Fall brought with her a bunch of raspberries?

What a surprise! Raspberries on the bush in September. Actually the first day of fall brought this handful of raspberries to me this morning Thank you Fall and welocme to our farm. Thank you Fall! I see there are many more on the bush that are just turning...Is it me or is the first day of fall a little late to have a crop of raspberries? I have lots of yellow and orange leaves on the trees all around me and red berries on the bush! Has anyone ever heard of this? I'm truly baffled..Mother Nature has surprised me again. One of the reasons I adore her.....Happy Fall to all.

You just never know..........

Opening today was great. It started out very slow until Kate and her firend Mary showed up! The girls visited with the animals and as you will see were welcome in the barn yarnd. Dahli Llama who doesn't let anyone touch him, he's a hands off kind of guy let Kate pet, rub and kiss him. He blew kisses right back to her and loved the attention. All the other critters were quite interested in these visitors as well. There was some great kisses and rubbing going on until Mary decided to come between Dahli and his girlfriend Kate. Well, as you can see he let Mary pet him and then SPIT! Yes, he spit. Not a ugly smelly green spit (thank god) but a spit just the same. Mary was such a good sport even while it brought a mighty large laugh from myself and Kate! Another day in the barnyard, you just never know with that Dahli Llama. Mary purchased some yarn to make a couple of scarves, but I did notice none of the yarn was Llama, hmmmmmmm...
I guess Kate told folks on the way out that this was the place to visit becasue wow, we got busy for the last hour and a half. One right after another! As always the most wonderful people stop at this farm! Thanks to all the visitors today! And a special thanks to Kate and Mary who really sparked things up in the barnyard! Anytime girls, and Mary please come back!

Newest gift items!

Hi all, its 2 am and here I am. I just had to get all these little knitted squares in the washing machine to get them felted tonight! And in the shop for tomorrow! A little OCD, maybe? I have decided I would like to make these felted coasters that I'm teaching as a beginner knitting class for the holidays in all the holiday colors. These will make such great hostess gifts and grab bag gifts. A simple but useful gift. Here are just a few that will be going into the shop.
