In Search of Color on a Cloudy Day

Posted by F&S

We, Frenchies, were outside the other day, feeling as bleak as the weather.  The sky was gray and the world seemed the same.  However, our moods lifted when we decided to go out and explore.  It seems you just have to look on the bright side.

Hunting For Wild Mushrooms in Maine

When we were last in Maine, I took these photos, but misplaced my camera.  Good thing that Martha found it and packed it with her things to take back to Bedford.  So, here’s another blog from Maine – better late than never!

Exploring Bar Harbor

Exploring Bar Harbor

On Martha’s blog today, she posted a lot of beautiful photos of planting the giant urns on the Skylands terrace.  When the work was complete, Uncle Carlos suggested a drive to Bar Harbor so that Ryan could see some of the local flavor.  It’s always a fun town to visit.

Yesterday, we blogged about driving to Maine with Uncle Carlos and a trailer load of plants.  We dogs had a great time in the car, listening to Carlos’s favorite music, Los Melodicos, and the hours seemed to fly by.  After stretching a bit and tending to some doggy business, we had to unload the trailer …

The other day, between raindrops, we Frenchies picked some amazing tree peonies to decorate the house.  We thought we would go back to the border to gather some more, but there’s one big problem – it’s been raining and oh, so dreary!

As Martha wrote on her blog today, we’ve been getting much too much rain and we, dogs, couldn’t get outside too much to explore.  Many things are blooming, or beginning to bloom in the garden, including all the allium, and we finally got to enjoy their beauty.

We, Frenchies, were wandering around the farm the other day, when we saw Betsy leading Ramon out to a paddock.  Something looked different about that Friesian so we went to find out what it could be.

Sharkey and I were driving around in the Kawasaki recently in search of some beauty in the woods.  Sharkey was uncertain which road to take so we stopped and asked for directions and we finally found what we were looking for.

Shedding Our Winter Coats

Shedding Our Winter Coats

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I were outside the other day, when she suddenly realized that Sasa, the horse, was no longer wearing his warm winter coat.  That caused her to go into a silly tirade about how we are no longer wearing our fashionable cold weather wardrobe and she was actually lamenting that fact!  Honestly, Sharkey can …

Showing G.K. Some Flowers

We, Frenchies are so very happy that spring has finally arrived.  Pretty flowers are beginning to bloom all over the farm.  We decided to take G.K. around and show him some of our favorite areas and it turns out that he has a real appreciation for flowers.
