Serene – River View in Wetumpka


Daily Post Photo Challenge
Sunday I took a drive over to Gold Star Park in Wetumpka Alabama to see if I could get some good pictures of our fall colors. Around here autumn means we watch the tree leaves turn from green to brown over night.  Well not over night, but within a few days.  The park was really busy and I wasn’t the only one working on capturing the view.


On the way home I stopped to do some shopping and snapped this one. Enjoy!

Coachella – the Cochin x Buff Orpington chick

New life on our little “farm”. Hatched on 15 August. From what I can tell knowing which eggs hatched we have a Speckled Sussex x Buff Orpington chick and a Partridge Cochin x Buff Orpington chick. It will be interesting to see if they are hens or roosters and what their coloring will be when the feathers come in.

Upcycled Eight O’Clock Coffee Bag into Planter!

What to do with a empty coffee bag? Make a hanging planter!

Today’s post is from a little project I put together back in 2012. It was very simple to do and fast forward 5 years and it’s still going strong. The plants have changed and the outside is a little faded, but the coffee bag planter is still together. All it takes is a little twine for the hanger, some drainage holes in the bottom and a small hole cut in the side for planting. Get creative and see what you can come up with!
