Yesterday, the blacksmith and I rode along with Tammy of Flat Creek Farm and her blacksmith hubby to northern Missouri.
The guys are helping Mara, who recently lost her blacksmith hubby, get his tools and equipment ready for an auction.
We thought they should really be called the Missouri Pickers! (My I love that butt shot!)
Dorothy the cow greeted us upon our arrival. (Blacksmith's can make some amazing things!)
Mara is keeping her husband Ed's orchids alive. Gosh are they beautiful! I really wish you could see these two blue ones in person. I've never seen a flower with that bright color. She tells me all they need are 3 ice cubes every Tuesday! Right, I've never be able to grow them like that.
This fuchsia one also is spectacular!
It seems all three of us blacksmith wife's like handkerchiefs. Mara let me pick all I wanted from her stash. I found these purple ones, including some that Tammy had already returned.
When I got home I went through my pile and pulled all the purple ones out. I then found two more on Ebay. I am collecting purple ones to make another blouse for me.
You can read about my last blouse here.
