The Family’s Farm

I have always dreamed of having a farm, so I love visiting them.

I envy the space and the history that goes along with a family farm.

Jimmy’s family has been on this farm for generations.

Joyce and Jimmy now grow hay and daylilies and keep a number of animals.

I love visiting anytime, but June is the most beautiful month for daylilies.

They have over 300 varieties. They no longer sell them. They are trying to get their numbers down to a manageable amount.

If you have daylilies, you know that many need dividing to keep blooming.  I can’t imagine the work involved in keeping this many.

I walked through rainbows of color last week.   Here are just a few of the flowers.

Daring Deception

I must include some of the animals. Their horses were running too fast for photos because they were being chased by Tank, the donkey who likes to bite their backsides.

I did get to pet the goats.

I love chicken noises.  These are young ones.

This little rooster was trying to crow.  No noise came out. It was so cute!

FLOWER wants a FARM!

  1. Quel magnifique domaine. J’aime aussi les fermes et celle-ci est superbement fleurie avec de beaux animaux, ce qui demande beaucoup de travail. Merci pour ce très beau partage.
    Mes amitiés.
