It is snowing outside how crazy is that for the end of April. We have had terrible wind - such a crazy weather system we are having this Spring. Yesterday I was ready to give up I wanted to have a tantrum there is so much work on a farm and that is okay but to have to redo the work one just did gets a little old. The wind is wreaking all my ground cover for the lavender I have so much money invested and so much time. I wonder when it is enough? sigh ...
Should I just keep doing this or is this enough add no more just do with what I have if it does not work don't add more?
I guess it is just from being burnt out.
I have to do something heavy decisions on the Lavender gardens what it is I don't know yet.

It is always a good idea to fix a roof when you are on the ground as soon as you get up three steps of the ladder reality sets in and then you are on the actual roof get have to get your roof legs going and then all hell breaks loose when you have to get off the roof onto that little narrow ladder.
 Sigh I will never get a job a roofer J
Our weather to say the least has been down right horrible. We need a few days of sunshine after all the moisture and I am sure it will only bring the weeds up.
We have new chicks on the farm
sizzles
frizzles
Americaunas
silkie
Belgian D'Uccles
Lavender Orpington
Bantam Cochins
Orpingtons
 
I might have a few other breeds but I can not remember right now.
Not too many just a couple of each. Should be fun to watch them grow up.
Our peacocks are so happy the new ones seem to be settled more and my four others are quite pleased with themselves.
I have already harvested herbs out of the garden thyme, chives, sage and lemon balm. The mini roses I planted have all returned after winter so that is quite exciting.
We have set up a play area for Cash we have most of it done now. My niece gave us a swing set for him, so Sally we do not have to take Koa's. We are still waiting on gravel but that might be awhile. Our grandson is still pretty little so he does not need too much.

The day started out chilly then settled now we are getting wind. Mother nature does not know what she wants.
We have the fence wire up around our toy area now, we have a few fence posts, swing set posts and a gate to add. Then it should be safer for Cash.
I stained the posts red to match Cash's play house and wagon. I would like to get some fresh gravel for the ground and I would like to find some nice fresh sand also.
It is kind of funny we are always fencing to keep some animal out of somewhere-the life farming. The green house is full of planted seeds and a lot of new lavender plants. I sure hope they actually grow.
Miss Molly the lavender cow

One of Molly's babies she has two.

 
Yesterday I had Molly the milk cow in the stall and I tied her. She was okay I fed her and left her for about an hour. This morning I fed her in her stall and she went straight to it. And, I just went out to the barn and I pet her and talked real quiet and she seemed a lot more settled.

Good day animals are doing well.

Sheep are let into the bigger pen another week or so we might let them out in the pasture.

I worry about cougars, coyotes and dogs for those little lambs.

Yesterday I fed Molly the milk cow in the barn she was more settled and she brought her calves with her.

Now to only get to milk her I need a farmer to come help me.

I want to make butter, ice cream, and yogurt plus feed my little pigs.

We are off to visit Tanisha today with our other girls and Grandson. Ahh as I write this did you know it is snowing outside...down right depressing.

 


Hope your day is awesome.

Easter Weekend was lovely.
The weather was nice our kids were home.
 

 


You know it is no secret I love spring today is no different fresh, clean from the nice gentle rain we had yesterday.
 All around us the earth is waking up from its long winter nap.
 Do you feel more at peace while outside?
Do you feel a connection to the trees, rivers, sky and mountains?

 
I find my worries go away whole I weed the garden; I get excited when I see the herbs popping up.
I can’t even begin to explain the happiness I get when I see a garden full of roses.
 The gardens full of lavender it gives me a sense of love, hope, happiness and romance.
So much is offered through the gardens, so much is offered to us if we want to accept it.
This spring let the gardens heal you if you need it, calm you if you need it, let the gardens love you and accept you.
 Feel the difference, accept the difference.
 
I challenge you to open yourself up to nature.
