A Walk in the Country

Hubby and I went for a walk down the lane yesterday afternoon.
I've been wanting to visit a little house and ask if I could take some pictures. We met some new friends, Bob and Carol, who were more than happy to show us their little home in the woods.
They have a couple of acres that back up to some woods, which they've been clearing out a bit and doing a little landscaping. This place should be in Better Homes and Gardens!!!
Forgot to take a picture of the cute house, but this is quite the tidy, beautifully landscaped country cottage. Carol does a lot of whimsical painting on old metal buckets and watering cans...very cute!!

I love this old washer!

You can see a bit of the house here. Very northwest craftsman style.

A few ladders, a few watering cans...much inspiration!!!

Jackson was waiting for us when we got home. I love the label on the wagon!!! Good thing he can't read!!

The weather is supposed to be nice, nice, nice!!! A few (big) landscape plans around here!
Enjoy the sunshine!!
