Reality vs. Fantasy

Who guessed wine?
Somebody drank all the wine without us.
It was french wine.
They probably enjoyed it very much.
They left us half of an empty barrel, which leads us to my dream coming true...

My very own Barrel Farm.
Marigolds, green beans and a tomato.
Ahh. It's a start.

and I do emphasize the but,
is it so wrong to dream bigger?

So idyllic, Natalie. Your barrel is going to be great! Reminds me to revamp mine for some fall veggies.

I agree whole heartedly with you about it being a start. I have just one lonely tomato plant and doubt I'll get anything but such is life. The barn photo is simply gorgeous!

A barrel farm! I want one... I wonder where I could find something like that! How very cool! I can't wait to see everything grow! :)

And no, never downsize your dreams. Never.

Denise, hello. I can never get to your blog... only to your profile. *Where* are you?

Janece, my very exclusive whiskey barrel connection is: Home Depot. $19.95. Drill a couple of holes for drainage, then you are set.

I don't have a blog yet Natalie.

I wish you a big, lush, and invigorating farm full of chickens (and other animals) and of course lots and lots of growing vegetables, fruits, and flowers!
