Springtime in Caneyhead

I've been drinking in all the beauty of springtime lately. The softness of the air. The variation of all the new shades of green. The new growth, new life that is abounding. Wanted to share a little glimpse of Caneyhead here with you.

A logger-head turtle Pete found on the road. Brought home and released out by our pond.

A totally natural cock fight. When left to themselves they fight, but one will get tired, run away, hide, etc. It's just a jockeying for position thing....pecking order, if you will.

The beautiful potato patch by daylight.

Nothing like sitting by a beautiful tee-pee style fire, listening to good music and relaxing!

Young, tender mustard greens. Yum. Twice this size now. And some are going to get cooked this weekend.

Twenty-eight baby chicks!

One of fourteen four leaf clovers we found last Sunday!

Hope you've enjoyed your glimpse into Springtime in Caneyhead. You can't imagine how blessed I feel to live here. I still love getting out seeing other places and things....but nothing compares to the peace that settles over my soul when I turn off the little Farm Market road and head toward my house as the woods close in and the pine trees cast their shade over me.

  1. Thanks for the tour of Caneyhead. Are you anywhere near White Hall? You gotta give that turtle a name.

  2. Great pictures of country living. I love them. I found two four leaf clovers in the same area a couple of weeks ago. Pretty garden. Better name that turtle for Paula. Helen
