last daffodil and Joy

I do want to share the photo of this amazing woman, Joy. I cannot explain the feeling we all get, when we round the corner on our way home from somewhere, and all of her flowers come in sight. We watch for them blooming every spring and when they start we all tell each other, as if the people in the same car can't see it!! What a generous effort, and how worth it. It lifts everyone, and we all "own that same feeling", whether we have planted anything in our lives.

more daffodil

What a fitting name for someone who has shared so much with the neighborhood.

Daffodil Dayz 2009

This is the beautiful contribution, to the world, of our neighbor, Joy Zamoiski. Can't believe we almost missed it. The num

ber of bulbs is incredible, they planted 100,000. last year, not counting any that had been planted before. I will post more views.

How fresh is that?

The eggs this morning are beautiful and fresh from the coop.
Our hens scatter around the property all day and then are tucked in at night, to stay safe from predators. Dean designed the coop to be easy to move, so they don't wear out any area with their scratching. Right now they are situated at the top of the sheep hill and I think their view is more pretty than the one from our house. We have 15 little lambs hopping around in the winter pen, just waiting for more warm weather to get the grass really growing. That is what is happening here on the farm, the cottage has many openings for reservations so give us all call, if you like your breakfast fresh.
