Spring Projects

It has been so long since I have had a chance to post what I am doing. As of late, the creativity has been on hold. I have been spending most of my days at the construction site, and the rest of them catching up on household and farm chores. The light at the end of the tunnel is there, though, and I can see the future when chores are manageable, the moving is over, and my sewing room is decorated and open for business once again. For now, though I am concentrating on gardening and farm projects. Of particular interest is the new henhouse that I have just gotten ready. I have ordered 25 hens...an ornamental layer grouping. These should be wonderful showy chickens with colorful plumage and some with top hats and leg feathers. Their eggs will be varied. Here are a few of the girls...


I have ordered a Golden Campine rooster . He will look like this on arrival....

And will grow up to look like this..... Getting beehives ready for occupancy has also been a major project this spring. I am painting 5 new garden hives and also enough hive boxes and supers to move my old "gals" into five more freshly painted hives. I have 4 more bee seminars to attend throughout the Spring also.

What time I have leftover I spend deep within my imagination...decorating the log home that is soon to be completed. At that point I will resume daily posting on this blog inviting you to a big open house reveal. What fun I will have with that! Until then....have a wonderful Spring and please visit my farm blog as that is where the action will be for now.
