This weekend September 9 - 10 - 11 I will be set up at Mt. Craft Days being held at the Somerset Historical Center. We will be dressed in period clothing and I will be selling Teas and Herbs. Lots of vendors demonstrating old time crafts. Fred and Rich will demonstrate coopering and Fred also talks about the Barn Stars found in Somerset and Bedford Counties.

Fairy Garden

The fairy garden is coming along fine. The grandchildren love hearing all the folklore about the plants in the garden, such as the foxglove which the fairies use for their clothes. Then there is the thyme that is a must for them to sleep upon. One evening as the fireflies started to appear, my grandson got very excited and was sure he saw the fairies moving about the garden. We watched and listened as we talked about how the fairies love to dance and needed the light to see and the bluebells provided their music. We also placed some jewels about the garden because they like shiny objects, but made sure we did not add any metal items. We also added a gazing ball because as you know fairies are very vain! It is a great way to get the kids involved with gardening and add a little adventure at the same time.
