For the Love of Allium

Posted by F&S

As Martha wrote on her blog today, we’ve been getting much too much rain and we, dogs, couldn’t get outside too much to explore.  Many things are blooming, or beginning to bloom in the garden, including all the allium, and we finally got to enjoy their beauty.

Sharkey Bakes a Soufflé

Sharkey Bakes a Soufflé

Posted by Sharkey

I was in the mood to bake a soufflé and I asked Thomas Joseph from the TV kitchen if he would be willing to come to Bedford and give me a hand.  A soufflé is a combination of custard and beaten egg whites and when it comes out of the oven, it should be puffed …

Tracking Wild Animals

Tracking Wild Animals

Posted by Francesca

On yesterday’s blog, I was out hunting for dogwood trees and found some in the woods.  After satisfying my dogwood urge, and since I was already in the woods, I decided to partake in some animal tracking, one of my favorite pastimes.  There are so many interesting scents to pick up and follow in the …

Searching For Dogwood

Searching For Dogwood

Posted by Francesca

There are so many flowering trees at our farm in Bedford, but for some reason, Martha hasn’t planted one of my favorite varieties, the dogwood.  I’ve been reading up on dogwood and from my findings, it seems that the bark of one of the European species, when boiled in water, was once use for washing …

A Museum for Frenchies? I Don't Think So!

I hadn’t been to the blog studio in a while so I decided to go inside.  I was kind of surprised to see that Francesca and Sharkey use the space as an art museum all about them.  Well, that’s something that’s definitely got to change!

Martha's Motor Scooter in Bedford

Posted by Sharkey

You may remember from a previous Wag from last July that Martha has a motor scooter in East Hampton.  It’s such a cute little thing and so much fun to ride.  Well, you can imagine my surprise when I found that very same scooter in the equipment barn in Bedford.

Searching for Beauty in the Woods

Sharkey and I were driving around in the Kawasaki recently in search of some beauty in the woods.  Sharkey was uncertain which road to take so we stopped and asked for directions and we finally found what we were looking for.

Shedding Our Winter Coats

Shedding Our Winter Coats

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I were outside the other day, when she suddenly realized that Sasa, the horse, was no longer wearing his warm winter coat.  That caused her to go into a silly tirade about how we are no longer wearing our fashionable cold weather wardrobe and she was actually lamenting that fact!  Honestly, Sharkey can …

Our Latest Visit to the Stable

Our Latest Visit to the Stable

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

There seemed like a lot of action at the stables the other day, so Francesca, Sharkey, and I went to check it out.  Linda, the farrier, was there and it’s always great to see her.  Betsy was also getting ready to take Ramon out for a ride.  And it seemed that Ramon had a few …

A Springtime Venture Into the Woods

A Springtime Venture Into the Woods

Posted by Francesca

We, Frenchies, decided to wander out into the woods for a little adventure.  There is always so much to see in the spring and we wanted to explore a bit out of our usual bounds.  Just footsteps into the wooded area, there are rushing brooks and all sorts of new vegetation to behold.  And you …
