  5. That’s so interesting, Steve. The colors suggest an autumn scene. I think the little cabin would be a wonderful place to write.

    It’s a warm and inviting photo of an equally inviting place. Your comments about painting and such brought this to mind, from Walden:

    “β€œThere is some of the same fitness in a man’s building his own house that there is in a bird’s building its own nest. Who knows but if men constructed their dwellings with their own hands, and provided food for themselves and families simply and honestly enough, the poetic faculty would be universally developed, as birds universally sing when they are so engaged? But alas! we do like cowbirds and cuckoos, which lay their eggs in nests which other birds have built, and
    cheer no traveller with their chattering and unmusical notes. Shall we forever resign the pleasure of construction to the carpenter?”

    • We are very happy with our property and the yard. Mary Beth has several gardens which I helped create but she does the bulk of the planting and weeding. I am slowly adding native plants to the wooded area behind the shed.

      Thoreau! Of course he did build his own home albeit a temporary one. I’ve participated in home building but have not really built one myself and we inherited the shed when we bought this place so not even that. I think there is a lot to be said for building one’s own shelter and were I younger I would consider that as a starting over point in life. I have made some alterations to the inside of our house, built additional kitchen cabinets and some other things. And, yes, I did resign construction of our addition to a carpenter. πŸ™‚

  8. Beautiful light and colors. Sometimes spring almost looks like fall. The little shed provides a nice focal point.
