Fun At The Homestead

One day Little Shadow went to her Family Homestead and spent the night.When they got up they did chores and ate breakfast. Little Shadow wanted to make dandelion jelly ,so they went outside to pick dandelion blooms, brought them in cleaned them ,and poured 2 c. boiling water over them to soak for 24hrs. and make jelly.
After that she played with her wagon pulling her doll.She watched the birds come to the feeders and eat. And they had a picnic on the porch.
Hope your day has been as much fun as ours has been.
Have a great day!

Little Shadow has the right idea on a perfect day! Have a blessed one Lib!

Lib that sounds like the perfect day to me.I remember as a child filling a wash tub up with water and picking every dandelion I could find to add to the water. I would spend the better part of the day stirring it with a stick because I was making supper for my babies.

Hope your week is filled with many blessings.

Hi Lib,
What a beautiful picture. Little Shadow is so engrosed in what she is doing. I am glad you are having happy times, you deserve it.
It looks as if you are having some nice warm weather, its still rather chilly here. I have things waiting to plant out in my garden but its not quite warm enough yet.

Cheers, Eileen.

I should make some dandelion jelly too! I think there's plenty of them in my yard, lol. ;o)

Glad y'all had a good Easter, Lib, and hope you have a good evening.

Love and hugs,

Love the pic of Little Shadow , Lib. Makes my heart happy to see another young lady learning about herbs , hope she'll continue that path.
I have my 2 grandsons today , hope they will help me gather some dandelions and violets for jelly.
Hope your Easter was Blessed.
