life on the farm
where the flowers grow
Our small flock of chickens are a constant presence in the garden and the fields. They also have their own Twitter feed.
We also have three dogs, who spend equal time lounging inside on the furniture and roaming the property.
Several hives of bees enjoy the flowers and reward us with honey.
Is it really possible that summer is already here? Early summer is a time of fewer flowers than you might think -- the zinnias and sunflowers won't reach their peak for a while yet -- but no shortage of work. We're harvesting early summer blooms like snapdragons and dianthus, putting the ranunculus and anemone beds to rest, and getting ready for the explosion of dahlias and other summer flowers.
