Down a dirt road, past fields and deep woods ~
stands a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof...
it's here at our beloved Notforgotten Farm that you will find me...

chasing kittens, puttering in the gardens or talking to the tree.

I love seeing the past through the eye of a needle ~
...I collect old & odd things.
I pull wool & cotton through linen. I walk barefoot in my garden and throw my head back and cackle when I laugh...

I'm just a little farm-witch that loves where I am & who I'm with ~

I was reading another blog and thinking, it is just about time for another morning stroll through Lori's farm as the sun is shining here so its a great day for a walk.You can imagine how happy I was when I got to your blog and discovered all the great shots of your fur friends around the farm. It is good to see everyone is doing so well after such a winter.You have inspired me to get out in the garden today.Thanks for sharing.

Karen Martinsen said...

Oh Lori, I need one of those sweet little fur balls!!! Oh the white one is just too cute....well they all
Love looking at your pictures

Debra said...

I like all of your animals, but the kittens make me melt! I didn't know about Billy the peacock. My daughter lives on a farm in Wilton, CT, and she has a peacock who just showed up! He apparently likes to pal around with the resident wild turkeys!

Love the kitties! I grew up with litters of kittens every Spring, and I do miss it so! We have 4 cats, but they are all adult. I have fostered dogs before, but I may volunteer to foster kittens for the shelter down the road this summer. Just not sure if I could give them up! One of our barn kittens years ago had the respiratory illness and I thought it was going to die--the vet gave it amoxicillin which did nothing and then it was cured by Lincosin (a tetracycline). She was a gorgeous calico--my favorite! Love your farm and all your photos!

Cranberry Morning said...

I have no idea how I found you, but I enjoyed this post. And it was one more step toward getting chickens. Now I need to drag out my Murray McMurray catalog. I so enjoyed the pics of the beautiful animals on your farm.

Happy Spring Lori, oh how I could love one of those kittens!

Sharon said...

Were there four kittens to start? I love all the farm friends only thing missing is sheep, I grew up in a farm and had every kind of pet I could want esp lambs

Lori from Notforgotten Farm said...

One of the kittens has passed ~ the smallest little tiger, leaving us with the three in the photos ~ poor little baby ~
and yes! we have sheep, they weren't in a photo-shoot mood that day!

I love those sweet kitties and i was wondering too about the fourth one. Too sad that It died.

Thank You for sharing, Felicia Hamlin Minnesota
