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' ~


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 ~ very frothy and smell heavenly

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

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...
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 *
