A DREAM COME TRUE-WILD PHLOX-FRANCIS

2 06 2016

GREETINGS

Delightful weather is here with some needed rain tomorrow and Sunday.  I am starting to put in the garden today, late as usual.  It always works out.

A DREAM COME TRUE

Tomorrow night my daughter, Cindy will graduate from Law School.

Its been a dream of her since she started college.  It was put on hold for many reasons.   When she decided to go ahead with it nothing could stop her.  She persevered through serious health problems, the sudden death of her beloved Mother in Law and other obstacles.  Tomorrow night she will get her degree and all will be worthwhile.  I am so proud as is her Husband Rick , her two sons, and her extended family  She will go on helping others.  My Dad and Mom will be watching from above and cheering her on.

WILD PHLOX

I don’t know where they came from. Maybe from some tansy that I got along side the road.  But I love them they have filled in and created a path way to the side yard chickens.  The smell is heavenly.

FRANCIS

Francis is going on 14 this summer.  She usually lays beautiful blue eggs in the summer, and loves dirt baths.  You can see age in her eyes but she still goes out every day, looks for worms and takes her dust bath.  She will often, these days come in and take a little nap and head out again later in the afternoon.

MR. PEEPERS AND CHICKEN LITTLE-THE GRANGE FAIR-VISIT WITH FRIENDS-THE PATHWAY

24 08 2014

GREETINGS

Its a cool morning here on the farm.  The kind of morning where you fingers start to tingle just a little.  A sign of cooler days.  The yellow jackets were out in full force even stinging Jane one of the weavers.  

GOOD MORNING WORLD

The two boys delightful crows are nice to hear in the mornings.  The crows are not as harsh as Hazel’s and not as deep and loud as Murphy’s.  Maybe that will change as they age they are only 4 months old

THE PATHWAY

The pathway to the side yard is delightful to walk in after a little rain.  I think the rain enhances the smells of the Rugosa Roses , Tansey and the Phlox.  The combined smells linger in the air.IMG_3593

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope your day is enjoyable.  Carole
