Thoughts and pictures of my wanderings through the Allegheny Mountains hunting grouse and woodcock with my Ryman-type English Setters during the fall and winter months, fishing for smallmouth bass in local streams and rivers during the summer months and wandering over my 66 acres of heaven year round.

Signs of Spring around the Homestead
The bees are busy.
The apple trees are in bloom.
The vernal pond is full of water and teeming with tadpoles.
An interesting nest has appeared in one of my bird boxes. A Chickadee or perhaps a Nuthatch??
My grafting skills seem to have improved. In future years I'll be enjoying old-fashioned apples with names like Pomme Gris, Red Limbertwig, and Newt Grindle to name a few. Let the average person eat their store bought Red Delicious & Yellow Delicious, I'll be savoring these old apples from the past.
