~ Easter Weekend & in the News ~

Hello Friends & Folk!
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter Weekend from all of us ~

I purchased these beauties below and will put them in the ground this afternoon ~
my very favorite variety of Daffodil...

I also brought home 2 tiny white tulip plants,
 2 purple hyacinth, and a handful of tiny tête-à-tête daffy's ~

while I was snapping photos, 
a big old fuzzy bumbler-bee stopped in for a landing on my fingertip.
{this is actually a male Wood Bee, and while they will fly into your face of hover in front of you in a threatening way...they do not have stingers}

our Lily of the Valley are sprouting and will soon fill the shop garden with their sweet scent
and tiny white bells ~

did you know that one of my favorite perfumes, 
 muguet du bois by House of Coty
was released in 1941?

here is our Forsythia ~ vibrant and strong this year...

and take a look at our Pussy Willows!
all of the silvery catkins reaching up to the sun!

...our tiny Grape Hyacinths have returned again too,
and are popping up everywhere ~

a double bloomer daffy!
and I just noticed one of the dogs have chewed on the small picket fence. 

  I looked out my sewing room window to find this peaceful scene ~
our donkeys, our sheep and in the paddock with the donkeys,
three deer!


 In Other News ~
our little shop is coming along!

Peter has put hundreds of hours into it already, 
and I can't wait till you see it....
when will that be you ask?

We will be reopening on Saturday, April 21st
10:00 ~ 4:00
woot woot!!

 and here are a just few peeks inside the shop:

new lace curtains grace the freshly painted windows ~
new shelving below the windows and around the shop will hold goods...

Peter painted one of our old cupboards {below}
~ with a beautiful coat of light grey enamel paint!

...and what a difference in displaying our Valdani Threads now ~ 
which are housed nicely in ball jars and labeled for your convenience...
{still making labels ;)}


we have brought in new rolling racks to house all of our wool,
and are in the process of filling them up...

shiny & new!

I will share more photos as we progress, 
we are so excited to reopen and have you all back for a visit!

Blessings from the Farm
