Albert County in March...


Hello everyone.. 
Hope you had a great weekend.. 
Just posting a few pics we took on a little drive we went on through Albert County today.. 

You who visit here often know that my heart loves Albert County.. A rural area of our province where our old farm is that we visit when we can..  
Where we lived when I was a child and where most of my paternal relatives still live..
Where my Dad is laid to rest in a cemetery along with four sets of grandparents .. 
There is something so lovely about the place..

We are having such a great Winter here in New Brunswick.. 
Hardly any snow at all, thank the Lord.. 
We had so much last year that we are being rewarded, I think.. grin..

One of the pics is of a road sign that is called Suicide Trail.. 
Albert County folks have a great sense of humour.. 
I was scared Terry was going to try the road out but then we saw all the snow..sigh... Good.. smile.. 
We did go up one terribly muddy and rutted road and I told him that was not what I signed up for today.. 
I love going for drives but not down those kind of roads although I am sure he will manage to travel a few before they all dry up.. smile.. 

We were driving down the road and I said to stop.. 
He obeys me sometimes and we backed up as I saw some bright green growing .. 
It was the ferns above.. 
Just as bright and alive as could be.. 
I thought ferns died in the fall .... 
Didn't you? 
That was the only patch I saw, though.. 

Well, dear hearts, thanks for dropping by.. 
It is March break here .... 
Hoping the kids all have a good break... 
Looking forward to another busy week... 

Take care my friends and as always I look forward to hearing from you.. 
I hope you leave me a note... 
God bless..

  1. Hi Faye, Love the ferns! Will you try to root those ferns and plant them in the spring? Last week when I was at one of our biggest supermarket chains here,(Wegman's), they had some of the fiddleheads for sale in their giant produce section. They must have them sent in here from someplace else in the country of maybe Canada!

    Good to hear you are doing well. Our back toads look just like yours. We have been taking more rides this year again. Oh, we love it!

    1. I'd say another sign of early spring as there are some Robins :-)

  3. Faye, I am glad you didn't have as much snow as last year. It seemed to just go on forever didn't it? I remember feeling so sorry for you all and wished I could send over some of our hot weather to warm you up ;-)

  4. We have had a mild winter too, apparently one of the mildest on record.

  5. I am sooooooooo thankful we didn't have the type of winter we had last year. My bulbs are sprouting and I have little green shoots up. Spring is just around the corner. Have a wonderful day, Faye!

  7. Hello, We are having an early spring, but we have had no snow and that is not good at all. You live in such a lovely area! I also enjoyed your header!!
    I think spring always arrives just in the knick of time...
    Hugs, Roxy

  8. Your photos are beautiful! And I love your blog header. Did you recently change it or did I not notice until now? lol. I just noticed my daffodils popping up through our mulch this afternoon.

  9. Hi Faye...love your new header...I am partial to anything with birds in it! I remember all the pictures you posted last year and the amount of snow you had....so glad you are enjoying a milder winter this year. We have lots of wild ferns around our place and they stayed green all winter..but then living in Alabama might account for that. We have had a mild winter here and since we moved back here last July we are enjoying it very much. Last winter in Missouri was bad too. Enjoyed the pictures and hope you have a lovely week. Linda

  10. Beautiful and so inviting. May I ask, "Are those onion skins in the pot"? I
    am curious as I've never heard of putting or using onion skins. Thanks for this post and for your response.

    1. Hi.. Yes those are onion skins .... This was a fish soup so the onion skins add a bit of colour... I take them out before serving the soup... I like to use cheesecloth sometimes like for chicken gravy but I didn't have any at the farm.. Something I need to remember to take .. The onion skins add colour to anything that may be a bit on the light side.. .smile.. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comment...xo

  11. I remember many drives in Albert Country on the backroads when I was growing up. It really is a beautiful place to visit. It was one of my brother's favourites and he lived there for over 30 years and now lies there. I don't know about all ferns but the ones in our yard died even with no snow. Interesting you found some green ones. Have a wonderful week Faye.

  12. Hi Faye -
    I like the new picture on your blog header. What a sweet little bird house. The mild winter we're having is wonderful. Mid 60's today and a promise of 70 degrees for tomorrow here in SE Pennsylvania. Albert County looks like a bit of heaven. Like you, I love a good ramble down a country lane. The soup looks interesting, Ill bet it was yummy. Nothing smells as good as a pot of homemade soup simmering on the stove. So comforting. Thanks for sharing your pics. Love them as usual.

  17. Beautiful photos!! Our ferns usually die back in the winter, but it has been so mild this year that both of my huge ones from last summer are doing well :^0
    I love your picture with the rainbow-y streaks on the left side....really lovely!
    Blessings to you,
    J
