Week 45: Rich Man My great-great grandfather, Ezekiel Henry Johnson (1830-1911), apparently didn't do too badly for himself when he went to California for the Gold Rush. According to a history of Clinton County, Indiana, Ezekiel started out as a blacksmith in Ohio. "After learning the trade he traveled in many cities, working at his trade. In April, 1853, he borrowed money from his father in order to go to California. He remained there eight years and four months, engaged in blacksmithing and mining, and during that time accumulated considerable wealth. He returned by the Panama route in August 1861." After his return east, he moved to Shelby County, Indiana, married Martha Seward, and established a mercantile business. In 1874, he moved to Colfax, Indiana, and started a new shop. At the age of 50, he retired, "thinking he had accumulated sufficient means," but after a year went back into business again. He didn't retire for good until he was 72. The ambrotype of Ezekiel was probably taken while Ezekiel was in California. The ad is from a 1899 Colfax newspaper. #52ancestors #genealogy #ancestry #vintagephoto #vintagephotos #glimpsesofthepast #ambrotype #goldrush #casedimage #mercantile #generalstore #clintoncountyindiana

Feverishly marking all the Dahlias. Forecast has an impending first frost or freeze coming tonight or tomorrow. Not quite ready to let these go for the season but also needing the space for more bulbs and peonies which should arrive next week. Fall clean - up can be daunting but allowing the soul of the soil to get it’s rest is necessary. It needs to recharge and get ready for next year. So dahlias marked -✔️, then to dig, wash, divide and store for the winter. #dahlias #dahliacare #fallflowercleanup #flowerfarmer #localgrownflowers #clintoncountyindiana #womenwhofarmflowers

HOPE is : growing Dahlias......This is a photo of our “ besties” & our “uglies”........Dahlias go like this.... get them into the ground at just the right time (even when historic flooding occurs) hope for enough days of sunlight but not too hot, pinch them at just the right time to encourage multiple blooms, hope for no diseases or virus to attack the plant, hope that your bug pressure doesn’t destroy your buds before they even bloom ( TPB’s think we are having a party at our farm) make sure you net or corral them before a big gust of wind blows them over and then just hope, really hope you get some blooms..... that are usable!...That is what growing dahlias is really all about..... the reason we wait patiently and hope to see the fruits of our labor! Lovely to look at but daunting to grow. Just keep chanting to ourselves....” We will figure these out or exhaust ourselves trying....😂#dahlias #growingdahlias #fallflorals #gardenflowers #flowersofinstagram #clintoncountyindiana #myfarmflowers #dsfloral #dinnerplatedahlias

Fall in all her warmth!.... orange, gold, and burgundy, can’t drink in enough of these colors. One of our favorite season’s! Fall is definitely making her way here in Indiana. The rustle of the corn fields, the smell of the corn dryer running with corn in it, apple cider, caramel apples, apple crunch from fresh picked apples, cozy sweaters, football, 🎃’s , pumpkin pancakes...... only in the Fall do we get these glorious things....#burnstorangeflowers #fallflowers #autumnfarmvibes #fallweddings #farmhouseflowersllc #womenwhofarmflowers #slowflowers #clintoncountyindiana

Loved having some #girltime with the other night! Even though we are in the midst of moving, I am finding the importance of taking a break here and there - not always easy to do during a busy season of life, but quite necessary! 💚

I like to think of Ammi as nature’s “summer snowflake”. Lots of airy florets that come together to form the shape of the whole sparkly flake! Look forward to these and their sister flower, Dara, each summer season. #zinnias #rudebeckia #lemonbasil #bupleurum #yarrow #ammi #snapdragons. #farmhouseflowersllc #ayearinflowers #farmfreshflowers #farmerflorist #farmbouquet #clintoncountyindiana #womenwhofarm
