This is an exciting time of year for us at Dragonfly FAr. We hope for as much rain as possible and then worry that everything is going to drown. We'd still rather have the rain. We are starting to see the transition from sticks and mud to the first big bloom.
During the winter Bonnie spends most of her time in meetings planning weddings and events for the coming season. In her free time she's working on seed orders and planning the garden. She spends every free minute she gets in the greenhouse starting seeds and watching them grow. She's really excited about some of the new varieties of flowers that we'll be growing this year.
Many of these are our residents enjoying the puddle that the farm becomes after a big rain. After those few hot days we don't have any more standing water. We have also noticed more birds this year than ever before. The trees are full of robins and many others that we have yet to identify. We've been graced by some enormous and graceful egrets and blue herons. Ray hopes that we'll get some more rain so he can get a picture of them. They like to stand out in the flooded fields and feed. If you are thinking about coming out to the farm you will still need your rain boots.

The garden has quickly transformed into sticks and mud. Pablo has been busy pruning the roses. He loves visitors, please feel free to throw on your boots and come wander in the garden.
