Farmhouse Morning ~

…For the past week, we've been waking up to these little friends ~
(I completely forgot to mention them and I do apologize to Momma Hen)

~ 4 little 'ditties' ~

hello!



Momma stands guard while they eat their mash



pretty little peep

and I wanted to take a couple snaps of the garden,
before the rains come and knock off all of the flower petals ~

here are some of our Lily of the Valley
that my sister Louisea gave me…


i love them ~


and our Iris are beautiful this year:





















the white ones are ethereal ~ 
...so very frothy and smell heavenly





please excuse our weeds ~
and remember :
"Never complain about the weeds in another woman's garden…."
:)







and
as I headed back to the farmhouse,
I caught this gentle-man loving on one of his kittens ~



Peter & Sugar Britches

he loves them so much ~





I want to mention here that we have received numerous
cards, letters and gifts from very kind folk regarding Buddy's passing ~
and to keep your kindness and thoughtfulness private, 
I will not mention your names here...
BUT
PLEASE know how deeply you have all touched us 
and how very thankful we are to have such friends in our lives 
~ who remember us in such sad moments.

wishing you all a Peaceful day my friends!!

* Blessed be * 
Lori

Your Irises are lovely. Mine are just about to "pop"....if this morning's thunderstorm didn't flatten them.

Sweet smelling Iris against a grey picket fence are the epitome of charm, and baby chicks are such tiny peeping gifts of Spring. Don't you just love life on a farm?!
