Oh my goodness...

It's already FRIDAY?? Time does get away when you're having fun, doesn't it?? You can check out my food blog HERE to see what I've been up to in the FOOD department, which covers most areas of my life....Food-Cooking...gotta love it!

My flowers are looking plum gorgeous, thanks to my sweet son who fertilized them for me a few weeks ago. Now it is paying off with big, beautiful blue, and lavender blooms!

I took this pic in the rain, and it's a little off-center, but I had to tip-toe to reach it and was holding the camera way out almost over my head...They're big! Okay, I'm short, so maybe they're not "that" tall....LOL Whatever!
Anyway....They're prettier than they have been in years!

So many things going on here on Honeysuckle Farm! Most of it deals with food, gardening, putting up, etc. Some like picking blackberries, and weeding the garden and flowers is fun too! I picked the last of the dewberries yesterday....I hated to see them gone!
And the chickens are such a delight! We still have 11 biddies! The old red fox hasn't been back....Keeping my fingers crossed it stays away!
Did I mention we also have 9 puppies? They are getting so CUTE!! They're about 6 weeks old...The mama is a Collie and the daddy is a Blue Heeler (sp?) They're spotted and have the cutest little pointed ears. We'll be getting shots and everything soon and want to find homes for all of them but three, that are already spoken for.
We've been having rain for a few days now, so I haven't been able to hang out any clohes...And it's starting to pour down again now...Great for the garden and flowers, not so good for my temperament though...hmmm
Well, my coffee/computer break is about up, so I need to get back to work with supper, pickles, zucchini, yellow squash (more than I can handle almost!) etc. in the kitchen! Wheeww! I think all of this hard work has made me lose about 4-5 pounds...Busy-busy!
