early spring at Deerfield Farm

It's early spring here on Deerfield Farm... little layde's in their best looks & on their best behavior... wearing sweet sprigg'd frocks, silke & straw bonnets bedecked with ruched silke ribbons & paper flowers, antique lace & rustling silkes brushing the toes of bonbon sweet slippers...tiny curls framing wide eyes & pink cheeked looks... soon there'll be baby chicks & the orchard in bloom, seedlings sprouting in the old greenhouse, meadlowlarks singing from the budded branches of the old lilac. I'll be sharing more of our farm as the days become warm and the comforting hills change from her dress of winter weary colors to the pale green softness of new grass. I must say a special Thank you to all my dear friends who made our Early Spring offering last evening such a wonderful event! You are all greatly appreciated and we could not do this without you all. Happy Spring!
