Bella here with the farm and garden report for the week!
Mummy & The Shepherd went to a neighborhood party yesterday and a lot of the people there seemed to know who I was - they were glad that I was living here on the farm.
One nice lady surprised Mummy by saying that she had read our blog after coming down to see the lambs in the spring. She like the stories about the kitties and the sheep!
Mummy & I thought we'd take you on a little tour of the beautiful gardens here that The Shepherd works so hard on.
This is one of Mummy's favorite plants - it's just a plain old fern, but it is very lush and green. It is right by the spot where she parks her car when she gets home from The Salt Mines and she calls it her "decompression chamber"
Pretty pink lupine, don't you think?
These are two of The Shepherd's prized trees. He was going to chop down the one on the left because he thought it looked lopsided, but Mummy talked him out of it. She's really glad he left it.
The Shepherd is going to separate the bratty sheep babies from their mommies this afternoon. He is going to put them in the front pasture - I don't like them in there because they chase me when I try to walk out there! Plus it will probably be noisy!
This is a Chinese tree peony that is growing in the front yard.
We hope you've enjoyed this little tour of our garden. We hope you will take a few minutes and say "Hi" ! Have a good week!
