A Day at the Farm

My sister and I attended the Garfield Farm Heirloom Garden show today, and what with watching Duke and Dock, the oxen team, in action, and touring the heirloom flower garden, talking to a bee keeper, and taking a brief tour of the Garfield Inn itself, we had a busy afternoon. The weather was perfect. More events are on the calendar, which you can see at http://www.garfieldfarm.org. To be honest, it was the oxen who captivated me. They are utterly mesmerizing to watch, being in some sort of oxen zen state. They radiated calmness, though the moment the oxen wrangler said “Duke and Dock, gee haw!” they instantly sprang into action to haul a log. So it was really wonderful to see them. Here’s a photo album of our day.
