Driving With Uncle Carlos to Maine

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

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.

Peonies and Rain Don't Mix

Peonies and Rain Don't Mix

Posted by F&S

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!

For the Love of Allium

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

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 …

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

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.

On Martha’s blog today, she shares photos taken at Camp Lejeune, in North Carolina, when she met up with First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden and taped a very special Mother’s Day tribute, which will air on Sunday night on Hallmark Channel.  You may already know this but, Rock, who drives for Martha, …

Cleaning Martha's Desk

Cleaning Martha's Desk

Posted by Sharkey

Well, yesterday we blogged about smashing the giant chocolate bunny and if that wasn’t enough, I was given another task of cleaning and organizing Martha’s desk.  Martha’s desk is right in the kitchen and since that’s where we, Frenchies, hang out, I didn’t really mind too much.  After all, we’re the ones who have to …
