The sights we see while in the country


These were seen wandering around the countryside on two separate days. Me and my husband while out doing our inspections came across these beauty's when we stopped to complete our paperwork, both were just wandering across the back parts of the property, it was almost like they were posing for the camera. They were not the least upset that we had stopped to take their pictures, the deer just continued to eat her lunch and the turkeys were on high alert, because if you look very carefully at the picture, you can see atleast 6 little chicks trailing along after the adults, but they just continued their stroll across the back into the woods just beyond. 

I really miss seeing sights like this on a daily basis, what I would do to go back in time when we were first looking for a home, and insist that we had looked in the country instead of only looking at homes in a city setting. 

I am really starting to envision a possible quilt project in my future where I take all these pictures I have been accumulating, print them out on fabric and make a really nice country living quilt. :)

  1. What a beautiful post! I live out in the country so I'm so lucky to see these sights daily. Plus I work with wildlife to I really love animals!

    I pass quite a few farms on my way to work and every now and then I get up the nerve to pull over and take some pictures. People probably think I'm nuts but I don't care.

  7. Reminds me of my Los Angeles neighborhood: ducks, racoons, peacocks, possum, deer, herons and cranes!

  8. As a former quilter myself, think the idea of a countryside one is great - but quite a task. Look forward to seeing the finished results! I'm just sticking to my toys these days - they don't take so long to create or make and I love thinking about who might give them a home!

  12. Wow, I would love to see these sights, even once a year. I can't imagine what it would look like on a quilt (I'm not a quilter), but I'd love to see your creation :)

  13. My husband and I have always lived in the country. Recently we moved to our big house on 110 ac. and we just love it. We've had groups of fox squirrels, big red-headed woodpeckers, hundreds of birds, deer, and so much take up residence in our pecan orchard and surrounding woods. It's a little bit of heaven every day! I think a quilt like what you were talking about would let other people share in that a little bit. It would be beautiful!

  14. When I lived in the UK with David... before we hit the ocean.. we used to get squirrels and hedgehogs visiting our home. back in Africa the buck would come into our yard and eat my Mom's roses. It used to make her so mad! We also had Guinea fowl constantly visiting us...snakes too the Banded and King Cobras..very scary they were.. but my favourite was a bush baby or pookie. It's a small rotund squirrel like animal with big ears and huge huge eyes.. it's nocturnal and we had one come into the house once..so cute it stayed for about 3 days before it decided to change venues.
    Speaking of changing venues.. I'd like to let you all into a little experiment of mine.. have a look at these http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/art_on_fabric?filter_action=recent&info_action=&nav_action=all&shop_selection=all_recent&sub_action=new_profile
    Tell me what you think... There is a comment box at the bottom of each page.
    Cheers
    Sylvie
