Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop # 66
Welcome Farmgirls and Guys! Kick off your boots, grab a cold one ( whatever that is for you )
sit back and enjoy another great week of entries! This hop is in it's 66th week and going strong... We had 73 entries last week. Amazing, good stuff going on out there friends. Keep em comin'!
Any one for some homemade vanilla ice-cream? I sure could use a scoop right about now, how about you? 
This weeks FEATURED FARMGIRL is Patrice of Dogwood Lane Rambles blog. Her recipe for homemade ice-cream has me clamoring to the nearest department store to buy and ice-cream maker..She made it sound so easy and it looks out of this world scrumptious!
Have you ever tasted homemade ice-cream? I was served a heaping scoop at a graduation party recently and I was hooked... Thank you Patrice for sharing your recipe... just in time for the hottest part of the summer! 
 This farmgirl has been keeping busy in my backyard flower farm and keeping my mother in law company too.... She stays with us every other week for a few days. You don't get to be 90 without a gathering a little wisdom and she certainly has... If you're like most farmgirls, you're busy from sunup till sundown doin' your thing without a pause...My mother in law tells me to REST and like a good daughter in law I've been listening... In between trips out to the cutting gardens to weed, and apply organic pesticide to eradicate ( love that word ) the earwigs that have dibs on my dahlias beds, I pour myself something cold ( iced green tea ) sit down ( with the latest issue of  MaryJanesFarm magazine) put my feet up and read. You know what? She knows what she's talking about! It feels good to pause mid day... and sometimes I'll give in to sleepy eyes and nap... okay, maybe a little more than sometimes...:)

I've been playing with my house flowers this week too! Here's the latest bunch!

Oh, one more thing! My sweet mom painted the most beautiful painting for me for Mother's day this year but it deserves it's very own post! SOON!!! 

Time to link up and do some braggin'!

Here are the rules for the Farmgirl/guy Blog Hop!

1.) Write a post about your farmgirl lifestyle and brag a little about your farmgirl talents while your at it! Share what being a farmgirl means to you. Include lots of photos of your farm, crafts, animals, quilts, home decor projects and thrifty make overs, your backyard garden, chicken coop, recipes, studio or workshop. You get the idea!

2). Leave your entry in the Mr. Linky space to your Farmgirl Friday post.

3). Please include the Farmgirl Friday button ( or link back here ) in your post and remember to share this hop with all of your blogging friends!

Have a great week everyone and thank you so much for all you share here every Friday! Also a big thank you to all who visit Dandelion House... It's always so nice to have you here!

Your flowers are beautiful! I've been wanting to do a cutting garden, but didn't get to it this flowers are just growing willy-nilly in around all the veggies...but that's the great thing about gardening; there's always next year! happytrails!

Your blooms are lovely! My grandparents always made home made ice cream when we were kids. It was more of a frozen custard. We were given an ice cream maker a couple of years ago by hubs sister and brother in law when they came for a visit. Hubs has enjoyed making ice cream at least once of twice a summer since. Usually when we have everyone here for a visit.
