Planting Hens and Chicks

We, Frenchies, saw Shaun and Wilmer planting succulents along the stone paths the other day and it seemed like they needed some help.  Like so many things in this world, gardening comes naturally to us and our help was greatly appreciated.

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 …

When PetSmart called to tell us about a new 20%-off promotion on Martha Stewart Pets good through May 22, we generously offered our services for a photo shoot, only to be told we wouldn’t be needed!

Well, yesterday we blogged about smashing the giant chocolate bunny and if that wasn’t enough, I was given another task of cleaning and organizing Martha’s desk.  Martha’s desk is right in the kitchen and since that’s where we, Frenchies, hang out, I didn’t really mind too much.  After all, we’re the ones who have to …

Well, Easter came and went and we certainly had a really great time!  We, Frenchies, love all of the festivities, with the exception of those bunny ears, of course.  Speaking of bunnies! – Martha gave us a very interesting job the other day.  Take a look at this.

Franny and I were in our blog studio, editing some recent photos, when I got up to stretch and look outside.  I was very interested to notice that after we entered the studio, something had made some changes to the door stoop outside.  This is a farm, after all, and there are critters galore!

On yesterday’s blog, we Frenchies, showed you how the chickens at the farm get fed wonderful kitchen scraps from the MSLO test kitchen and the TV kitchen.  Arshad drove them up from the city and helped us get the scraps to the chicken coop.  You may recall that there were several …
