Daily Farm Photo 5/22/06: Flower Power and a Cary Update

The Driveway Is Pretty In Pink Right Now

No Lamb Report today except to say that Cary is doing very well and is up to 10 pounds. She now lets her injured leg touch the ground when she is standing still--and sometimes even puts a little weight on it. Last night she was bouncing in the barn. This morning she was packing with the bigger lambs. I am thrilled. She is, as usual, asleep at my feet as I type this.


  1. Ooooh -- what is that wildflower? I thought I remembered all my Eastern varieties but this one stumps me. It's beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi Kudzu,
    I actually have no idea what kind of flower this is. They are blooming all over the forest right now. There are dozens of types of woodland wildflowers that pop up in spring, but many of them are so delicate and have such tiny blooms that they really don't make for good photographs. I was really surprised at how well this one came out.

    I'm very bad about plant identification (unless it's a plant produces something edible, LOL), but I'm sure somebody else can enlighten us. I'll put out the official call:

    Help! What kind of flower is this?

    Thank you.

  3. Oh your picture is beautiful. It looks like bee balm to me, but I am no expert for sure. Do the hummingbirds like it?

  4. This is my first visit to your site and I have smiled and smiled at your words and images. Its simply wonderful. Thank you.

    I have a smaller version of your life with art as an add-on.

  5. I'm feeling like you should write a novel about you and Cary, a la Ring of Bright Water or the Yearling, but with no sad parts. Maybe with photographic illustrations? Of you cuddling?

  6. I got addicted to your site a couple of weeks ago, and now I can't stop. Our garden is of the small rental home variety, but your recipes have helped us put everything to good use. My roommates are eating so quickly, we make a loaf of beer bread every day now. Thanks so much for giving something to look forward to while we're at work as well.

  7. How lucky you are to have such beautiful "wild" flowers blooming all over. Its star shape and color makes it look like a cross between a passion flower and a clematis.

    I'm really happy to hear Cary is gaining weight and joining in lamb activities.

December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
