Hi everyone, hope you are enjoying your weather where you live!
Yesterday we had a wonderful rain that came through our farm. Thunder, thunder and thunder. Beautiful to the ears of people who want to know it is really spring!!!!!!!
Anyway ,I started to walk around the farm in my flip flops, nightgown, sweatshirt and capri pj bottoms. I was a babe! Well maybe only my honey thought I was a babe. Heehee!
Mr and Mrs. Puddle Duck were running from one mud puddle to another. Cracked me up!!!!
Mr. Red and his two girls as you see were drenched after the rain. Momma Calico was wet also.
Stopped by to see our daughter's bunny named Nelson. He was fine and quite dry and very happy along with the other farm animals that it had rained.
Came to the milk barn and found all the little babies needing water and food. Look at how they all look up and thank the Lord for their water. So cute.
Look at how Puddle and Duck are growing. That is one thing about ducks, they grow fast!!!
When I turned around to go out the door, this is what I saw. I really like this picture for some reason. Had to show it to you.
Along one side of the milk barn (the lane side) I saw how well my cone flowers were coming up from the winter. These are a favorite for me. They are beautiful to use for bouquets.
Off to go see how Little Miss Fluff was doing. Mud is squishing between my toes over my flip flops. She is doing so well don't cha think? She should hatch her eggs out this weekend or the beginning of the week. I can't wait. Did I tell you that some of our friends little girls found a duck egg up at the lake in our town? Well, I told them I could put it under Little Miss Fluff. We are praying that she will be able to have a baby duck. He will be a little mixed up. But that is okay. Every one needs a mom, right? The duck will be a little later. Hope it works! Trying to figure how to keep her on her nest. May have to take the babies from her so she will keep sitting. My neighbor "Farm Girl Gail", said her girl that is sitting can't take one more egg! How fun for Gail's girl to be having babies!
Well, how are you Mr. Turkey? He loves the rain also. If you notice the Guinea roosters have taken off quit a few tail feathers. They are just not very nice! Poor guy!
Before I went to the Potter's Shed I had to check out the rhubarb patch. It grows so fast and now with the rain it is going to take off! So many of you sent me recipes some time back, I must get them up on the blog! It is so pretty I think. If you didn't leave a recipe you can send one today or send us over to your blog!
Here is the left side entrance to the Potter's Shed!
This is the right side. See my wisteria plant? I have no clue what this "trellis thing" is. If any one know what it might be let me know. I have always thought it was so neat.
I came in and realized that big mean rooster had been into my little trough that had my lettuce, broccoli and cabbage. He had helped himself to some lettuce, scratched up some and scratched dirt over all the different plants. Not a Happy Momma, here!!!!!! You can't see real well with the picture, but some of the plants are gone and some have been chomped on. Not nice!
I had to put the screens back over the plants to keep him out. It still gets the sun and all, but I love to see all the plants without the screens on. I will have to take care of him!
Well for fun I thought I would put up the pocket I designed for Clarices Vintage Apron. I love how it turned out!!!!!! Part of the pattern is at the printers and the other part I am finishing up. I think we should be ready by the end of next week with the pattern!!! We will have it PDF so you can buy it right off the internet or in paper form!!!!! I am very happy that it is almost ready!
With my Dad's death it put me way back, but the Lord knew!!!!!
With the "blessing" of working and getting art to the Art Publisher, my days have been a little frazzled!!!! To many things going on at once, but I am so thankful! I believe the Lord is answering some of your ladies prayers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!!! Our family is so grateful!!!!!
Have a wonderful weekend. I will have one with my daughters at the Beth Moore conference. It is "So long Insecurities". Now I can use that one!!!!!!
