G.K. Stops to Smell the Peonies

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

As you know, Martha likes to grow all kinds of flowers and she is especially fond of her peony bed.  In fact, I am told that she hosts a peony party every spring just to show them off.  I’ve been trying to learn about everything growing on the farm so I went to study the …

Plumbing With Sharkey

Martha is always encouraging us, Frenchies, to be curious, to experiment, and to try new things.  If you are a regular reader of this blog, I think you will agree that Francesca and I really know how to get things done.  Therefore, it should come as no surprise to you that plumbing has been added …

The Big Shoot - Day One

Sharkey, G.K., and I were cast to star in our very own webisodes.  We can’t tell you too much about them, but we were chauffeured into New York City to the Starrett Lehigh building, where this all happened.  I have to say that being a celebrity has its perks, but, like Martha says, it is …

As you may know, Martha is traveling in a far away country called Malaysia.  While she is away, we decided to snoop a little and see what Martha keeps in her kitchen drawers and cabinets.  Fascinating!  We wanted to surprise her as well and measured the  inside of the drawers so that we could have …

Martha got up really early the other morning and went outside to look around and to take some photos.  Of course, Francesca, G.K. and I went outside with her.  It was an especially gorgeous sunrise and being from French descent, I was reminded of a tidbit from French history.

It finally stopped raining and we, Frenchies, went outside to play.  Not too far from the house is where Martha’s extraordinary peony garden is located.  If you love peonies, this is the place to be!  Peony flowers are very heavy and they tend to flop over, which is why they need to be supported.  We …

Now that spring has finally arrived, it’s so much fun being outdoors.  Martha has made certain that the farm is a beautiful place to meander around.  When all the flowers start to bloom, it’s just breathtaking!  We, Frenchies, really love the daffodil border.  Come and see what we picked for Martha the other day.

How to Move a Fire Pit

Posted by F&S

Last week, Martha went antiquing and found a gigantic metal vat and she thought it would be great to use as an outdoor fire pit.  It was too big for her to take, so she sent Uncle Carlos with the pickup and, of course, he took us along for the ride.  It wasn’t such an …

The Chicken Show

Posted by Sharkey

Franny was still taking a nap when I got up from mine and felt like reading.  I noticed a stack of new books in the kitchen.  Much to my surprise, they were all about chickens and other types of poultry.  These books were quite eye opening and I have a whole new appreciation for these …

Sharkey and I were very surprised the other day when we found so much food in the kitchen.  There were bowls of this and trays of that and we could not imagine what it was all to be used for.  Much to our surprise, little G.K., who is not so little anymore, informed us that …
