GREETINGS

Lil checking for eggs this morning

Lil checking for eggs this morning

I can’t believe that I had to light a fire in the stove this morning.

It was only in the 40’s here.  More rain coming in so trenches were dug this morning and will be checked tonight.  We have had curious weather this spring.  The one thing I can count on each year is the Jewelweed plant .  It really doesn’t care if its warm or cold it just grows and grows.  I have pulled about 1000 plants and have so many more to get out before seeds form.

FOOTSTOOL

It’s been years in the making and now it  will become a pillow.  It will not fit into the footstool frame.  I will cover the footstool with a paisley  material that I love.

This is the first time I have ever heard of Hogweed.  A friend thought  she had it so I did some investigating online

Its listed as a Federal Noxious  plant.  It can grow up to 14 feet tall with leaves as large as 5 feet across.  DO NOT TOUCH THIS PLANT.  Touching the sap of this plant can cause sever burns, permanent scaring and even blindness.  

CHINESE LANTERNS

They have come back this year and multiplied.  I am glad I do love them in fall decorations.

ROSE PETALS

I am gathering and drying herbs for the chickens i the winter.  Today I picked the rose petals that fell on the ground.  I will dry them tomorrow.

The hogweed looks very similar to the English cow parsley but it sounds a lot nastier! The footstool cover/pillow looks lovely. x
