HOTTING UP

I am working on a new project! A big one. So stay tuned. If all goes well I will make an announcement tomorrow!

MONARCHS LOVE MULBERRY

I have let Mulberry trees grow wild in three areas on the farm. Yesterday evening – on my way to the vegetable garden suddenly a cloud of startled monarch butterflies flew out of the trees. At that moment I knew why I loved those…

THE LONG SHADE
