Catching the end of the day with my girl...and that ear...always that ear on full alert. 🐾 #bordercollie #borderpatrol #cottage #cottagelife #haliburton #ontario #exploreontario #discoverontario #sunset #atthelake #water #bluehour #sittingonthedock

I haven't a clue what type of flower this is...but it reminds me of Dr. Seuss. πŸ™ƒ#flower #garden #whatsinmygarden #perennial #brant #burford #ontario #flowerslovers #flowerstagram #floweroftheday

Volunteers. Rambunctious, highly energetic, over the top volunteers. If only they could help me with weeding. πŸ˜‰. #plantedbybluejays #sunflowers #volunteersunflower #volunteers #inmygardentoday #brantcounty #ontario #discoveron #ontarioadventures

Dinner tonight was at this tiny vintage-y country diner I discovered recently. The parking lot is always full, I figured that was a good sign and when the waitress asks if you need a menu, you know it's well supported by locals. We had the special, open faced hot beef with mashed potatoes. It was delicious. But what I really loved was the service. As the cook brought out the special to an older, obviously regular customer, she asked him if he needed it to be cut. Then she promptly sat down across from him and cut up his dinner for him. ❀️I'll take this over a fancy restaurant any day. And yes, I had pie. πŸ˜‚ #eatlocal #diner #countrydining #rurallife #discoverontario #exploreontario #ontario_adventures #ontario #brantcounty #princeton #jimslunch #cuisine #dinertime

Oh the joys of thrifting...when you're on the hunt for redoing a tween boys bedroom only to discover that your life has been incomplete without a vintage wool blanket, made decades ago in the town where your mom lives. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ #vintage #vintagewoolblanket #strathroywoollenmills #woolblanket #purewool #thrifting #vintagefinds #vintagestyle #vintagelove #vintagelover

A new sign overlooking my potager. For those of you who knew 'the old farmhouse', I travelled this road on my commute every day. A road with my favourite derelict barn, work horses and fruit trees. It's nice to share a few mementos of my first farmhouse love with my new flame. 😍#farmhouse #love #potager #repurposedsign #volunteersunflowers

The Timids aka The Lovebirds. I think they need first names. πŸ“πŸ˜‚. .

My #potager year two. We added raised beds this year and the starkness of it all made me wonder if I'd done the right thing. Now, it's my favourite place to hang out in the morning with a coffee in hand, until the chickens spot me through the window and get all excited. It's possible they associate me with treats, which, when it comes to chicken wrangling, is a useful thing. πŸ“πŸ˜‰ #raisedbeds #raisedbedgarden #growyourown #growyourownfood #eatlocal #eatfresh #burford #ontario #canada
