Maine in autumn

Maine in autumn

Posted by Sharkey

Silly me!  I just found these photos taken in early October, during the last time we went to Maine with Martha and her guests.  I must have misplaced the memory card.  We Frenchies take so many photos for our blog and I guess, once in a while, things can slip through a crack.  ‘Tsk-tsk,’ as …

A trip to Mariani Gardens

A trip to Mariani Gardens

Posted by Francesca

On Martha’s blog today, she is giving her blog readers a tour of a great nursery called Mariani Gardens,  located in Armonk, New York. When she visits there, we often accompany her. We love it because it’s so colorful and there’s so much great stuff to see.

The season five premiere of MARTHA

The season five premiere of MARTHA

Posted by Sharkey

Last Monday was so exciting because we made our big appearance on the first day of the fifth season of Martha’s TV show. But, we’re wondering why they keep calling the show MARTHA, when it really should be called MARTHA with Francesca and Sharkey. Perhaps it’s time for a new negotiation.

A new Kawasaki!

The last time we were at Skylands, there were so many people because Martha was busy shooting a television segment.  Our friends at Kawasaki Corporation and Bangor Motor Sports thought it would be nice to loan us a new Kawasaki Mule to drive around the property while the TV crew was there.  You know how …

This past weekend, Martha took us back to Skylands, in Maine.  Because of the approaching Hurricane Bill, the weather was a bit rough for a couple of days.  However, that never stops us from going out and exploring nature and we had a great time at the Seal Harbor beach.

When we were traveling with Martha on the North Fork of Long Island, we stopped at one of her favorite plant growers, Beds & Borders. We Frenchies always like to say hello to the crew there and while we were visiting, something was slinking around. We, of course, charged over to have a …

Pondering the beauty of Skylands

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I really love to visit Skylands in Maine. Last weekend, we went there with Martha and we did so much walking. Fortunately, there are many comfortable places to sit and rest and we did plenty of that, too.

Buckets of flowers in Maine

Posted by Francesca

When we were at Skylands in Maine recently, we were so surprised to look out the front door and find buckets and buckets of beautiful flowers. You know how much we Frenchies love flowers, so naturally, we pushed open the screen door to have a little look.

Frenchie Farmer Fantasy

Posted by Sharkey

If you’ve been reading Martha’s blog, you know that she went exploring for plants on the North Fork of Long Island in New York State. Of course, we went along for the ride, in search of adventure. There are lots of farm stands out in the country and we spotted one that looked …

An afternoon of dogs, dogs, and more dogs!

Posted by Francesca

Being part of Martha’s road trip was so much fun for Sharkey and me and as much as we like car rides, it was great to finally get to Skylands and stretch our legs. One day while we were there, Martha took us to a field with a big tent. Beneath it there …
