The Maple Hill Hop 40

Maple Hill Hop

Welcome to 
The Maple Hill Hop,
where we share posts about the outdoors!
What in the world is happening outside where you are?

This past weekend we decided to visit some yard sales
in nearby Lake Wales.
It's too hot to do much outdoors here in summertime,
but we got out early.

Wouldn't you know, the first one we found had plants for sale.
This guy had some of the most unique plants.
He showed me the extensive landscaping he'd done
on this little cottage.
He and his mom have quite the green thumb.
We chatted about gardening for a good, long time.

On another block close by,
we spied this chicken sign in someone's yard.
It represents this homeowner supporting the recent
"backyard chicken initiative" program we talked about here.
Go, chickens!

On our rounds, we stopped by Struthers,
to load up on local honey.
It's used to make my new favorite drink, honey lemonade.
Nothin' like it.

We enjoy supporting our local honey supplier.

No treasures were found,
but it was great gettin' out there
and spending time together.

What have you been doing outside?
