Our front garden!
Fledgling woodpecker, sweet little guy.
St. John's Wort, picked from the wild and drying before being made into tincture.
Swimming in the lake!
Matilda loves being brushed :)
One of the boys' favourite daily activities; playing with the quails!
Fire Quail to the rescue!
We had a huge load of wood delivered; enough for a couple winters' worth of firewood.
We also have lots of hay in the barn.
Firewood and hay - with those two things stacked and ready, we can relax a little.
An old bucket that we found buried deep in the pasture, and a poppy :)
The flower gardens make me SO happy :)
The main vegetable garden, plus my wonderful sheep :)
My old bike that I rode through the city streets during my art school years.
Drying sage, bee balm and calendula flowers on the drying rack.
At their request, I sewed each of the boys a medicine bag, and we took a long walk and collected nature things to help them be healers.
The summer has been very busy as we continue to build - and tend the gardens, care for the animals and such. In less than two weeks, I will be participating in the local artists' studio tour! I am working on some new artwork that I can share and sell. It has been very fun to gear for a studio tour (my first!). I hope it will be a wonderful experience :)
