Water Water Everywhere

We woke up to lots of flooding this morning.
It stormed all night.
Our house is on a hill so we don't have flooding.
I think the whole state of Ohio
got flooding.
This is the Gristmill by Mohican State Park.
This is flooding from Plumrun Creek.
By the time I got the pictures the water had receded.

This is the Gristmill. I hope it didn't get damaged.
They have restored it.

Our park in town.

This is Plumrun Creek that goes through our farm.
Our fields are flooded.
It gets flooded there when we get alot of rain.
Have a nice evening, stay safe!

A Gardener's Prayer Rug

What a winter!
It snowed and snowed early this morning.
We ended up with about 6 to 8 inches
of heavy snow.
The storm was gone by 1:00 PM.
I'd rather have pretty white snow than mud.
Spring is going to be here before we know it.
I finished this rug and listed it on Ebay.
It is a Country Stitches design.
I love the rug.
Have a great weekend!

Another Crock Rug

I finished another crock rug today.
The last one was slightly different in color.
I thought I had plenty of wool to make another one.
Of course, I didn't.
So, today I had to dye more wool to finish the rug.
The pattern design is by Marlene Troyer~ Perennial Blessings.
On to another rug.
Have a nice evening!

Happy Valentine's Day

This winter my husband has been
feeding the wildlife on the farm.
My son got my husband a game camera
for Christmas.
Everyday Tom takes 4 five gallon buckets of corn
out in the field.
The woods surround the field.
Tom said when he is putting out the corn he
can see the eyes in the woods.

The squirrels are so cute!

I love how the male cardinal stands out in the picture.

The past few days we have gotten pictures of the turkeys,
deer, squirrels and birds all eating together.

Have a Happy Valentine's Day!!

Looking Forward To Spring

IIIt is the time of year I'm starting to get
ready to start seeds.
The last few years I have waited too
late to start seeds.
I grow my own impatients and
they take a long time to get big enough to plant.
This year I'm going to start early.
This is flower bed in the middle of my yard.
I forget what the yellow flowers are but,
they are take over.
In the spring I thin them out,
they still go crazy.

Front of our porch.
I dug up all my hydrangeas there.
I replanted them out in another bed.
They never bloom there sohopefully
moving them will help.

This window box is outside my kitchen window.
Every year it if fun to plan what
color scheme and plants to plant in there.

I I plant alot of wave petunias.

I hope to get back to hooking a rug.
I have 4 rugs started.LOL!
All day Friday I dyed wool,
I'm excited to hook the new colors.
Happy Sunday!

Feb. 1st!!

Right now it is raining hard and the thermometer says 24!!
That is so weird!
There is about 1/4" of ice outside.
I just hope we don't lose our electric.
We have the generator ready though, just in case.
I'm glad it's Feb..
Feb. always flies by and that's ok with me.
I have drawn up a few patterns on linen.
Need to get busy.
Stay warm!
