It seems like the older I get the more I appreciate the beauty around me. When I was a teenager my Mom was forever pointing out the beauty of the area we lived in. She loves the rolling hills of Western Wisconsin. Being a teenager, and much more interested in boys than hills, I was rather ho hum about the whole nature beauty thing. But on Sunday, as I was driving to a local rural nursery to check on their flowers I was struck by the greenness and beauty of our rolling hills. I spotted some beef cows heading down to pasture and I thought they made the prettiest of pics.
We got some desperately needed rain last weekend and things are greening up quite nicely.
A simple pastoral scene. But I find beauty in it.
Flowering Crabs also make my heart sing.
We only have one in our yard that the previous owners planted. They placed it in a poor spot and it doesn't get enough sun. So I took my camera to town and found these lovelies outside a local business.
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
