Miggs In Leaves !!


  It was a quiet weekend here for us , we just puttered Saturday inside as it was cold and rainy . Yesterday Sunday was a nice day with warmer temps and sunny with cloudy periods so we decided to get out and do some more yard clean up . My gardens are all done for good now nothing left all bare BOOHOO !!!

Papa got the leaf blower/mulcher out and started getting the thousands of leaves we had all over the lawn picked up . Well as he was doing that I was puttering here and there , then I had to run in and get my camera cause Miggs decided  to lay in the leaves and that means she wants to  have some fun .

This is Miggs looking to see if either of us notice her laying in the leaves . In other words she is being cheeky and wants Papa to play and I take photos  she is a smart girl  cause it works every year  lol !

This lasted quite some time playing in the leaves and I was able to  take lots and lots of fun photos of Miggs playing in the leaves  and  Papa and I had a laugh at our Miggs having fun , that made our day  . Miggs is full of character, loves the camera and it shows lol !

                                                          Rainy mild and windy here today !

                                                                            Until next time .

A Little Fall Walk In Our Valley


With links to our Village Valleys history if you are a history buff  like me lol !

Miggs and I went for a second walk yesterday afternoon as the sun was shining and the temps were quite warm I took my camera with me to get some photos of our valley village with all the pretty fall colours .

                                           Photo heavy …….

OCTOBER 2014 (22 of 55)

                          Picture above is what's across and in front from our house ! The top of  those trees  on the other side of them is fields and then one of the main roads in and out of the valley and another part of our village lives up there !

OCTOBER 2014 (21 of 55)

                                         And this is what's behind us ! Miggs and I are on the road beside it all !

OCTOBER 2014 (29 of 55)

                                                     This is one of the pretty streets we take for our walk !

OCTOBER 2014 (34 of 55)

Photo above the road comes to an end way down ahead and a trail leads into the forest , sometimes Miggs and I like to walk the trails we have around the valley if they aren’t to mucky and boggy lol !

                                                   We stopped for a rest under the trees and in the leaves !

OCTOBER 2014 (41 of 55)

                                 Our village valley has a few parks in it this is just a minute up the road from us  over to the right of the photo is a jungle gym for the kids in the area but it doesn't get used that much as most of the families that have kids here are Mennonites  and the rest that make up the village valley population are retired folk  !

These are all the streets Miggs and I love walk ! This street here goes to the main road of our village and on either side  right and left of the main road there is more  of our village and valley !  We have towns with in a 20 minuet drive on either side of our valley and our main road leads to a lovely 6 minuets drive to a  fishing and marina town called Port Burwell off the north shores of lake Erie  with its beautiful beaches, shops , restaurant's  and famous wooden lighthouse  and now we have a Submarine  called the Ojibwa there stationed as part of the tourism  . One day I will post of all that .

                                                 OCTOBER 2014 (53 of 55)

                                             So many bright pretty colours of trees now in our valley village !

OCTOBER 2014 (24 of 55)

These photos are just our part of the valley and village  , it is a very wide spread open  valley with lots of fields large properties wooded areas here and there and the river that runs through part of it  . Our village  valley has about 1200 people living  here . We have a comer gas station with a general store and a hardware store  an Antique shop , a Auction house and an old farm house that is a museum of Thomas Edison  who lived here back in the 1800s , a community centre  and a lovely old church . If you would like to see more photos  and read of our Village valley’s history visit this link below of my post I did  way back on our K & E photography blog .    


             Hope you enjoyed  part of our neck of the Woods Country Cove Village Valley  fall walk  and a bit of it’s  history .

                                     Even a deeper history of our Village valley you can find here !


                                                                            Until next time !

The gardens people , the gardens …lol  !  tsk , tsk  cheeky  things you are hehe !!!! I bet you were wondering at what I was going to write or show with that title lol   Are you smiling yet ?  Good !!

Our gardens are done and naked now , no more blooms left , they were either cut back because they are perennial's  or pulled out as they were just annual's   , but I have blooms inside Smile .

OCTOBER 2014 (2 of 9)-2

A few weeks a go I brought in some Geraniums and a New Guinea Impatient . I am experimenting with the Impatient to see if I can keep it going over the winter months as I have never had one in over the winter before , as for the Geraniums I bring them in every year . I like having the blooms indoors when all blooms out doors are done and some of the Geranium colours are hard to find like the two toned pink  and purples and Salmon colours   .

                               I also have  2 Christmas Cactus that are budding now and will be opening soon !

The weather has been dull  windy yet warm  , all our trees are in full colour now and some are even naked already there’s that naked word again lol . I have been waiting for the sun to shine and blue sky’s to get my scenic fall photos of our valley and country roads  .  Hope to get those photos taken by the weekend  hopefully the trees wont be naked by then lol !
