Weeding With Guyrme

Weeding With Guyrme

Posted by Francesca

William Shakespeare wrote, “Sweet flowers are slow and weeds make haste,” and for anyone who gardens, you know exactly what that means.  Did you know that a single weed can produce as many as 250,000 seeds?  Some of you might say, “Why bother gardening?”  But that’s just a defeatist’s attitude.  We, Frenchies, like to weed …

It’s been a really hot summer and we haven’t we haven’t seen too much of our pals, the donkeys.  We look for them in their paddock, but they are rarely there.  We decided to get in the Kawasaki and track them down.

It was such a beautiful day at the farm yesterday and we, Frenchies, were outdoors enjoying all the splendor.  For amusement, we decided to start a game of hide and seek, but of course, one of us couldn’t follow the rules.

We, Frenchies, were outdoors the other day, when a very strong and sweet aroma filled the air.  We saw some commotion down by the long pergola and we went to check things out.

We, Frenchies, like to keep the gardens looking good for as long as possible.  After the spring-flowering plants have faded away, we look to robust annuals to take their places in the borders.  Wax begonias are a really good choice.

Well, the weather improved during our last trip to Skylands, our home in Maine and Martha thought it would be a good idea to go for a ride in the picnic boat.  Sharkey and I usually run the show, but since Sharkey wasn’t with us, G.K. decided that he was going to be the first …

Being in Maine Without Sharkey

The last time we went to Skylands, Martha thought it best that Sharkey remain back home at the farm.  Sharkey had a bug bite that she scratched too much and developed a rash on her neck.  Because we were concerned, G.K. and I licked her rash, but that just made things worse.  How were we …

The other day, we, Frenchies, blogged about how Princess Peony was trying to attack the canaries.  Well, shortly after shooting those photos, we went outside and found her sister, Empress Tang, involved in a bona fide bird attack!  Even though we hunt squirrels and the like, ourselves, we couldn’t help but feel sorry for the …

While we were walking around East Hampton, we went past the Town Pond, and our eyes nearly bugged out of our heads!  The color of the water was alarmingly green.  As you can imagine, we were extremely curious and struck up a conversation with the resident swan.
