YAY it's May time to Plant and Paint

Finally the last snow melted. time to get lots done.

Shop News: lots of new paper and fabric trims and garlands available.
200 fabric eggs (balls) for bowl fillers or add to any container to make pin cushions.
some more fun fabric strip garlands... a yard long and 18" long.
I still have some of the great old windows too.

Farm News: the lavender fields are tilled up... gotta clean up the rows for the 300' mounds, get the ground cover down, then hopefully i have the drip line also set up by next week.
You can see that Zeru is learning to use the excavator to help dig the trenches for the water hydrants  to the lavender fields, the chickens and ducks, and a third to our vegetable / fruit garden.
also we just got our 16 baby turkeys ... yes day old turkeys, they look like baby chickens , but soon will be big turk
Lots of trims, and paper garlands sold by the yard

Egg cartons and stuffed fabric eggs

  1. Hi Miz Carmen,
    Happy Mothers Day!!!!
    Love the fabric eggs!
    Lots of progress on your lavender farm, take lots of photos! Zeru must be having a ball running the excavator. What a big help he will be. A project this big makes my little garden look so easy. We will finish the cotton rows today, and the tomatoes, okra, and green beans should be in as well. Then its all up to the weather.
    I rushed to the computer to see the weather in Co. ,,,, I was relieved to see the tornados were not in your yard. Perhaps you should dig a storm shelter! No, I'm serious. A good project for Zeru.

    And now turkeys,,, umm,umm,ummm.
    Never a dull moment!
    Love yall!
