2018 Farm Workshops

So, in my last post, I announced my intention to post twice a month. That was in May. It's now the end of July. In the past, I would likely be unkind to myself about not meeting my own expectations. Now I simply see this as something that happens regularly in a life beset by all sorts of interruptions to our plans, and I'm feeling okay about missing the original mark. Nevertheless, I do want to apologize if you have been missing my posts.

2018 Desk Calendars Are Ready for the Holiday Season

Every morning begins with a quick visit to the chickens to greet them for the day and let them into their run. After that, I head to the flower fields and get to work. But none of that happens without me first slinging my camera over my shoulder. I never know what delights await me on the farm, and don't want to miss the opportunity to capture something wonderful in a photo.
