Warkworth Farmsit

We're farm sitting this week near Warkworth, Ontario and are delighted that summer has finally arrived. Temperatures in Northumberland county have been hot and humid, but recent rain showers have made the countryside lush and green.


We're slightly off the beaten path and it's an absolute joy to be in a home with virtually no street noise. Paradise! The most common sounds we hear are the coo of a mourning dove, plus a whinny, bray, meow and an occasional bark. Okay, I fibbed about the bark. Even the dog is quiet! Here's the crew....

Basil
Molly & Frannie
Ella
Kylie
Pookie
We caught Ella and Pookie sharing a friendly canine/feline kiss. Too cute! 


We're not surprised there is so much peace and harmony here. The views of the surrounding rolling hills are spectacular and the property itself oozes serenity. It's a lovely spot to meditate, stop and smell the flowers and admire its natural beauty.

I was impressed by this white lilac tree. I've never seen one so tall, but a quick Google search explained that while lilac bushes typically grow to ten feet a lilac tree can reach thirty. (FYI, the aroma is heavenly!) 


Housesitting in Ontario in the summer...what's not to love?!

  1. This looks like paradise - once again, you've found the spot! Can't wait to see some pics of the town of Warkworth. We loved it when we visited there back in March.

    1. Enjoying as we speak, Rosella. I'm sitting on the patio with Ella lying nearby. Such a gorgeous evening in southern Ontario!
