...here it is Wednesday morning already ~
wow this week is flying' by!
we have had such nice weather ~ warm, sun, rain…
everything early April is supposed to be in Virginia.
here's our old farmhouse ~
oh she needs to be sided badly.
with every rainstorm she loses more & more of her paint…
but I love her still.
the warm temps and rains have been good to the soil here…
we already have patches of sweet annie all over the yard!!
our double-headed daffodils are full and sweet-smelling
...and our buttercup daffy's are soaking up the rains
gently nodding to us in approval ~
our little grape hyacinth that cousin Charlie gifted us with are in full-bloom ~
their deep-purple clusters are an eye opening pop of color…
~ I love them so ~
the tiny violas have again visited our lawns and the edges of our woods ~
their tiny faces smiling towards the sun.
you can keep fancy flowers ~
give me woodland & wildflowers and I'll love you forever!
here's our little farmshop in the morning fog…
waiting for the weekend to be once again opened up and filled with friendship & laughter ~
outside the shop's fence stands a small-but-strong forsythia…
wearing a changing dress of her flowers into young green leaves ~
...here is my Harry Lauder Walking Stick bush ~
it is awesome!
it is now almost 5 yrs old and has grown healthy & strong...
at the moment, it has made it's catkins
...and they will turn yellow before dropping off and the leaves will begin to grow.
can you see how wonky the branches grow?
our dear, sweet & faithful old-man dog 'Lazy'
was snoozing on the barn porch before being woken up by a guinea hen…
don't you love the look on Lazy's face?
and here's our bad-girl 'Roxy'…
she is not really bad.
well, she can be.
not mean or anything like that,
...just very head-strong and sometimes just doesn't want to cooperate.
~ a typical child.
we love her still :)
I finished the first design in the
series of punch needle that I'm working on…
~ here's a snippet:
~ and the one below will be finished today,
then the third will be started….
Have a beautiful day my Friends ~
find joy in every little thing!
~ Blessings from the Farm ~
