CANADIAN GEESE-THE LAVENDER FEST-THE ROBIN

28 06 2015

GREETINGS

Its been raining hard off and on all night.  At this point it seems that I won’t be setting up at the Fest today.  Chris made sure that everything was dug out so no water came in the barn.

CANADIAN GEESE

Since I moved her 18 years ago geese have made nest on this property, showing their goslings how to walk on the side of the road and how to cross it and the best places in the neighborhood to get a meal.  Its one of those things in this fast pace world that slows you down for a few moments just to watch them.

THE LAVENDER FEST

Yesterday was a perfect day for the Lavender Fest.  Cooler temps and a cloudy day made things perfect.  They had the biggest attendance ever.  I sold quite a bit of salve and met so many nice people.

This is Marty she is Sandy’s sister (Sandy hosts the Lavender Fest).  SHe bought my Norwood Loom and want to show me her first project on it.  I am so glad that the loom has gone to such a wonderful home.  Great Job.

ROSE GERANIUM SALVE

The rose geranium salve is done.  I thought i had a brilliant idea but ir didn’t work out.  I thought I would grind up some rose petals to put in the salve. but had to strain them out.  A lesson learned.  The salve came out nice with a subtle, musky smell of roses.

THE ROBIN

A the fledglings should be gone from the nest in the Crabapple tree but there is one  who won’t leave the nest.  It’s as big as its mother.  There are some kids that never want to leave the nest!

Pity about being rained out – we had 2.5″ overnight and still coming down albeit in drizzles. The plants are happy, I think!
