2 years ago today ~
September 25th, 2013,
we made the journey and permanent move up to our farm here in Belmont Maine.
Yes, a dream come true for both us.
Moving the garden ‘stone people’ (statuary) was the first move in September 2012.
Then once the house was sold .. we had to move SunRose and our personal household.
The ‘Delancey Street Movers’ were amazing and I would highly recommend them.
They were understanding (stress of moving home and business),
and efficient and not one broken item .. NOT one.
The transformation here is amazing from the cleared out driveway,
to the patio / fire pit, the new bedroom / living .. which is on the first floor ..
getting the chickens that we lovingly call the ‘girls’ (11 of the girls) ..
And of course with joy comes some sorrow .. the ebb and flow of life ..
We lost my beloved Pup Sasha Feb 2014
and then 2 weeks later lost Mama Coco my sweet kitty from the Bronx House of Detention.
Enter Conan our German Shepherd puppy .. who is truly a joy in our life!
wow .. and we did survive puppyville .. a challenge I tell ya.!!
Chuck lost his Mom Febuary of this year 2015 and she is very missed ..
and the rythmn of life goes on ..
Thank you for following our progress here on the farm. Sharing in our joys and yes sorrows ..
Our orchard is getting established. Our Elderberries seem to be thriving ..
with the help of Teddy Mattson his forte is permaculture.
He is really a blessing and helping shape the farm crops for us.
Hugel Kultur is amazing and he has created 5 so far ..
Mostly for my herb bed and perennials .. to read more about this visit:

Hoping next year to have herbs,
elderberry tinctures and dried elderberries
to sell on SunRose.
So stay tuned to the future happenings here.
Life is a journey for sure .. each and every day a treasure.
I am so very grateful and so very blessed to be living here
on this amazing land with my life partner ..
he has made this incredible move easier for me.
And sharing life with him has been a true adventure.
We will be at the Common Grounds Fair / MOFGA this year .. our first ..
and hopefully, not our last.!
Look for us at the Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm.
There will be a ‘sniffapalooza’ going on ..
AND you get to meet these amazingly beautiful creatures ..
they have a wonderful gift shop
where they sell their fiber for knitting and also clothing.
Hope to see you there.
