Summer Solstice

As we head into Summer bright skies, warm weather and long summer nights. It is nice to take the time to celebrate with Summer Solstice. The gardens are amazing they have quietly went about their business producing, growing into such a beautiful moment.
The lavender is incredible this year it is so rich and full.
We have changed the garden up so much  a new green house it is twenty feet by ten feet perfect for lavender and herbs. The lavender house has been painted a new fun colour. A little patio has been added the leaf fountain has been changed it is looking quite nice.

We are well into spring Flowering fruit trees have moved and it is exciting we are producing little tiny fruits. Last year there was none.

Lilacs have come and gone. We are seeing lavender starting to bud up. I am sure it will be a beautiful season if not a little earlier than usual.

We have been blessed with rainbows, a kind spring and this long weekend rain.

 We are greening up. It is nice to see everything awake from winter. This winter was kind to us sometimes after winter and you see the devastation in the gardens it can make you cry. We are gearing up for a busy summer.

 Our front yard has gone through many changes. I love this look it reminds me of England. I have so many fond memories of Europe.

We have been so crazy busy it has been non stop-straight ahead. I am really looking forward to  things settling down.
We attended a Spring Market last weekend it was so nice to meet so many people. To share a bit of the farm and make new contacts. All of these beautiful bundles found new homes.

The lavender house is bursting with good things and all the lavender is shaping up quite nicely.

 This is another of our favorites violets the fragrance is amazing .

Welcome to all our new friends.
This page is where I share my true love for my gardens.
I am truly blessed to live on this farm with my family hard work yes, never ending work yes but man oh man there is nothing better than knowing you put a full days work in and it is home.
Truth is sometimes I forget and all I see is work and I have to make myself stop and appreciate (I actually really like to work and see the progress)
. We are a farm first then the gardens. There is enough... produce grown to last us the winter. We have fun, we have competitions, we argue about water, we can not count our sheep if our lives depended on it, our goats are always trying to get out, we have Molly the milk ,we have wildlife troubles, we have nice neighbors, we have lavender such beautiful lavender, ponds
A whole lot of creativity ~ oh the creativity and Inspiration might be just me the rest of the family just goes along.

Thank you for sharing in my dream

 Spring time cleaning in February is just plain crazy. This makes me very worried what kind of summer we will be having. Last summer was so intense with heat, fire threats and low water in our Province.

Cleaning and raking we end up with an amazing amount of pine needles and pine cones and all of this needs cleaning in the Spring every year.

 Bundles of lavender heading out one thing is lavender does keep it's self true to colour.

Let me tell you a story. A very good Saturday morning. Amazing, crazy weather mild way too mild weather here for February. Yesterday our grandson was visiting so we were on grand adventures out in the garden and out and about the farm. For me I was just wanting to get down and work I love to work outside but it was a grandson day so it was all about fun. Well the air was perfect right in the garden was pure magic, pure hope and peace every little corner showed promise. I kneeled in the garden and smelled the earth it was so rich of fresh, clean soil with a hint of medicinal air. My garden has a scent that can hit you and just about bring you to your knees with gratitude. The trees carry their own magic then add the lavender, mint and dampness it truly is indescribable. My wish for all of you today is to find this ~ find this peace, hope and promise in the earth I guarantee you will not be disappointed.  (The pictures are from last summer)

A start to a new year 2015 was a good year a lot accomplished here on the farm.
A trend I hope to continue into 2016. I will figure out what worked, what didn't, how to simplify.

 Over the next few months my goal is to debud all this lavender not a great task as you can see it is not bundled ahh the rubber bands were not a good quality and they all broke. So I am bringing into the house letting it dry up as it picks up moisture be stored outside. Then getting down to debud and man do I have a lot of to do.

 Here our my beautiful birch 18 inch candle holders. We made quite a few so it helped keep things nice and cozy feeling while we went for a few days into -21.
