I think I may have an obsession for purple flowers?
Seems like everything that is blooming right now is
either purple or white.
It certainly is such a pretty time of year here
on this old farm!
I am enjoying the Spring blooms.
We were scheduled to be on tour in England right now
and would have missed it - so there's the "purple" lining of it all I guess!?
Also, the farmer has been doing a lot of cleaning up around here
and this old hay rake has been rusting in the back forty for
as long as we've lived here - over 40 years!
He dug it out of the grass and with much effort was able
to get those gorgeous wheels off.
I've been wanting those for a long time and here they are:
Today was the date for the annual Mennonite Relief Sale in New Hamburg.
Because it was cancelled, due to Covid-19, they went ahead and auctioned off 100 quilts online.
What a joy to see the beautiful hand work with all profits going to
Mennonite Central Committee
for world relief. The feature quilt sold for $2,300 I believe.
Here is a link to the quilt catalogue if you care to have a peek.
We've been enjoying such lovely warm weather for the past few weeks,
but tonight it has turned quite cold with a risk of frost.
My garden is planted and the tomato plants are covered for tonight - just in case.
Hope everyone is still staying healthy and patient ...
Till next time .... stopping to smell the purple flowers.
