Good News

It was a perfect weekend...
just the right blend of work and fun!
Saturday was spent visiting a few greenhouses and antique markets
followed by time spent with friends...
celebrating Cinqo de Mayo (eating wonderful Mexican food)
and watching the Kentucky Derby (without our hats!).

Did you see Saturday evening's moon rising?
It was spectacular.
Close to the earth.
Big and full and the Man in the Moon had a big smile on his face!


Sunday was a cloudy day...
what we call a "piggy" day...
a mild day with no sun, temperatures right around 70 degrees...
oh so comfortable for working around the farm...
and the best weather for the pigs! (They mind the heat.)


After morning chores we had our traditional Farm Breakfast.
Fresh from the garden...
asparagus, spinach, kale, and chives...

chopped and saut├ęd to use as the stuffing of a fluffy fresh duck egg omelet.
Lemon blueberry scones on the side.

Several hours of garden work...
watering,


planting,


weeding.


Gardening was followed by a walk with the Nigerian Dwarf goats...


What a fun adventure they had.

Running...


munching on wild raspberries...


 and nibbling on tasty branches.


I had to have a talk with Star....reminding her that when it was time to come back in,
she had to be a good leader and get her family home!


And she did just that...
led them all home for their supper.

But the best thing of all is this...

Edith has been found.


She has made a nest beneath some honeysuckle at the edge of the woods,
and is sitting on eggs.
Three more weeks of waiting, and we just may have baby turkeys on the farm!

PS:  Thanks to Amanda (Manny Bee) for sharing her photos!
