Welcome to Farmgirl Friday blog hop # 29 ! How are things going on your homesteads this week? Are you having beautiful Indian Summer weather or a mix? We've had some rain mixed with warm, sunny days too. The leaves are beginning to turn along the southern shores of New England and you can bet I'll be out with my camera snapping away so I can share some of our world famous fall beauty with my blogging friends! Can you believe my nasturtiums are still climbing up the side of the Little Red Hen House? I haven't put my gardens to bed ( completely) for the winter yet, but I have spread a light layer of good, aged compost straight out of the chicken run on to some of my newer plantings. I continue to give shrubs a long, deep drink of water once a week which I will keep up until the first frost.
The girls have been enjoying the warm days of Indian Summer too! I happened to catch them all in the " tub " one day basking in the dirt! Aren't they sweet?
I've also been busy inside puttering getting our nest ready for cooler, darker days ahead. We've added some new lighting in our hallways and a few of our rooms to keep our spirits high and our home bright. I've also been putting the finishing touches on our son's bedroom make- over and our recent kitchen remodel! I love the feeling of comfort that comes with settling in and preparing for the next season don't you? Stay tuned for more posts from " inside Dandelion House!
This might be the season for putting our gardens to bed, but I'm planting some new dream seeds for next year and I'm excited to share them with you soon!
The stone man only has a few more slab pieces to lay down before he can " call it good" on the patio he's been building from re-claimed granite. He's been working so hard and for his first one, I think it's quite impressive... Shhhh, don't let him hear that, I'll never hear the end of it ! Wink Wink...
