If you have visited my blog before you probably have noticed that we have a lot of critters around here. Early this morning, I took a drive to some nearby marshes. I was hoping to get photos of some lovely autumn color and was super excited when I came upon these Sandhill Cranes.
There were a pair of these fellows, or maybe a guy and gal out enjoying the early morning sun. Aren't they majestic! The early morning sun, was just starting to peek through the fog.
Now I love this pic! He was flapping his wings as if to say, "don't get too close to us" . See his beautiful patch of red! Today is also Outdoor Wednesday with out hostess Susan and my first ever Rednesday with our hostess Sue. Please click on these links to visit their lovely blogs!
I thought I would share some of the reasons I'm in love with Red!
My bushel basket filled with Red Mums!
My cute little red watering can lights next to the stone of our cottage.
The old bench I recently painted red !
The little piece of wrought iron we placed on the peak of our cottage. My husband Dan added the red paint to make it look like little apples! Isn't he clever!
The trees that are starting to turn a brilliant shade of red! It's in the 80's here today and about 10 degrees warmer than normal. I am soaking it all up and loving this gorgeous weather.
And now you know why I'm in love with Red!! Are you a red lover too? Cindy
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
