Just a Few Little Things to Show

This is the biggest news. Every since I’ve lived here, I had CATTLE gates. Yuck. So one day I asked my contractor if he would be able to build gates and a partial fence. I just loved this round gate that I found on the internet, and he also built a trellis in front of it so I can get some climbing roses and put them there. I want to get Queen Elizabeth roses, but the climbing ones are hard to find. Anyway, I love the fence so much that I am going to put the fence all the way around my yard eventually. Also, there is welded wire on the outside of the fence so Sophie can’t get out and skunks can’t get in! You can also see the little patio that I had built. Sadly, I haven’t used it much yet.

I hardly ever remember to take a picture of Noah right after he has his bath. Isn’t he a handsome dog. He’s going to be 10 years old in a couple of weeks!

This is just Chloe and Sophie trying to get me to feed them. They were barking at me, but I didn’t get that shot.

And my new baby chickens are just about grown up. I have four blue laced red wyandottes, 2 Black Astralorps, and 2 Barnvelders.

The babies are still afraid of most of the chickens, so I was surprised when I saw this picture of one of my Dominique chickens up there with the babies.

And that’s about all the news that’s fit to print.

  1. Gate and fence are beautiful. (I have missed your gardening posts very much). Glad to get an update on the dogs and chickens!

  2. That round gate is so cool!! I love your fence, very nice!
    And Noah… I can’t believe he’s almost 10!! I remember when you got him. πŸ™‚ He’s so handsome.

  3. I love the imploring look Sophie is giving you. FEED ME NOW. Chloe is just along for the ride because when the Queen has a demand for food, she knows she’ll get fed, too. πŸ™‚

    And Noah!!! He is such a gorgeous dog. Like Jill, I remember when you got him – dang, time really has gone by, hasn’t it?

    I absolutely love your gate and your fence. It brings so much charm to an already charming garden!

  4. Oh my goodness, I LOVE your gate and fence! You have done some beautiful work on your property in these last years. I think it’s nice that you’re able to really enjoy it in your retirement.

    As always your ladies and gents are so adorable, although Noah might not like being referred to that way.
