Well, most of you who read my blog probably think that all we do around this little farm of ours is cook and eat. Not really . . . besides our teaching positions, we really spend a tremendous amount of time outdoors working on some project here or there. It’s always something, as the saying goes! As my father seems to believe, “we bought ourselves a job”! But what a labor of love it is. It doesn’t even seem like ‘work’ to us. Truthfully, more people in the USA should get off their rumps and get out and do more physical activities in the fresh air! It’s so good for us!
But other than cooking up delicious recipes, we truly love our little acreage. In the mornings and evenings when the temperatures lower back into the 70′s, we spend nearly all of our time outside with the horses, the land, and our gardens. There’s always something to do; we’re never, ever bored. So here are a few more photos of life on La Bella Vita.
A busy bee at work on the Echinacea, purple coneflower .
The rose trellis in full bloom with old-fashioned David Austin roses.
A luscious lemon yellow daylily with soft pink edges….sorry, I don’t know the name of it!
. And lastly, another superb rose-pink daylily in the flower gardens.
