charlotte home info: Farms and Stables in Waxhaw, NC .... Welcome to Cedarhill Farm - 09/12/11 10:47 PM
Today I was out and about in Union county and have driven by this equestrian center many times, so today I actually stopped and took a couple of pictures.

"Cedarhill today encompasses 40 acres of fields, streams, rings, barns, and paddocks. Home to over 50 horses including boarders, school horses, and horses in training, there is always something going on!"

I was so disappointed today for there were no horses grazing in this pasture.  Many times there are beautiful horses with their warming blankets moving about this pasture.

This morning as I did my morning walk to check out the different flower beds I came upon the Dahlia bed and with the recent rains and heat they were looking pretty sad.  Over grown, lots of grass which needed to be pulled and the bed desperately needed mulch.  I decided to roll up my sleeves, grab my garden gloves and dig in.  Several hours later it was all groomed, cleaned, weeded and mulched.
I did cut back the Dahlias for they were out of control.  I will do a better job at staking them next year as they begin to … (14 comments)
