(In case you missed Thursday's post about future plans...I spent yesterday with dear, dear friends on their farm "in-the-middle-of-nowhere"!)
Knee deep in clover!! I've heard that expression all my life...I have finally found someone who is actually "knee deep in clover"! Dr. M, PhD welcomes me to their little corner of paradise. She's standing in a patch of clover that is to be next year's garden! Green manure you know!
I took over 400 pictures yesterday and so to make this easier for all of us I've decided to work within categories. On today's agenda will be animals. Old MacDonald had nothing compared to this farm!
After five miles down a sand road I arrive at "the middle of nowhere" just where they want to spend the rest of their lives. Have to say it's not a bad idea!
We must leave the comfort of the front porch swing to be introduced to the animals! In later posts we'll get around to seeing the garden, the creek, the river, the babies (animals) and a whole tutorial on making cheese and butter! But for today...Animals!!!
Prepare to be jealous, Old MacDonald!!!
...and on this farm they had a peacock..
Every self respecting farm needs a few good mousers!!
...and what good is a farm without a few dozen of these?
...And then, the bee skeps... bees and clover...I'm thinking someone had better make some homemade bread so we'll have something to spread the honey on!
And down by the creek, (not to be confused with the river or the fork of the river), I found this little guy...patiently waiting for lunch to swim by.
(Speaking of lunch...I'm getting hungry so I'm going to post and run! As I wrote earlier, I have more photos for later but today I need to get ready for Stacey's bridal shower at SonMarie's new house.)I had so much fun yesterday...I could hardly sleep last night because I kept going over all the day's discoveries in my mind!
A Great Big Thank You and God Bless to
The Gentleman Farmer
Dr. M, PhD!
