G.K. Stops to Smell the Peonies

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 …

Where Have all the Donkeys Gone?

Where Have all the Donkeys Gone?

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

The other day, I went to find my friends, the donkeys.  I like playing ball with Clive, Rufus, and Billy but they were not outside in their paddock.  After searching for a bit, I did locate them in the stable.  Who knew you had to make an appointment to play?

On Wednesday, I told you all about the big production that Sharkey, G.K., and I were asked to be part of in New York City.  We pooches will be the stars of our very own webisodes, which you must be certain not to miss, but you’ll be hearing more about that sometime soon.  Anyway, here …

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 …

What's Going on in the Tomato Patch?

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I trotted down to the vegetable garden the other day to see how things were growing. The weather has been getting milder and I suppose the danger of frost has passed. We found Shaun and Wilmer out there planting all the tomatoes they grew from seed and of course, Franny and …

Sharkey Explores at Dusk

On a recent afternoon, I found myself alone since Francesca and G.K. were busy having a nap.  I just didn’t feel like joining them, so I went outside and hopped on a Kawasaki for a little spin around the farm.  There are always new and wonderful things to see.

Tree Peonies Galore But Not a Single One to Pick!

Tree Peonies Galore But Not a Single One to Pick!

Posted by Sharkey

Martha grows many, many peonies at the farm.  There is an enormous garden of herbaceous peonies and a long bed of exotic tree peonies.  The fragrance of these flowers is intoxicating and I wanted to pick a lovely bouquet to enjoy in the house.  Franny became very bossy when I suggested this and we had …

Pulling Weeds with the Crew

Pulling Weeds with the Crew

Posted by Francesca

The other morning when we woke up, a gentle rain was falling.  I was getting a little stir crazy and told Sharkey to find our rain slickers so that we could go outdoors.  We trotted down to where the lilies grow and we found the crew wearing rain slickers, too.  They were busy weeding and …

G.K. Learns About Barn Swallows

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

As the new puppy on the farm, there is really a lot for me to learn about.  Just the other day, I was walking past the carport when this bird came swooping down at me.  I wanted to know what kind of bird it was, so I went to find my sisters, Franny and Sharkey.  …

A Painterly Sky Over Bedford

A Painterly Sky Over Bedford

Posted by Sharkey

Francesca and I were sitting on the front porch the other day when all of a sudden, the sky changed from bright and sunny to dark and ominous.  It was quite an amazing thing to see as the clouds rolled over the farm.  Come and have a look.  It might inspire you to grab some …
