The Dogs of Carogil Farm!

Hello everyone, today I am sharing some quick photos of our dogs enjoying the snow.  We actually "only" have 4 dogs even though it sometimes looks and feels like a lot more!  Over the years we have adopted many dogs and are so lucky to have them in our lives.  I am passionate about our animals and implore people to please be responsible pet owners and spay or neuter their pets.  So many animals live out their lives in shelters when all they really want is a warm and loving home for the rest of their days.

Winter Wonderland

Hello everyone, I have been absent because my camera met an untimely end.  While I am waiting for my new (and improved) camera to arrive I have tried to take some photos using my tablet.  

I am a dawdler and havent cleaned up any of the fall decorations.

A view of the gazebo this morning.  I would consider this to be more than a dusting of snow!

We havent gotten around to putting away any of the lawn furniture either.

And I never did find a spot to hang this little bird watering station.  

Lucy is a little surprised with the snow too.

A beautiful sunny morning but there is another "dusting" of snow forecast for today.

Apple Lane

Hello Everyone, 
we have had quite a stormy week so most of our trees have lost their leaves.  Somehow the colours are a little ghostly, dont you think?  I took a little walk down apple lane and have a few photos to share.

Apple lane is one of the little mysteries of our farm.  A double row of old apple trees that lead no where.

We also have the odd hawthorne tree as well.  Their thorns are a menace for the sheep and dogs and over time we are cutting them down.  This one has lovely gnarled bark and mosses.

I love the large rocks with mosses on them.

Beautiful textures.

Beautiful colours.

We use apple lane to divide two different pastures for the sheep.  Sheep love to eat apples so it doesnt matter which pasture they are grazing, they will be able to get some shade in the summer and snack on apples in the fall.
