From our Gentlemen's Farm in bucolic Bucks County, PA to a home nestled in the Piney Woods of The Lone Star State . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . This is our journey and these are our musings as we homeschool, play and pray our way through a wonderful life.

Springtime News About Town

Flowers are blooming . . . . We went to a fascinating workshop on Biblical Herbs and then stayed and played! 

The sun was shining so brightly that even with the gusts of strong breezes we could feel that scorching Texas heat on our skin. Thank goodness for our new glasses that magically turn into sunglasses! We still found ourselves squinting in the bright sunshine though!

Our wildflower season was short and sweet because we have had so little rain. :-(  
Usually we have weeks of colorful fields and pastures.

The colors faded much too quickly.
And, the  Black Eyed Susans never even visited this year!

The Bluebonnets were here and gone in the blink of an eye! 

But we did manage to get a "first" Bluebonnet picture!  That is a very important rite of passage through the years in The Lone Star State.

Art class hit the streets and the outcome was spectacular! I especially like the chalk-coated knees. :-)
This student did a fabulous job with depth and color, don't you think?
The vegetable garden is looking good!
We have already enjoyed a few freshly picked tomatoes.

One of our older neighbors stopped by today. She was out for her daily constitutional and made a beeline for me when she saw me working in the garden. She wanted me to know that she has been watching our tomato plants . . . . she told me that she didn't want me to think she was a stalker!
