopher Peacock looking kitchen and the lady sent Willow Decor some additional photos on her bathroom and living room and I noticed that the surround of her fireplace was a light grey with a white mantel and black inside the fireplace. Thought this might help you out in your decision making!! Have a great day

Beautiful! I just love seeing your photos of Mt. Adams! I forget, you can't see Mt.Hood from your area can you?
I love blog land... how sweet for Janine to see the grey painted surround and then pass it on! What did you think of the grey?
Happy Friday to you & hubby & Miss Lucy!

Hi Janine, I wanted to just write and say THANKYOUSOMUCH for thinking of me!!! You are soooo sweet. And I did go right over to Willow Decor and saw the fireplace with they gray - this helps so much as I hadn't been able to find a photo of the gray option. THANKS again! xoTrina
