Weekend Happenings

It was a glorious weekend here on the farm.

Friday's temperatures reached 70 degrees and I was in heaven.
I worked in the yard, cleaning up debris from winter...
and began the big chore of pruning grape vines and other vining plants
on the garden fence.

The snow has finally melted, and if we have a week without rain -
as is predicted-
much of our mud should begin to dry.

It was, of course, St. Patty's Day on Sunday.

We can't have a holiday without a farm party,

and everyone got involved.
Chester was a little woozy from too much green beer!

Of course, the snacks were green as well!

And though the temperatures on Sunday never got much above 40,
we seized the day and took the dogs and the four-legged Littles for a hike.

Over to the Hundred Acre Woods we walked...
with Red trying as hard as he could to get a nibble of the grass beneath him.
At one point he just put on his brakes and refused to go, so Hubbs took charge of him.

We hiked back to the tent in the woods,

where we let the Littles take a rest and do a little grazing.

This was my view...

I love this field, our Field of Dreams, in the middle of the woods.
It's so peaceful here and a great place for spotting wildlife.

This was also Freedom weekend...
