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.

Planting Wax Begonias in the Garden

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.

Hey, everybody!  I’m back and feeling fine.  I just had a nasty bug bite, which is better now.  Yikes!  I hope everyone is staying calm and cool.  This heat is terrible!  Well, I was lounging around the other day, wondering what I could do for amusement, and then Martha and Betsy came riding by on …

Motoring in Skylands II

Posted by Francesca

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 …

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 …

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.

A Stroll Through the Cemetery in East Hampton

Over the Fourth of July weekend, we joined Martha in East Hampton and we took a little stroll through the very old cemetery in the town.  Francesca and Sharkey seemed a little scared at first until I assured them that cemeteries are perfectly safe places to be.

We, Frenchies, noticed that the door was open to the tenant house and we wanted to see what was going on.  The floors in that house are highly polished and very slippery to walk on, so one must always be very careful.

A Visit to the Donkeys on a Really Hot Day

Posted by F&S

We, Frenchies, were walking around the farm the other day when it was especially hot.  We noticed that the donkeys were not out in the paddock, so we went to visit them at the stable and ask how they were doing in all of the heat.
