Squirrel in the Styrax Tree

Posted by F&S

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.

New Plants for the Walkways

On a recent jaunt around the farm, Sharkey and I noticed many empty spaces along the stone paths where succulent plants once grew.  Granted, some of these paths are new, and need to be landscaped.  But, for the established paths, it’s far better to have succulents growing than weeds.

The other day, between raindrops, we Frenchies picked some amazing tree peonies to decorate the house.  We thought we would go back to the border to gather some more, but there’s one big problem – it’s been raining and oh, so dreary!

We, Frenchies, were wandering around the farm the other day, when we saw Betsy leading Ramon out to a paddock.  Something looked different about that Friesian so we went to find out what it could be.
