Thousand Flower Farm is located on Waldron Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. We grow vegetables, fruit, and flowers, raise sheep, weave rugs and knit hats for sale mainly in Friday Harbor, WA on nearby San Juan Island.
When the weather finally decided to change it did so with a vengeance. After nothing but a few spits of rain since the end of July it is now POURING. It's about time. A week ago I was saying that all this sunshine was beginning to get to me. It had begun to feel spooky. It was so still and clear and sunny. Not right for October in the Pacific Northwest. Well, no longer. The ground is so dry that it can't soak up all this rain so we have puddles everywhere. But the dust is settled and I can see all the plants relaxing. Everything had begun to look weary and dusty and dry. Well, here's to Fall and holing up inside by the fire knitting, weaving, reading, cuddling the cats. I have to admit that I like this time of year. And speaking of the cats they keep going from one door to another hoping that summer will be behind one of them. And when it isn't, looking pathetically at me to DO SOMETHING.
