THE SKUNKS ARE GONE-THE LAVENDER FESTIVAL-THE EGG-THE TUESDAY FARMER’S MARKET IN GREENFIELD

GREETINGS

HOT and humid weather is with us now, it makes the garden grow.  Much needed rain may come tonight and tomorrow,  What we really need is a day of gentle rain.

THE SKUNK’S ARE GONE

To my sadness I found that they have been trapped and killed.  These joyful little things running and playing are now gone and  I have spotted one river  rat in my barn.  

The most shocking thing I found that My own state allows this to happen.  A person has the right to trap these animals and they MUST kill them immediately.   So now in my neighbor hood we have no skunks or opossums  Both may dig up lawns so they are not wanted.  Now we have ticks and rats..  I live in a country and community that think they can do anything they want to do with nature, kill anything they want to ,over fish the oceans and there will be no consequences.    Well there are consequences and they are here and all over our country.  Karma will and has come back to bite us all.  Fortunately there are many people who care about the land and animals and do their best to protect the environment.  But  there are lots of unintelligent people who do the opposite. I have sought help from the environmental Police but so far only information has come forward.  It’s all politics .  Anyone have any suggestions?

THE LAVENDER FESTIVAL

The weather was perfect, the crowds the best ever.  It was a wonderful two days.  I met loads of wonderful people and saw many old friends.  There were new vendors, sheep and Angora goats and a potter it was perfect.  Mark you calendar for the end of June next year.

THE EGG

I don’t know who laid this wonderful egg but its weight is off the scale

TUESDAY FARMER’S MARKET IN GREENFIELD

Located near Greenfield’s Market

Come on down, fresh veggies, yarn, soaps, salves, hot sauce, honey and so much more.  Today I have some cute pot holders and I will be working on a rug hooking project. Hope to see you there.

These pot holders will be there

THE WOOD PILE AND THE SWEET PEA VINE

Slowly the wood pile is getting stacked.  I may not have to buy wood this year, my son and I are thinning out some trees.  

I bought the sweet pea vine last summer.  It was  almost dead but revived but never grew much.  I don’t have luck with sweet peas but I love them so much.  This vine is dong so well, I can’t wait to see the flowers.

Many thanks for reading my blog on this cloudy, humid day. The bleeding hearts have gone and now the beautiful wild roses and Lilly’s have taken over.

It is awful about the skunks. They are cute and useful, but people still hate them. Sad. On a happier note. I LOVE those potholders! The chicken ones and the blueberry ones. I am looking for new potholders for our cottage. Could you set some aside for me? Thanks. I can get them when I bring the girls up..

Another busy weekend and I missed the Lavender Festival again! Darn it. I will try to make it next year.
Sorry about your wild buddies. It is tough fighting ignorance. A lot of people just don’t see the big picture. 😦
Finally, we’re getting a few showers – but we really could use a day of gentle rain as you said.
