The Old Homeplace

Not long ago I posted a few pics of the old shack and hand pump.  Today I share a few more that were taken that day.  I love the fact that there is beauty to be found in everything.  Look at the old buildings and items saved from others now gone.  Notice the colors and the textures. Time has a way of changing things, doesn't it?  Buildings fall, items rust and no longer work, but the memories linger on.  
Join me today won't you for a look at simple beauty......

We Lost King Today

"King" the White Rock Rooster

We were saddened today to find King dead in a pen with several roosters.  The culprit J.R. had to go.  I've secluded him in a makeshift jail for months.  I even gave him his own flock of hens.  Nothing ever seemed to work.  He was just crazy mean to other chickens be they hen or rooster.  He put my precious "Spot's" eye out and almost took the other out.  He killed the young rooster of King's and now he has killed "King".  He had to go.

Casper and the Chickens

Casper, the dirty Great Pyrenees, King the White Rock Rooster, Pat The Hammer (named by my grandson) and Cora Lee

I think it's time to show these wonderful creatures.  It's been awhile since I've shown them.  The weather was pretty and a few ventured out the gate to eat.  Come on out as we sit and watch the backyard animals.....

Authentic Haven Brand Moo Poo Tea & Hibiscus House Roses


I've been blessed with some very good, well excellent old garden roses.  I've lost some due to hot weather then there are some that just thrive no matter what happens.  I did lose four of my favorite roses from the heat and dry conditions we had here in South Carolina last year.  Today I want to tell you a little bit about Authentic Haven Brand Moo Poo Tea and how it works with my roses.  I should say show you what it does for them.  Please come on out to the rose gardens with me if you will.

Hey, Let's Take a Walk to See What's Blooming!


Yellow Jasmine our South Carolina State Flower.  It is very pretty and smells so good.  I saw this while taking a walk on a pretty morning last week.  I thought I'd share some of the naturally beautiful things in Spring.
