We went for our annual New Year Hike last week. It was cold and it felt like winter. And it just might be the only winter we get. Like most areas, we've been experiencing very mild temps for January. We still enjoyed getting out to the back woods for the first time in a long stretch. You can read all about it here if you wish.
This is one of my favourite homes in the area. Situated at the intersection of a small hamlet, it was once an inn, serving as a place of respite for weary travelers. I have a thing for Georgian houses and it's this well kept home that reminds me that another house I wrote about (here) has the potential to be just as swoony with a little TLC.
And just down the road from the old inn, I found this swoony sunset.
The little egg bound hen is doing well and has taken up foraging again with her flock. She was the largest of the girls, girth-wise, but I think a couple of days of minimal snacking has slimmed her down in the mid-section for I can no longer tell them apart but I think that is her on the right. The fact that she seems a little stand off-ish with me may or may not be part of my deductive reasoning.
The russian sage may have lost its blooms but I think it looks pretty darn good for January. And I thought there would be nothing to photograph all winter long. I also thought we'd be skating on the pond by now but the only one able to exercise while gliding thus far is Ember. Although.....my abs get a great work out every time I see her out there and....GASP!
~Be well friends!~
