My little flower garden, baby birds along with Hay

My little flower garden, baby birds along with Hay

Hello sweet friends,

Perhaps you are just reading my blog for the first time?

If yes, I pray you will return when you need to smile and find some inspiration. Jesus Christ is the reason I am alive today, the reason my blog will bring you peace, and strength to never give up. I am a walking talking miracle, I am a survivor of a semi-truck accident while riding as a passenger, life is never ever fair. This motor vehicle accident has left me forever permanently physically disabled, something I would never ever wish on anyone, disability is invisible in many cases to others, sadly it is very real to the person suffering with a disability. I am no longer able to stand for long periods of time without rib, back and hip pain. I can never go for a hike again or walk on a beach, go dancing, ride my equine on trail rides or even ride for long amount of time due to hip, rip and back pain along with my feet going numb. Sitting too long is difficult too as my pelvis wants to be elevated. My ribs will spasm from over working my body in any way and even from laughing while sitting down. Still, I live my life grateful and full of hope and joy, living each day as it is my last. Why? I am a miracle, I am a survivor and I choose to live my life not as a victim but as a victor.

In 2014 I started the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC business with my husband of twenty-three years. I work very hard to stay productive as I teach worldwide from my computer to my students computer “how to train a donkey, mule or horse.” Animals are GOD’s angels, healers sent to help us humans live our life with purpose and peace, I have loved animals since I was a child. Animals live in the moment if we humans could only learn to let go of anger, hate and grudges. Wow, what our world could be?

After the car accident my husband and I were forced to change our life 100%. We needed to move into land that would help me walk, no more hills, less rain as my arthritis is so bad. Looking ahead six years from the date of the car accident we have had an amazing journey. One of tears, pain, suffering, laughter and a grateful attitude. Before the motor vehicle accident I was a master gardener of flowers. I so loved to work in my garden, after the accident I could no longer bend and care for my flowers. We moved to our farm in Sequim, WA in 2014. God once again started whispering to me, and another beautiful creation in Jesus Christ name has been created, the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC, Sequim, WA surrounded by the beauty of the olympic mountains, we literally live in the middle of our hay-field. Wild life are entirely different in this blue hole called Sequim, WA.

Before we sold our home of fourteen years I carefully planned to take a few of my most favorite plants. This was not an easy decision as each plant was important to me when I designed and loved on my flower gardens in our former home. Here is a sneak preview of the miracle of life GOD in Jesus Christ name has placed into my heart, soul and mind. I so enjoy the garden, flowers are an important part of my life and now I am working on growing low sugar hay, and food for us. We planted a little fruit orchard last winter and I am grateful to share we have one peach and several apples. God just gave me another surprise a box full of baby birds. Nothing gives us a feeling of hope like a baby in human or animal form. Babies are like spring a new beginning, thus my first photo my little bird I am welcoming into this great big world with fresh water and bird food when he/she is ready.

Please no matter what you are facing in life never give up! God in Jesus Christ name is amazing. God will plant a dream and time can be years before the dream unfolds, this I know GOD will always take care of his children. We must trust, have faith and stay positive. This is never easy. Thus why I share my life with you.

quit never

GARDEN


GUEST POST!

I lived in Santa Barbara in 1990 when the drought was so dire. People who wanted green lawns had to paint them or, in cases of extreme wealth, they would import truck loads of water from some far away land. Southern California is once again facing a dire drought, but in the decades since […]

Purple Lady Bugs In Hawaii – True or False?


purupleladybugs

Select The truth about purple lady bugs in HI

Lady bugs are not just cute and sweet looking they are incredibly hard-working to remove aphids and more from our precious plants in the garden. Nurseries sell them, these are a special treat to give the grand children to open the box and let them fly in the garden. Make a wish!

Our new farm has lady bugs flying around our fruit trees all day long. GOD has blessed us with our new land.

Thank you Jesus!

LADY BUGS HELP OUR GARDEN NATURALLY

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Flowers that attract ladybugs are:

Roses, Angelica Calendula Caraway Chives Cilantro Cosmos Dill Fennel Feverfew Marigold Statice Sweet Alyssum Yarrow and more.

 

How to keep your ladybugs?

Insecticides will kill ladybugs the same as they will kill harmful bugs. Place shallow bird baths near your garden, ladybugs need to drink too. You can also build ladybug houses to provide shelter for your ladybugs.

 When you receive your ladybugs, place them in the fridge for a six to eight hours.  The cool temperature will slow the ladybugs down. Open the container and let them awake for a few hours before letting them go to do their job in your garden.

Most important release at night! Dusk is the best time to release ladybugs as, again, they will be likely to fly off. Release them near the plants and water source.

Wisteria “When To Prune”

Wisteria “When To Prune”

Dear Friends Of The Donkey Whisperer Farm

If you have been following my blog since 2009 you know I am a serious gardener. Wisteria seems to take forever to mature and then it appears to be a big mess if we do not know how to manage it. One of the most important considerations before you plant this mysterious and elegant plant is to understand how to set this plant up for success. Some homes simply do not have enough space for the wisteria. I call this plant the fairy tale of gardens, the grace and elegance is beyond compare.

059 - Copy

  1. Make sure you have a strong arbor to support this beauty.
  2. Plant away from any structures, i.e., home etc. As this plant will seriously become invasive if you do not learn how and when to prune, manage the plant.
  3. Do not prune every year as you will have no flowers, just leaves.
