Weekend at Paper Road Farm

How was your weekend?  Mine started out like this....

Saturday I  had the best time hitting the local flea markets....which

are amazing......

I bought a variety of flowers, herbs, and vegetables to add to my garden.

When I got back home I went inside the farm's little combination potting shed/chicken coop
and I bah-reed some pots.  That's what we say in the south bah-reed and just because I am here in New Jersey, don't think I'll start saying borrowed.

Like my little plant area?   Ah, do....still in southern girl talk.

and the herbs....
 and a shot of the garden....

But hold on, saved the best for last.....I  saw these little guys when I returned from the markets on Saturday.
Did you say Awww in your southern accent?

You'ns Pick?

Last weekend Jeff and I went to our favorite little music spot near our home in Shady Valley, TN.  It is in a little backroads town called Laurel Bloomery, TN.  The Music Hall is located in the old Morefields Country store building.  Seating consists of a collection of cast off sofas and chairs and there is always a crowd so come early for a seat.  Some of the regulars congregate on the front porch and if they don't recognize you they will ask..."you'ns pick"?  This means did you come to join in, because that's how it's done at the Little Ole Opry Store.  The music is down home authentic and if you are fine with a hot dog and some root beer then plan to eat ....I say, nothing finer.
