Tree Harvest

tree harvest

A tree harvest has been happening in the woodlot to the right of the hill leading to Drumbo. It appears to be a harvest of walnut trees. The sign on the lot advises that people need to stay out of the lot for their safety. This seems like a good idea because there are many trees leaning so much that they look like they could fall to the ground at any time.

Goodbye Loft – Hello New Brunswick!

After a year of living in the loft at Gail and John Ashby’s house, Ian and Catherine Saxby are now moving. I will miss Ian, he taught me a lot about art, and is really really nice. This is a painting he did of the Wolverton house – it took him about a year to complete because it is so detailed. I got to paint beside him this summer and do my own Wolverton house picture. It was really fun (and really hot).

Happy Halloween

Halloween night was great, it drizzled a bit but everyone had lots of fun. I had a Cleopatra costume, my friend Ethan was a Zombie hunter. We went all over town and the decorations were so scary. Skye’s decorations were the scariest. He had a body hanging from a rope and a skeleton riding a sled through the air. There were also lots of really fun Halloween decorations. The costumes we saw were great too. There were cooks and lobsters, little red riding hood, Anna from Frozen, Wednesday from the Adams Family, and so many more. There was even a dog wearing a princess costume!! It got super rainy after Halloween was done – really happy it waited!  Enjoy this Wolverton Halloween slideshow!

Fabulous Jack-o-lanterns

Ian

Ian VanWeerdhuizen, a grade 9 student who lives at the farm past Charlie’s and right after the train tracks, has some great jack-o-lanterns that he is selling. He has big pumpkins, little pumpkins, long pumpkins, round pumpkins, smooth pumpkins and bumpy pumpkins. You name it you can find it at his place. His pumpkins are awesome. I’m excited to get his pumpkins for Hallowe’en. He is selling pumpkins, now that Charlie isn’t able to, and he’s using the money for his grade 10 class trip to Vimy Ridge in France for the 100th anniversary of the battle. The pumpkins will be at the end of the lane of their farm starting on the weekend of the 19th/20th of September.

Here is my interview with Ian: Continue reading September 18th, 2015
