Even the naughtiest little boy...
is angelic when he sleeps...
(check out the sweet little smile on his lips!)
I caught Ollie in the midst of REM sleep.
He was completely zonked,
but opened his eyes and fluttered them.
In another moment, his eyes slowly closed....
and back into his dream he went.
That is, until another little naughty boy came along and woke him up...
"Hi Sammy, wanna play?"
"Not really," said Sammy. "I just wanted to wake you up!"
It was a peaceful Spring weekend here on the farm.
Hubbs and I spent the weekend alone,
cleaning the barn, organizing the tack room, and finishing some gardening projects.
Nighttime temps have been a bit chilly here...low 30's,
so I still have not been able to plant flowers and vegetables.
I did, however, finish this project....
An old ladder with galvanized buckets bolted fast to the rungs will serve
as a planter for a large cascade of flowers.
I also fashioned a cat-proof, chicken/guinea-proof wire cage for the fairy garden.
It attaches in the back and can be lifted in the front for easy access.
Now I have no worries that marauding critters will destroy my village.
I have had to cover this at night with plastic to protect the little plants from frost.
Within the next few weeks, temps will stay warm enough for even the tenderest seedlings,
and gardening will become a full time job!
