Japanese Maple, Sunshine + Rat Barn, Oh My

Japanese Maple + Tin Barn
Japanese Maple + Tin Barn


Country livin’ at it’s best.
If you look closely…

You just might spy one or two critters!

Lovely little maple tree, tin barn from days of yore… So pretty a picture.
But that picturesque little tin barn is  completely stuffed with oodles of stuff we thought we HAD to keep along with many very large rats.
Well, water rats but a rat is a rat is a rat in my book!

When I take an evening stroll, I speed up when I pass by, just in case one jumps out to grab my stick!
Or my dog…

It took my maple about 3 years to reach the size you now see. It has about 7 more feet to go methinks.


Admit something!

Everyone you see, you say to them,
“Love me.”

Of course, you do not do this out loud, otherwise someone would call the cops.
Still though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect.

Why not become the one who lives with the full moon in each eye
that is always saying with that sweet moon language
what every other eye in this world is dying to hear?

  1. I love old, rusty roofs & lovely colors too

    1. Hi Switters! Glad you liked! Ordinarily I love the old rusty roofs on barns but this one isn’t behaving itself.😉

  2. Beautiful scene, even if it may have scary little critters running around. Bella is one sweet dog!!

    1. Hi Mary… Yes me too but these guys are suddenly out of control. I was in my courtyard a few nights ago and one ran straight up the garage wall, into the Rose trellis and out the pathway….SHIVERS !

      My sweet Bella is a wonderful dog tho not a ratter. Neither is Sophie, they scare her! 😉

      1. So funny, I forgot about sweet Sophie!

  3. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
