This morning, we found a huge branch had broken from one of the large maple flanking the barn stage. There may be a bit less shade next summer.
It is amazing we did not lose power--ice covered branches were resting atop the power lines.
This morning the ice was a bit softer with a crusty layer of snow, so it was much easier to get around. After feeding everyone, I went for a walk around the farm with my camera.

Thank you also to the many community members who made this event a success by singing in the chorus, providing housing for the cast and crew, attending the performances, and volunteering in other ways.
If there is any way we can manage it, we would love to bring this production back to Squash Blossom Farm again!

A Cow Puja is a celebration of the cows--thanking them for blessing us. We are so grateful that members of the Hindu temple have come every year to lead an authentic Hindu Puja ceremony.
But then we combine it with food, music,local artisans and a celebration of all the farm animals and autumn bounty and beauty, making it our own midwestern agricultural/multicultutral/cultural festival.
