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 …

Maintaining a Stone Wall

Maintaining a Stone Wall

Posted by Sharkey

The weather was so beautiful yesterday and a lot of our household clan wandered outdoors to enjoy the sunshine.  It seems that the wall around Martha’s patio is a favorite spot to congregate and like Martha, I want to be sure that the wall will be around for many, many years.

We, Frenchies, Help Hang the Screens

Now that spring has arrived, the grounds crew has been very busy with all of the spring chores.  One major job is taking down the storm windows and replacing them with the screens.  Because Franny and I are never concerned about getting our paws dirty, we are always ready to chip in and help.  No …

G.K. Takes a Look Around the Farm

After days of rain, it finally feels like spring has arrived.  At least, that’s what everyone tells me.  You see, this is my very first spring and I’ve got to say that so far, I love it!  I came to live at the farm during winter, when things looked very different.  I really enjoy being …

Hey Donkeys!  It's Spring!

Hey Donkeys! It's Spring!

Spring is in the air and that makes me so happy.  I decided to trot around the farm and tell all of my friends the good news, thinking that everyone would be as enthusiastic as I am.  Little did I know that the donkeys have their own opinions about warm weather.

With the arrival of spring, there are so many chores to do around the farm.  You probably know by now that Martha likes to blanket the farm with burlap to protect things from the wind and cold.  Sharkey and I like to help out by removing the burlap from the boxwood hedges.  Come and see …

Happy Spring!

Happy Spring!

As you know, we Frenchies, really love our couture. However, nothing beats going outdoors with just our birthday suits and feeling that warm sun on our furry backs. Quite suddenly, the cold temperatures disappeared and we were blessed with a stretch of really pleasantly warm and sunny days. And also quite suddenly, …

Some Signs of Spring

Sharkey and I put our yellow coats on the other day and went outside to explore.  We’ve been noticing how the days seem to be getting longer and that can only mean that spring is on its way.  We trotted around the farm to see if we could find evidence of this and we weren’t …

G.K. Explores in the Snow

G.K. Explores in the Snow

Posted by Francesca

I suppose that when you are a puppy, there are many things to get excited about.  Sharkey and I keep forgetting that for G.K., the world is a totally new place and that things, like snow, are something of a phenomena.  It’s amusing to see his enthusiasm.  It’s kind of infectious, actually, and I have …

Windy and Rainy

Windy and Rainy

Posted by Sharkey

The other day was really windy and rainy. As much as we animals wanted to go outside and play, the weather made that rather impossible. Our new brother, Ghenghis Khan (G.K. for short), wanted to go outside very badly, and I had to give him all the reasons why it would be a …
