Getting along with Hercules

As you can see by the pictures, Hercules is growing. He has been such an enjoyable addition to our home. He is very sweet and loves to be held. The harness does not bother him at all. He has already learned that when this gets put on, it's time to go out and run in the grass. My biggest worry about bringing him home was the danger he would be in around Sophie and our cats. The first few days, they all would sniff him and then try to nip or grab him, thinking I had brought them a delicious treat. But now, as you can see, they are learning... we don't eat family! However, I still would not leave him unattended. We got so much rain last night! Much needed rain. So this weekend I will be able to go and till the ground that was once like concrete. I will soon be planting after that. So this will be my last post until the weekend is over. I hope you all , dear friends, have a wonderful weekend. I will catch up with you next week.

You have the life of my dreams!!I can't wait to have my farm! I live in a small town in GA righ now, in an older subdivision which I detest. But I love my house in spite of it all and I try my best to make it as "farm like" as possible. I do a lot of gardening and I have 5 dogs and 2 cats. We are planning on moving to the hills of TN someday for our farm! Good luck! I hope everything turns out even more beautiful and wonderful than you ever imagined!!

That is just as sweet as can be!!!! And the greenhouse is to die for!

I noticed your post about your wisteria. I got a cutting a few years ago and have hoped it would take, as it is my favorite. The first year, it just "thrived." The next year, it grew, but no flowers. The next year, flowers!!!! Just a few! This year????? LOADED!!!!!! I am just so happy! Give it time! It will soon be at home! Cora
