SHERMAN’S PIONEER FARMS – October 14, 2015

This morning I walked over to Sherman’s Pioneer Farms to see how hey have their pumpkins arranged this year. I was pleased to see that they had drug this old McCormick-Deering tractor.

Here’s another view toward the other side of the farm. I love the contrast between the green grass, orange pumpkins and red buildings.

The Sherman’s always seem to display something that’s current. This year the hot ticket is “Minions” so you get “hay-round Minions”.

If you’re ever in Coupeville around Halloween be sure to swing by Sherman’s Pioneer Farms. They even have a trebuchet for Pumpkin Chunkin on the weekends.

As always, thanks for walking with me, I hope you enjoyed that.

HAPPY MONDAY

I can be so stupid sometimes. This morning I was so excited that the sun was coming out with very few clouds, I was anxious to get out for my walk. About a quarter of a mile out I noticed that my feet didn’t feel quite right. Turns out I forgot to change shoes and was wearing my deck shoes, flat soles and no support. Oh well, I still managed to get in 2 1/2 miles although my doggies are a little sore now.

While out and about I noticed some more spring in the air and some beautiful flowers.These three trees really caught my eye.

Pink Camellia I believe.

Not sure what this is but they pruned the bottom part when the buds were on, interesting look.

Some other photos I took just because they caught my eye. This old McCormick Deering tractor looked really nice in the morning light.

I also like the lighting on the Joseph Libby house built in 1870.
