Truly Rural This and That


We are not farmers and I don't want to give that impression at all. 


 Even though I can not speak from experience, I know that farming is a lot of hard work.


We live in a rural setting, yet in the city limits of a tiny town.
My husband has a small garden every year.


A farmer rents property surrounding our home.


I have a tomato plant in a washtub.


There are deer, coyotes, weasels in the barn, cats in the barn, gophers in the barn . . .


 . . . and another yard animal that a friend made for me.
You couldn't get away with having this in a sub-division.



My signature coffee cup goes with me outside.
You have seen it before and probably will see it again.

Beautiful garden - and LOVE that shot of the water droplet!! By the way, what are you using for mulch?

You can send me those clogs when you're tired of them. :-)

Beautiful photos, Amy! It just goes to show you don't need a major farming operation to have a rural lifestyle. Love your "yard animal"!

Nancy said...

I think you live in a marvelous place, Amy -- living in a rural setting is really a way of life, rather than how much land you have or what you do for a living...

Love your garden shoes and your coffee cup! :)

Heather said...

I love your little piece of paradise.

I also live within the city limits of a small rural town. Took me decades to get here and I would never want to be anywhere else.

Unless I could live at the beach -- of course.

Those are cool shoes! I live in a tiny town with 1200 people. 1 block inside with rural all around, but I grew up on a grain farm so understand the hard work. Cool yard art!
