Another Day in the Country

My mom's home is one of the most peaceful places you could visit.  The best place to have your morning cup of coffee is on the deck watching the birds raid the bird feeders, sun softly shining through the trees, gentle breezes.  It is beautiful with lots of trees, birds, deer, flowers, peace.

One of the many bird feeders my mother has collected and uses around her house.

When you are in the country and your neighbors are not able to see or hear what's going on at your house (like when you flush or change the channel on the t.v. or drink coffee on the deck in your pajamas) life is different.  Relaxing.

Red Camellia, yellow and white daffodils, moss (green) - I love the country.

Mom has flowers around the house.  Then flowerbeds.  Then, at the edge of the garden, just where the woods begin, she's blurred the flowers and the countryside.

I spend most of my time in the city, so the country is a special place to visit.

If you don't have time to get out in the country today here's two morning minutes for you to enjoy.  The picture isn't that clear, but the morning sound is what I was trying to capture.  Rock, Mom's trusty dog, is there beside me trying to be good.  Pushing and pulling me every now and then to put a bit of movement in the picture.

Sorry about the car going by, it was rush hour.

It quite literally sounds like my kind of place! Or rather, it sounds just like my place! There is something definitely different about living somewhere where your closest neighbor is easily a half mile away and definitely out of sight and sound! :)

There's nothing like the country to create that sense of serenity.

I missed this post last time I was reading your blog. What a beautiful post!!!

The first pic of the birdhouse, I first thought it was a picture of a boarded up cabin that you found on a country walk!! LOL. How cute that is.

I love birds and put up a bird feeder every year. I should get my husband to make a little bird cabin like that!
