The Vicarage is an eclectic place with lots to explore and discover. We have plenty of live animals of course. 3 dogs and a cat. Flocks of birds gather in the twisting vines, shrubs and trees around the property and several families of squirrels live here as well ( I am afraid some have taken up residence in the back porch roof). But we also have lots of fake animals about in various forms.
This little guy really likes the daffodil garden…although right now I think he is living in my cellar.
Pooh is happy we found him (he was an old dog toy that got buried in the garden). He really likes living on our porch now. It’s better than being one foot under.
This cat lives in my sketch book with many other animals.My sketch book has been sadly neglected recently. I hope to get back to it sometime soon. “Good Lord willin’ and the crick don’t rise”. Of course, it is coming toward spring and the crick always rises then ….sooooo.
Brenda helped decorate the extension beds to the catywhomnpus gardens last summer. She painted this bed as a pocket watch attached to the rabbit.
DO YOU DECORATE YOUR GARDENS WITH STATUARY? I AM THINKING OF BUYING A FEW LARGER PIECES IN THE SPRING.
DO YOU SKETCH OR PAINT? DO YOU DO ANIMALS OR SCENERY?
One of this year’s blogging goals for me is to really focus on building community, and as Cee said, “This challenge both new and archived photos are allowed. The main purpose of this challenge is to create community and get to know each other through photography.”
Cee and I live at opposite ends of the country, but like her I live in a pretty small community. This is Central Street in my home town.
That green and white building in the background used to be my family’s restaurant. We sold it after my father died back in 1991. It has been empty for going on a decade now.
This is the house where I grew up and now live. We call it The Vicarage.
That is the steeple of my grandparents’ church…the first church where I youth pastored back in 1992-1995.
