Embracing Nature


I would like to say that embracing nature is a regular occurrence here at The Farmette, but seeing how my garden project is behind schedule, I might need to rethink that....




The Farmer Man of the house did take it upon himself to beautify a rather unpleasant spot of land next to one of our pastures.  


He planted wildflowers and the bees and butterflies are loving it.  



My camera and I were loving it too.

  4. My dream is to plant a wildflower meadow when we finally are able to make it to Tennessee. That red flower is absolutely stunning!

  14. What a good husband to plant wildflowers. We have a bunch of daisies in our pasture which is fun. Have a good weekend, coming up. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  15. This is such a great story. If only more people would take the simply step of planting wildflowers we could increase biodiversity measurably. I know that in The Netherlands there is a whole movement afoot to renaturalize small areas of land that have been neglected and it is working. Wildflower meadows are appearing everywhere and the landscape is beautified in the process and pollinators find a home.

  16. I recognized many of those blooms as being the same as ones we planted in the backyard of our former VA home, when my husband converted part of the backyard to a wildflower meadow😀
