So what's new? We are slowing down at the farm to take stock in what we have, get healthy, and prepare for the new season!
We planted a field of lavender. Seven different varieties for different purposes.

|We added a bit of rosemary in the field also|
|Maddie helping with the planting|
We fostered two more kitties in addition to Sophia.
|Thing One and Thing Two|

|Sophia not quite sure what to think about the two new invaders|
I got completely overwhelmed when Lola hurt her back.

We harvested apples and made apple butter.
|I so love apple butter!|
We had our soil composition tested in preparation for big construction in 2015.
I finished a BIG stained glass piece.
|Yes, that really is a glass saucer in there!|
We celebrated my mother's Big-Zero birthday.
|The Gentle Rancher made the banner|
|The Lovey cutting up the biggest prime rib ever|
And enjoyed the simple things of life on the farm.

|Ah, they are so bonded|
|Sophia and Thing Two|
|Thing Two, now named Cleopatra|
|Sophia is growing!|
|We are always amazed that we live here, in this land of beautiful sunsets|
|The persimmon tree is always neglected, yet produced so much fruit this year!|
|Weird weather had the apple and plum trees flowering in November.|
|Ghost Kitty, who has successfully integrated himself into the feral pride|
|Zenny, supervising the turkeys|
|Dang. Just beautiful|
|The dogs outside... and what are those on the roof?|
|Turkeys on the roof. Doesn't everyone have these?|
|Love this beautiful oak tree|
|Check out that sunset!|
The Lovey got a new knee.
|First day back home|
|Lots of recuperation, with animals, of course|
|So grateful for the rain!|
|Somewhere over the rainbow|
We decided we were going to keep Sophia and Cleopatra.
|Getting so big|
And now, onward to 2015.
