Abandoned farmhouse...how I would love to get inside...there are curtains on the windows, and I wonder what was left behind..
My first trip north after Winter is always exciting. The landscape is still barren, and a little snow about, but I always get really geared up to see what's been going on in Small town Ontario since I was last here. I thought readers from afar may enjoy seeing a glimse of the rural Canadian countryside.
We stopped at the Pie Company. I like to buy their cherry pies and make cherry pie ice cream.
There is a large Mennonite population, so the local establishments still provide hitching posts.
Where else but the country can you see shelves stacked with homemade preserves?
The Spring runoff is crazy this year, many fields are flooded.
But the skies were blue and the livestock are feeling the Spring.
The bookstore is not yet open for the season. Reminds me of the wild wild West.
We saw some interesting characters...and I think we were supposed to go that way...
We got an invite to look around a farm..
And saw some cute boys.....
....and these boys are useful. The farmer puts "goat packs" on their backs and takes them into the bushes raspberry picking. The goats carry the raspberries and also the picnic lunch. Really.!!! Aparently, goats don't run off like a dog could as they like to stay within site of the pack...
And found some new places to eat.
Best of all, we found some wonderful treasures. Ironstone plates, vintage linens, milk bottles, tons of McCoy Pottery and a heap of Grindley Peach Petal dishware, brown and white transferware, egg baskets, baby scales, gorgeous green glass medicine bottles.....
tomorrow I will wash it all and photograph it so I can show you all on Monday.
Have a great Sunday.
