Back in Paradise

Well, I’m actually on Paradise- Paradise Road that is. 

Now that graduation for my oldest is over, we’ve come to my parents to be a help around the farm in any way we can. I wish everyone could experience this place. Right now the weather is perfect – not too cool or too warm. The peonies are still in bloom along with all the summer flowers. 

My mom put a bouquet in my room.  


The scent absolutely fills the whole room.  I think I’ve slept better because the flowers have perfumed my dreams. 

Another favorite – the herb garden. It’s filled with every herb imaginable and lettuces. It allows us to have really great salads like this…

The last of my favorites today would have to be my view this morning. 

What can I say?  Sunrise – check. Deer browsing in the field – check. Songbirds filling the air with their morning songs – check. The occasional croak of a fringing the pond – check. The hum of bumblebees and hummingbirds – check. 

It really is Paradise. 

Of course, my uninterrupted view did last. One of the pups needed some lap time.

  1. Paradise Road is paradise. It is very peaceful and relaxing at the Farm Retreat. I am almost jealous that I am not there with you enjoying it. Enjoy your time with the parents.
