A Week in Farm Photos - July 7th - 13th

My husband's birthday is today. We celebrated a bit early, on Thursday, after one of our magpie ducks laid her very first two eggs for us the previous two days, which I promptly made into a beautiful cake decorated with fresh flowers.  Please enjoy these shots of our week on the farm, capped off by photos of the green duck eggs (yay!) and Mark's birthday cake.  Happy Birthday Mark and thank you so much for tolerating supporting all my endeavors and our foray into backyard farming!

  7. gorgeous quilt! Is it handmade? It looks like hand embroidered pieces, and such rich colours.

    1. It is. My grandmother made it. I so wish I had asked her the history before she died because its scraps of velvet and silk that she hand embroidered and she was very thrifty, a true farm woman and did NOT walk around wearing clothing made of those fabrics! So I'm curious where she got the scraps.

  8. OH! I just love seeing pics of your sweet farm!
    Thank you so much for sharing them!
