Saturday on the Farm

Last week, I mentioned making Red Bud Jelly. Well, I made it! You can read all about it in my Red Bud Jelly post.

Here’s this weeks tour:

Dogwood Flower

We have several Red Bud and Dogwood Trees. I love it when they bloom at the same time. These two trees are in the back yard by the creek.

Red Bud Tree Dog Wood Tree

I found this flower growing down on the edge of the creek. I had one of the boys move it.

I moved it to this new garden in the back yard right next to the creek. The creek is between the green in the front, and the mud hill in the back. When we divided the Hostas from the front yard, I put them here and off to the right of this picture. You can see the yellow of the flower above on the left behind the Hostas. Also in this garden are some Wild Iris’s and Wild Roses.

While I was out for my picture walk, I took one of the front yard. The Bible Garden is on the end of the house, you can see a little sliver of it. There is another Front Garden on the other side of the porch. You can see the red of the Tulip in the Front Bulb Garden.

The Apple trees are blooming. So pretty!

Here’s our line of Apple Trees. My husband transplanted all these trees from up on the hill a few years ago. We got enough apples last year to make a small batch of apple cider. I froze it, and we drank it on Thanksgiving. It was sooooo good! I hope we get more apples this year for more cider. My inlaws next door (the brown house with the white shutters) have a couple of big apple trees and they share with us. Those are the ones we use for pies and applesauce. Hopefully, in a couple of years, we’ll be apple self sufficient. lol You can also see the fence of Raspberries in this picture. We actually need another fence, as lots of new vines are coming up.

    Your property is nice and open with lots of trees. It’s nice that you can move plants closer to the house for your own garden too.
    Redbud jelly, didn’t know you could make it but then redbuds are not hardy here.

  12. The Exxon Valdez oil spill was the reason for the establishment of
    the oil pollution act in 1990. They also work on draperies and will
    clean them on or off-site, taking down and rehanging the draperies, and cleaning the swags and valences.
    Unless you know what you are doing, it’s better to request the service of a professional
    restoration company.

  14. naturally like your web-site but you need to test the spelling on several of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling issues
    and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the truth
    however I will surely come again again.

  15. Nail strengtheners can be quickly applied on a daily basis to ensure nails remain strong
    and healthy. It is the choice of the celebrities; however,
    it is a little expensive over its contemporary synthetic hair form.

    When it comes to clip in extensions, a lot of women prefer it because it lasts
    longer and it can also be cheaper options than going to a salon all the time to have your hair styled according the
    occasion you would want to attend to.

  16. This modern concept is slowly receiving a grand welcome from people because in the end, having home theater set up in your home
    may prove to be economical. The output power is 4860 watts PMPO, 4 satellite speakers
    and a center speaker. You’ll need to get cables to
    connect every component of your system to the HDTV.
