So I thought I'd share a bit o'sunshine and some pictures from our trip to Maine in August
Hubby's cousin's wife's organic garden. These are echinacea (or purple coneflowers) she grows.
These flowers cross the entire garden and are so lovely!
This is a view of only 1/2 of her garden. Right behind me is the echinacea row. She gets paid for providing organic veggies to a senior citizens home nearby. She also has a little farm stand in the front of her house to sell whatever doesn't get delivered or sold at the local farmers marker. Perfect way to spend the summer as she is a teacher during the school year. One day..I'll try this...
College man is batting away the mosquitos, the girl is trying to like a donkey.
Here are the other 2. Don't know their names though.
As you can see, she has absolutely no interest in going inside the barn to feed the donkeys.
They also have chickens and sell the eggs.
She's made nice beds for them to lay eggs in, but somehow they enjoy hanging out in the rafters. I don't think I'd step foot inside without a hat on though! ;)
Chickens on the road. These are such pretty chickens too, all different kinds. Hubby wants chickens when we retire. I told him for eggs only. I don't think I could raise them, then...well..you know... see them on my table later.
Finally caught one of the many pretty butterflies that were all around these flowers.
Have a great Thursday!
