It's a Beautiful Day...

in this neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor...something about that song...warms my heart...makes me feel incredibly lucky for my own neighborhood and for our own beautiful "neighbors", if you will...
Our closest human neighbor is across a good part of the field...last year beans, this year corn, next year beans...but we are blessed for many other neighbors so much our own little corner of the world...things that also warm my heart and make me feel safe and at home.  Some of them were introduced here...others are waiting for their own little debut. ourown tiny orchard...bigger each day...ever closer to the canning and freezing that we will be so thankful for during winter's cold months.
My beautiful hens...enjoying the spoils of the apples that find their way to the ground way too early...providing fresh, lovely eggs each day...I'm forever in awe at the brown beauties that I collect each day.
This lovely lady finds some shade...choosing a spot away from the sun...allowing her friends first "dibs" at the apple treats. 
Garden tools in the never ending weeds...not really neighbors, but a sight that I'm drawn to...for some reason. 
The battered pail on the since before this became our home all those years ago...don't know what it is, but I love it.
If you're still with me, there's a card, too...made with heart for a special young lady that is hurting right now...a broken ankle and the surgery so necessary to begin the long recovery...something bright and fun, and I hope it cheers her up!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
