Back at the Farm

Summer came early this year and I missed spring all together.  All my tulips had already bloomed and so had cowslip, which I love to pick for tea. Immediately upon arriving, I went looking for the three Lady’s Slipper plants I had discovered last summer. And yes, all three where there and I found a forth one as well. I truly feel blessed to have such magnificent wild orchids living on my land.

Dear friends of Polli Talu Arts Center,

Twenty years after thatching the first roof, Polli Talu Arts Center needs its first major repair. In order to continue the activities and services that Polli Talu offers, we need to replace the floor in the art studio/dining room.
