  • I'll admit that it's pretty, but we three Englishes (and our feathered friends!) are SO very ready to be done with snow and frost and chill.
  • It's always a good day when @joythebaker stops by. Thanks for sharing food stories, sipping tea, strolling the property, and playing with our Wild child. Safe travels on your southern road trip, and beyond!!!
  • Was weeding the patio and looked up to find this little gnome picking daffodils.
  • Follow the red brick road? Indeed I did.
  • The best part of @fernworks and @killaspro traveling to Southeast Asia in January? The Thai food cooking kick they've been on since their return. Still thinking about these crazy delicious wings @fernworks made last night (using the recipe from @pokpokpdx). Thanks for having us over, buddies!
  • Back at home but missing this sight, from #selbygardens.
  • Family, gardens, and sea creatures are what characterized our time in Florida. I could stare at these exquisite jellyfish all day.
  • Nothing could be finer than to be back in North Carolina. Missed these mountains something fierce!
  • A late winter trip to Florida was exactly what we three Englishes needed, but we are glad to be headed back home to greet the spring in the magical mountains of western North Carolina.
  • Something wicked this way comes. At the Magic Kingdom. First time here as a parent. At Huxley's request, went on the Haunted Mansion ride first. Let the good times roll!
  • Surfside in Sarasota at the in-law's lovely home, light breeze, good reads, good times. Next, on to my dad's place in Tampa. Florida, you're doing good. Reeeeeeeeal good.
  • Rollin in the deep. Sarasota, you've been grand.

Weekend Review

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you had a good weekend. Ours was full of all of this goodness:

*Grilled cheese, 3 ways
*Mountaintop farm vistas
*Fresh eggs
*Apple trees
*Red okra
*Baby chicks
*Pepper farms
*Smoking peppers
*Future farmers of America
*Honey extracting with friends
*Autumn frittatas on the patio
*A wood-fired mountain-side pizza party

It was unquestionably the most idyllic welcome to autumn I could have ever imagined or possibly hoped for. And a great way of relaxing in preparation for our pending trip this weekend-NYC, we 3 Englishes are coming your way!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful week ahead!

*Little images from me; big ones from Nicole.

    Lovely photos as usual! You need to have a B&B so I can visit and take Ashley Workshops :)

    Suggestion – maybe you could consider in the future putting captions under each of them so we can read about what we are looking at as we go rather than scrolling back and forth to the bottom to figure out what we’re looking at?

  • Ditto on the workshops! :) I love every one of your posts, they are all so great! Question: Have you ever had Auracauna chickens? We have 3 of them, along with 2 barred rock and 1 rhode island red. Do you know when the Auracaunas start laying? I have your “Keeping Chickens” book and ADORE it. Along with every single one of your other books ;). We are slowly going from a very busy life in a newer subdivision and hoping to transition to a smaller home with enough land to do the types of things you’re doing. Thanks so much for your great posts and your awesome examples.
