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

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 …

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.

New Succulents at the Farm!

New Succulents at the Farm!

Posted by Sharkey

Francesca is healing a little problem with her eye and she needs to rest indoors.  Yesterday, I ventured outside and noticed that Shaun was digging along the stone pathway.  I saw that he was planting new succulents and I jumped in to help with the chore.  It’s very gratifying to help around the farm.

How Annoying is Vivaldi?

How Annoying is Vivaldi?

Posted by Sharkey

It was a beautiful spring day and we were all outside enjoying the warmth of the sun.  I was just zoning out, relishing the quiet solitude, when all of a sudden, Vivaldi the cat, started acting very strangely.  I just don’t get cats.  They’re either totally aloof or totally in your face.

We, Frenchies, have noticed that when Martha posts a blog about the farm, she gets a lot of really nice comments.  So, we decided to try that out on our blog.  We took a little romp around the farm to show you how things look from our perspective.  Please enjoy and let us know what …

Helping in the Peony Garden

Helping in the Peony Garden

Posted by F&S

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 …

Real Champions Like to be Groomed

Real Champions Like to be Groomed

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

I, G.K., was told that I had to go and visit a dog groomer because I was to make my acting debut in a PetSmart commercial.  I have been given baths and brush outs at home, but I had never been to a groomer before.  You might expect a little pup like me to be …

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.
