Happy Mother’s Day to all our wonderful Mother’s out there!! <3 ย And Happy May!
I love seeing all the green around our farm!! The spring rain that we had yesterday and today will definitely encourage lots of new growth of flowers and weeds alike….Time to get into the “rhythm of the season”…the natural process of things in the garden, and farming. It starts with a Dream, lots of intention, action, patience, more action, more patience, Faith, a Vision, more Action with garden gloves, trowel, hoe & shovel ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Oh the joy, and reward farming brings!! I love spending time on my farm, breathing the fresh country air, and the wonderful smell after the cool spring rain!! There’s so much energy that flows into my bones & muscles when I’m outside on the farm working, or when I just relax on a bench! ๐Ÿ™‚
ย As I gaze across our fields of lavender plants, I anticipate this summers blooming beauties, their heavenly fragrance and all the wonderful folks that will visit our farm! ๐Ÿ™‚ My heart jumps at the thought of it happening again little by little…day by day our farm will transform, and 1000’s of lovely bees and birds will enjoy our organic space with us.. Serene, quiet, and peaceful ย <3
These two ladies visited yesterday, shopped in my retail cottage, then enjoyed a few moments relaxing, blowing bubbles together! Yes, blowing bubbles in the rain!!…it’s exhilarating & joyful, you should try it ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I scattered more flower seeds into my Wildflower Garden. These beauties are another lavender-colored flower, ย Papaver somniferur. I can hardly wait to see their faces dancing in the breeze. ๐Ÿ™‚ Again, I will need patience as I wait on the process, for the seeds to germinate, and the spring rain today will help in that process.
