FLOWERS!!!and cute bee!, Is that a native bee?
Big bee! The flowers look wonderful!
Sedum Autumn Joy made me think of Almond Joy. And now I'm craving it...*shakes head**laughs*
Wow, I loved your "about me." I'm almost in tears. I've moved to NYC, been here about a year, and you story about the transition/upheaval you made is inspirational. I don't think I have the courage to do that just yet, but I hope to keep reading your blog frequently and who knows, maybe it will happen some day. I'm originally from California..what area did you leave behind?
Hi Clare,Oh boy. I just finished all that hornet research. Now I get to look up bees? I call these bumblebees. There are more in the garden this year than I've ever seen. I love it. But I didn't love the one that stung me on the leg yesterday while I was in the house sitting at the computer! Being attacked outside is one thing, but in the house, too!?Hi Joe,Thanks. They are pretty big. And they are going crazy for the sedum. It is a new plant for me this year, and the bees are thrilled. I counted six on it this morning. I love it, too. The flowers are unlike anything else I've seen.Hi Cherrybegonia,Okaaaay. . . : )Hi Mona,Welcome to the farm! Thanks for your kind words and taking the time to write. I look forward to hearing from you again.Re California: I grew up in Marin County, went to school in Berkeley for a bit, and then migrated north to various parts of Sonoma County before moving to Missouri. P.S. Cute profile photo! : )
gorgeous. so simple and yet it captures that beautiful transitional summer to fall stage. the light... everything.
Hi Susan,just discovered your blog and I absolutely love the pictures you post and the whole concept of living on a farm! Your story is wonderful and I admire your decision to move to a farm, it certainly takes a lot of courage to just "pack it in".keep on writing, I shall visit again :)-Anita
