For a while now I have been wanting to rename the farm. Before you ask me why I would say “I” have been wanting, know that the boys/men of this house could really care less what the farm is named (or what the airstream is named, or what my camera is named, etc… etc…).
I had shared with you my thoughts on Blackberry Farm after a particularly poke-filled blackberry cane cutting session. And, after a few weeks of pondering the name, I think that it fits, and I like it. And, none of the boys are completely against it. But, with there being quite a number of Blackberry Farms out there, I wanted something that would set it apart a bit – thus the “on the hill” added to the name. You see, we actually do live on a hill – a really nice hill, filled with horse pastures and pretty little farms, views of either the Olympic Mountains (like us) or the Cascade range, depending on which side you live on. We also have a peek-a-boo view of Seattle which is nice, and a great view of multiple firework displays on the Fourth of July. So, we like our little hill rather a lot and as we are a little farm on a hill, Blackberry Farm on the hill fits just fine indeed.
My dreams for Blackberry Farm this year include a few new animals, some serious growth of the vegetable gardens, as well as planting a LOT of flower seeds that I harvested last year. If we are talking *serious* dreams – I would LOVE to add doors off of the kitchen to a patio where our gorgeous table from our incredibly sweet friends would live, along with the BBQ. Daddy? Handsome husband? Are you listening…???
What is on your dream list this spring? What plans do you have for your home? The planning is often one of my favorite parts of the process!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend mes amies – we certainly did!
