The Good Life in Farm Country


The garden tours near Millwood took me through prosperous horse country. These springtime scenes include some barns for Tom's Barn Collection, and I'm also linking to Seasons.



This chimney is not an old remnant of a house chimney. It's a modern structure built specifically to provide a home for birds: chimney swifts!

  1. Great that they want to preserve the environment, like attracting chimney swifts! Thanks so much for adding this interesting feature to SEASONS - inspiring!
    Have lived for a few decades the the L.A. Basin, so yes, it's a completely different landscape here closer to Sacramento and Yosemite Nat. Park, as well as hot to summers and colder winters! "See" you next week! Have a good one (this week)!
