Summer 2016

Well hello again!  I’m still here but have obviously taken a break from this  little blog of mine.  It’s been a busy and fun summer so far and hope to be back with some stories soon.  Until then ……


Savoring Summer

As summer of 2015 is setting, I just wanted to capture some pictures here on the farm before time gets away.


Loved these African Daisies all season.  The blue centers had me at hello:)


We had to replace some of the landscaping in the front this year due to the rough winter.  Knockout roses don’t disappoint.  I may have to go back to the nursery for another one!




The Black-Eyed Susans in the background survived this year as did the hanging baskets.

There’s always this to look forward to….



Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Well, hello world!

Sorry to have left you at Easter.  It’s been a long time but a happy and fun filled summer.

We watched a niece graduate:


Enjoyed time on the farm:



And had a chance to get away to the ocean.


Love these memories as they will be thought of as we head into the busy season of school and work.

Hope all is well!

Bye, Bye Birdie?

Welcome spring…..finally!

Today just feels like spring might actually be serious about arriving…hopefully it’s not an April Fool’s prank, however one never knows!

Someone who has arrived like clockwork though, are the robins.  And while they are beautiful, and I love hearing their sweet songs, I am not a fan of them nesting on our porches.  They leave quite a mess!

And so I’m playing offense here and hoping it works.  They say that noises and reflective, shiny things may deter the feathered friends.

I’ve also tried stacking tennis balls on top of our porch posts….

Judge if you must, however we do have 72 acres for them to reside:)

We shall see….
