Happy Easter from All of Us at Green Hill Farm!
For those of you who follow this blog, you may remember my post from a few days ago titled, Above and Beyond: An Everyday Hero. Last Saturday night, a major water pipe in our home broke, and a very kind and determined person rescued us. We thought he was just our plumber, but he turned out to be much […]
BANG! BOOM! WHOOSH! These are sounds no homeowner ever wants to hear, especially late on a snowy, Saturday evening when your house is over 200-years-old. Farmguy and I were finally relaxing last night, after spending all day studying and making flashcards for our WSET sommelier exam, when suddenly, we heard a crashing sound that sent us both into a heart […]
Button & Ivy on the first day of spring Green Hill Farm March 2018 In honor of this snowy, first day of spring and the lovely landscape it created, I thought I would share a rustic, winter painting I completed earlier this year as well as some photos of Green Hill Farm. “Waiting for Spring,” 8 x […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Green Hill Farm Tuesday, March 13th We’ve enjoyed sunny days, blue skies, greening pastures, and daffodils over the last couple of weeks, and then…..it snowed four inches on Monday. But happily, most of it melted the next day. So, once again, we’re on our way to spring. Happy Thursday!

We host approximately four to six of these gatherings a year, and we always enjoy coming up with new and (hopefully) fun ideas. The inspiration for our “Paint and Sip” night came […]
DaVero Farms & Winery Healdsburg, California March 2018 Farmguy and I are in California this week. Our visit is a combination of wine field trip and birthday celebration. But, before we were able to have a glass of something sparkling to celebrate Farmguy’s special day, we met some very charming representatives of DaVero Farms & Winery. DaVero Farms & Winery is a biodynamic family farm producing small lots of exceptional Italian wine and olive oil in the Dry Creek Valley. Their motto is “Grow what belongs here. Be Patient.”
I’ve always loved the late actor James (Jimmy) Stewart. I probably first marveled at his talent in one of the many Alfred Hitchcock films in which he appeared. But, my favorite Jimmy Stewart film of all time is still the Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful life. Most people are familiar with Stewart’s work, but if you’re not, I hope you’ll enjoy this beautiful and moving tribute he wrote to his beloved dog, Beau.
