The Summer months bring so many beautiful sights to see in the garden: fruit, vegetables and the animal kingdom; but sometimes the heat of the Dog Days of Summer make me yearn for Autumn. This morning I got a photo of a purple pansy in the Scaveola planter. I love volunteers showing up to give a wink that Autumn will indeed return!

The little hen house and fenced yard are waiting for fifteen Ameraucana female chicks from Murray McMurray the week of September 16th. In the meantime I have been painting barn quilts, one of which will be secured to the front door of the hen house.

What is it that y'all are excited about doing, making, seeing?

Welcome Natalie, I see you are new to the Farm. Great looking henhouse and fenced henyard. Baby chicks coming in Sept - how exciting.

I'm with you. I've had enough of the heat of August and so ready for the coolness of fall.

Welcome Natalie!
Baby chick's are so much fun! Your flowers are beautiful!
I am definitely looking forward to Autumn. A storm came through last night so we are a bit cooler for a few days.

Hi Natalie, and welcome to the Farm from down here in Florida! Your Henhouse barn quilts are beautiful! What a fantastic look they are going to provide too. You have to send us a photo when they are all up and the chicks arrive.

I know Georgia is very hot just like Florida right now. If a cooler front passes down your way, please blow it oden so it will cross, the Fla.Ga border!!

Hi. Love your hen house and the barn quilts---looks like you are having fun being creative. I hope you will post some pictures of the chicks. I love chickens. I never thought of getting them in the fall.

Hi Winnie, Thank you. They are fun to paint and addictive! When the chicks come I will definitely share pictures. The past few evenings here have been pleasant with a bit of a breeze. Stay cool down there!

Keep shining!

Hi Barbara, Thank you. Creativity is medicine for the soul. We have a blackberry vineyard so the Summer is focused on that. We sell wholesale and take berries to the Atlanta Farmers Market for about 6 weeks. Then, there is the pruning, etc. to get them ready for next year. Chickens are so much fun! It will great to spend time with the chicks and socialize them. Lots of pictures, no doubt!

Keep shining!
Natalie

Welcome to the farm Natalie. Your barn quilts are beautiful. Enjoy those baby chicks, I am the crazy neighborhood chicken lady and love baby chick season.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.

Hi Natalie, and a big welcome! Your barn quilts are amazing - so beautiful! What talent! Love the pics, and especially love your hen house door. My mom lives in Georgia, too. Such a warm, friendly place.

I am excited for fall, too, but also a bit sad as this was a wonderful summer. We had lovely weather almost every day, and the gardens were one of the best ever! I am looking forward to pumpkins, sweaters, and soup!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Welcome Natalie! It's so nice to meet you. You barn quilts are beautiful and the colors are stunning. Your purple flowers are beautiful too! Thank you for sharing with us.

I think what I always look forward to is anything pumpkin spice and snuggly clothes and blankets!

The second day of Autumn and still HOT outside! It's wonderful to read the posts of kindred spirits. Well, the chicks arrived, flowers blooming, flowers/shrubs to plant and festivals are starting.
My first chicks were shipped May 2004. After a few years of not having them and missing so much, a new flock graces my presence. They are supposed to be pullets. We'll find out pretty soon. The barn quilt has been hung on the door of their "palace".
Irises to be planted are blooming. Serendipitously I discovered how very easy it is to root Gardenias. When flowers start to bloom a bouquet is sure to find it's way onto the kitchen counter. I like to add some green so I clipped some gardenia branches. They rooted!! So, we clipped more to root. Then, potted them up and voila! They will be planted around the porch when it gets a bit cooler.
The sedum is turning deeper shades to it's crimson beauty. Roses are blooming. Toads are hunting and jumping into flower pots. Lol! Weenie, the cat, waits by the Indigo plant as I come back from the chicken house.
So, so happy Autumn is officially here!





Keep shining!
Natalie

The chicks are so cute. What fun. Your flowers are beautiful, too. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures. I would love to raise some chickens but we have bird dogs and we all know what that would be like around here.

Those chicks have made my year! That little chicken house is as close to Ft. Knox as we could get it. I can see the concern with bird dogs. Maybe one day you can get some chicks, too. I am so happy you enjoyed the pictures. So many pretty and interesting things to see, and thank God for digital cameras! Many Blessings to you.

Keep shining!
Natalie
