There are many reason why I love my Alfalfa Field


Unlike my Garden...






Where I spend hours and hours weeding




I don't have to weed, water, cut or fertilize my Alfalfa Field




The field beyond my garden is tended by a young and conscientious Farmer...he makes me look good




Poppies, Daisies and cornflowers (these are perennial Bachelor Buttons) remind me of wheat fields in central Europe




Simple Flowers and one of my hand painted Jugs are always welcome in my House

  4. Hi Francesca, When we lived in the city we lived in a Canyon and we liked it. But it is so much nicer living in the wide open countryside.

  5. Hi Anyes, Thank you for your lovely comment. I wonder if Google will ever fix the comment problem. A solution you might try: When you log into your Google account, UNCHECK the "stay logged in" box. Then proceed as before.

  6. Dear Lala, I'm looking so forward to receiving your beautiful apron which you are selling in your Etsy shop. They are truly little works of Art. Can't wait to receive mine.

  7. Poppies, cornflowers and wheat are a very traditional pattern on many German folk items. Your bouquet could have been cut from the farm fields not far from my house. Beautiful!

  8. Beautiful images Gina! Anything that doesn't need to be weeded is a good thing. :-)

    Thanks for joining the garden party,

  9. What a beautiful, pastoral setting. It looks so peaceful. I would think having that view could add years to your life. I really look forward to seeing it for myself.

  17. Gina, I don't seem to be getting your posts after this one of June 14th, though I'm sure I briefly saw one subsequently about a find at a flea market in Florence. Is there something wrong at blogspot or am I wrong and you simply haven't done any posts more recently?

  18. Dear Karen, This was my last post. Have a new post as of this morning, dated June 18th. The Florence flea market was an older post which I submitted to one of the blog parties. So, you are correct, on both counts. Have a great weekend.

  19. Dear Gina,
    Just somehow noted or remembered or....that we have an Alfalfa field just in front of our house in the size of 1 acre, would you believe?!! Ron hat vor Jahren 'Lucerne' ausgesaet (in Deutsch ist es Luzerne) and we gave it to a farmer to look after it. Two times hay-making/crop per year!!! Beautiful smell and...of course...all the wild flowers! I really don't know why I never mention it! Somehow the expression 'alfalfa' is not in my mind - apart from your blog. And here it 'sits' - just in front of our door-step!
    You must come with Gene one day to visit us, please! I just feel that we have so much in common, apart from being original German!
    Herzlichen Gruss, Karin

    Sorry about my belated comment, but 'blogged-out' for a while.... Just dating up with comments to all of my blogger-followers-friends....and...
    ...and kept my favorite ones at the end, to read quietly with a refreshing aperitif to enjoy!

  20. Dear Karin, We will come and visit...it is already in the plan. And Gene keeps reminding me that he would like to see your part of France. I had forgotten the name for Alfalfa in German but now will remember it.

  21. So the little purple flowers are bachelor buttons? I have some that have popped up in my yard and didn't know what they were. I'm crazy about pitchers full of flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi Lulu, Yes, they are PERENNIAL Bachelor buttons, not to be confused with the ANNUAL Bachelor Button (also known as cornflower). Thanks for you visit. Hope to see you again soon.

  23. Oooooo, beautiful flowers! Poppies are one of my favs.

  24. Oh...you've got this native Californian missing the alfalfa fields where I grew up... mostly corn fields here! Your flowers are marvy!
