Busy with Spring!

The world wakes up when spring arrives! Life is busy and satisfying. Sunshine, wind, and rain take turns sharing the days of the week. Chores inside and out keep one active and productive. It's a good feeling. The scent of lilacs fill the air. New garden growth is sprouting through the earth. Who knew that it took kale so long to sprout! I'd about given up on it when little shoots finally pushed their way to the light.  Tomorrow starts the month of May; the very best month of all! It's the month when the roses start to bloom and the vegetable garden really takes off with new growth. There's so much to be thankful for!

A trip to the Farm & Garden store for plants was productive. Not only was I able to find new plants that I needed for the garden, but a side trip took me to look at the baby chicks and geese. Aren't they adorable? It's the same Farm & Garden store where I'd take the boys when they were young. More often than naught, we'd come home with chicks, geese, or a turkey or two. Peep-peep!

  1. What a sweet mosaic...are you thinking about raising chickens? Seems as if everybody is.
