I'm ready for a fire! Wednesday night and Thursday night the temperatures dipped into the high 30s Fahrenheit. And it is never that cold this early. We often don't get a frost until late October.

Ah, Herdwick sheep. Let's hear it for Beatrix Potter.

The event never seems to have a problem finding someone to demonstrate dogs herding sheep so they are out there. But it is not something you se ...

It wasn't a trial, Mistress Rose, just demonstrations a couple of times each day so the punters can watch and be entertained. Once again, or should I say, as always, here's a link to the entry on my w ...

Ty Gwyn, are the marriage mart ladies superseded over the horse image or does it appear as a banner? If the first situation there's not much to do, if the latter it could perhaps be cut away with a ph ...

Do you ever know me to go anywhere without the camera, Ty Gwyn? It rained today so I could not get out into the garden. Instead I created an entry for the plowing match.

Today is the third, concluding day of the Labor Day weekend which, unofficially, marks the end of summer. It's raining today. But that is - sort of - O.K. Why? Because Saturday was the plowing match a ...

Soup tastes nice but probably is no where near recipe. Why? Recipe calls for 2 pounds of squash blossoms and the 40 that I picked weighed in at 3.2 ounces. Unless it is a typo I cannot imagine where I ...

As the subject line states, this is wasp related but different from up-thread comments.

I like to say that it is not a vegetable garden that I cultivate, but rather I cultivate friends with vegetable gardens.

Last Sunday I went to the local orchard where I buy fruit, only to learn tha ...

Window is double-glazed with air space between the sealed panes. It would no doubt help if I cleaned it.
