  Her poems are about her life on the farm.  SHe and her husband, Ed own Tregelly Farms in Hawley, Ma.    THey have a wonderful assortment of animals, from Yaks and sheep to camels.    A wonderful place to visit, their farm is a piece of heaven.

The horse-drawn wagon ride is always a draw.  There were all sorts of animals, a chicken show and a rabbit show.  CHildrens games, lots of food, the Heath Library always has a tent full of wonderful books for a dollar or two.  Pony rides and a petting zoo.                  I couldn’t resist taking a picture of these ducklings.  There were so cute.    No I am not getting any!   Ricky had a great time at the fair and enjoyed all the animals and games,

A GATHERING OF FRIENDS

A group of us have been demonstrating at the fair for years.  It’s educational for the public and a great deal of fun.  Today there was 6 of us.  Ruth, Jill, myself, Cynthia, Lynn and Jane.  All sorts of fiber was being spun and I did some hooking on the pumpkin/cat piece.   The fair has been something for us all  to look forward too.  Some years there were  8-10 people doing fiber things.  Lynn and I did skirt one of my fleeces too.

Pattie and I meet today.  She follows my blog and we both follow the  blog Permaculture in Ireland.  I had bags of sheep poop mixed with hay for her.  SHe is gardening by the Ruth Stout method.  We chatted like old friends, it was so great to finally meet her.  We both buy pottery from the same potter in Corifin, COunty Claire, Ireland!!!!!!    We made plans to meet in September for a  learn to spin day.

HAPPY DAY TO YOU

 





MINI COOPER-THE GARDEN-THE HEATH FAIR-THE HERB BED

17 08 2012

Hello

I am back from Florida.  It was an interesting trip.  When we got to Avis Car rental in Orlando they didn’t have any compact cars left!!!!!!!  He offered me a sub-compact and it only had two doors.  I was just about to refuse when he said it was a Mini Cooper.  Oh I will take it I said.  I love Mini’s and my daughter Cindy and I have always wanted one.

                                                                                                                       

                                 

 

 

THE HEATH FAIR

The heath fair starts tonight and Ricky and I are going to set up.  We may stay for the chicken supper .  It will be good to bring most of stuff there today and tomorrow I am bringing the fleeces of Sally and Lucy to skirt and then they can be shipped off to the mill to be made into yarn. We will be there on Saturday see you there.

 

THE GARDEN

While we were gone the plants in the garden went wild.  The Herb Bed  has grown by leaps and bounds and the bottlenose gourds that I planted have grown up to the sheep pasture and down to the chicken area.

HAPPY DAY TO YOU
