A Garden Tour Means Cookies!!! Or Not

Posted by F&S

Some of you commented that you couldn’t see the images from Monday’s blog about G.K. wanting to be a squirrel chaser.  Therefore, we made an executive decision to let it run a second day in hopes that it could be viewed by all.  Our apologies, but it seems that our blog server is having some …

GK Wants to be a Squirrel Chaser

GK Wants to be a Squirrel Chaser

G.K. decided that he wanted to come on board as an official squirrel chaser.  So we, Frenchies, enlisted Uncle Carlos to help with the training.  We all decided that a gentle trot alongside the Kawasaki would be a good starting point.

We, Frenchies, were outside the other day, feeling as bleak as the weather.  The sky was gray and the world seemed the same.  However, our moods lifted when we decided to go out and explore.  It seems you just have to look on the bright side.

When we were last in Maine, I took these photos, but misplaced my camera.  Good thing that Martha found it and packed it with her things to take back to Bedford.  So, here’s another blog from Maine – better late than never!

We, Frenchies, saw Shaun and Wilmer planting succulents along the stone paths the other day and it seemed like they needed some help.  Like so many things in this world, gardening comes naturally to us and our help was greatly appreciated.

On Martha’s blog today, she posted a lot of beautiful photos of planting the giant urns on the Skylands terrace.  When the work was complete, Uncle Carlos suggested a drive to Bar Harbor so that Ryan could see some of the local flavor.  It’s always a fun town to visit.

Yesterday, we blogged about driving to Maine with Uncle Carlos and a trailer load of plants.  We dogs had a great time in the car, listening to Carlos’s favorite music, Los Melodicos, and the hours seemed to fly by.  After stretching a bit and tending to some doggy business, we had to unload the trailer …

Driving With Uncle Carlos to Maine

Last Friday, Uncle Carlos was driving a load of plants up to Skylands, our home in Maine.  We absolutely love being with him and asked Martha if we could travel with him, instead of traveling with her.  She didn’t seem to mind.

We, Frenchies, were chasing one of our squirrels the other day and it ran up a pretty styrax tree outside of the blog studio.  I have to admit that we get carried away when it comes to squirrels and I guess we did a no-no.  Have a look.

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 …
