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?

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 …

Sun Queens

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.

How Much is That Kitty in the Window?

Empress Tang came to see us in the kitchen the other day and she started snooping around.  You know how cats like tight little spaces?  Well, Tang certainly found one.  Sharkey and I are always looking for photo ops, so we grabbed the camera and took these shots.

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 …

Check Out What's Growing in the Cold House

Posted by Sharkey

In our ever-present quest for adventure, Franny and I wandered over to the cold house, where vegetables are planted right in the very fertile ground.  It’s always interesting to see what is growing there and sometimes I wish that I could actually eat the stuff.  However, I am told that people are people and dogs …

Exploring the Hoop House

Exploring the Hoop House

Posted by F&S

We, Frenchies, noticed that the hoop house’s door was open the other day, so we decided to go in and have a look.  Voila!  That’s where all the beautiful tropical plants that grace the sunken garden have been stored for the cold months of winter.  We love those tropical specimens and we can’t wait for …

Swinging is a Blast!

Swinging is a Blast!

Posted by Sharkey

We were out and about with Uncle Carlos the other day when we came upon a playground, which had swings for kids.  Franny and I started wondering, why should kids have all the fun?  Why not dogs, too?  It turns out that swinging is a blast and Franny even started reciting poetry.  I think I’ll …
