Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

It's Fall In Klamath Falls...

It is fall around here..This weekend I decorated my front porch, door and made some yummy Granola. It is my sisters recipe and she makes it every year for christmas giving..
A great homemade treat.

I strung some orange lights along the railing as well..
