Raising Aylesbury Ducks | Farm Raised With P. Allen Smith





I'm off chasing ducks, rather than rabbits, for now.  Discovered these Aylesbury ducks on Create, P. Allen Smith, Garden to Table program this morning.  Should I inherit or win millions or billions,  I will purchase land.  There will be gardens - flowers and vegetable gardens.  Ducks, chickens, sheep(s), fur babies - dogs and cats.  Milk cows.....and I will have to live forever to care for and share the bounty!



Daydreaming is so good for me.

All but left off blogging.........

baby elk and mommie’s rear end
this poor young mommie has a tag in both ears, and this “tracking device”.  leave them alone i say.  send a human to brave the elements and track the animal, if you will, it would be cheaper too!
one can never see to many mountains.  my eyes journey over these mountains again and again, never tired of the same vistas. (Blue Ridge Parkway, near Maggie Valley, NC)


All but left off blogging......

After loosing my original blog my blogging experience nose dived.

It happens and it happened to me.

From time to time I will post here.  Stop in if you will.

Happy Midsummers Day!!!!!

Summer, summer, summer, is thrilling me to my finger tips!

Thank you who have always been here.....It was fun....





and because I love faery tales, and legends

 and day dreaming, I leave you with this..

Sunday Scenes

Home Sweet Home
Across the street from us Georgia 515
Wild Honeysuckle dripping wet with rain.

A cozy rainy day.  A slight cool wind chills me.  The smell of wild honeysuckle and wet leaves is strong as I walk Molly and take pictures.

The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia are just outside my window.

Simplicity of nature rules here at Plum Nelly Campground, Ellijay, Georgia.  

Peace is deep and wide.

..."Come with me into the heart inside the heart, the world inside the world.
..."

My Granddaughter and Kitty 2014


I am a yogini. I am timeless.
I am a woman offering myself on
the altar of truth.
I am a roar
I am a sigh
I am a billion sparkles of light.
Come closer to me, I will hold you in my heart.
Come with me into the realms of constant blossoming,
where each atom is flaunting its stunning power.
Together we dare to be that big.
To be that radiant.
To be that trusting.
Come with me into the heart inside the heart, the world inside the world.
Our roots growing deep into earth and cosmos,
into total belonging.
::
Chameli Devi
(Thankfully many wonders and truths encourage me.)

  1. Yogini
  2. Yogini is the sacred feminine force made incarnate: the goddesses of mythology (Lakshmi, Parvati, Durga, Kali) as well as the ordinary human woman who is enlightened, both having exuberant passion, spiritual powers and deep insight, capable of giving birth to saints, peacemakers, and Yogis.

Mother's Day and Jacksonville, Florida


Mother’s Day we spent in Jacksonville, Florida.  

Chamblin’s  Uptown our favorite bookstore was open.  Wandering the isles among tall bookcases is so fun.  Found a George Sand biography!

Historic downtown is delightfully filled with grand and avant guard architecture.

Homeless persons are in the number of over a hundred that I could see.  Makes you think and think and pray.
