The weather has been wonderful.
Springtime is everywhere.
The kids made pinecone birdfeeders.
Our old Willow Tree has beautiful bark.
The deer ate much bark off the lilac bushes this winter.
They call it the village.
Our fruit trees are doing well.
Yes, a few golf balls too.
The girls are enjoying the green grass of freeranging again. Some are still barebacked from the mean Roosters we had. Their feathers are slowly growing back.
My garlic is coming up nicely.
Look how great the soil looks from the
chicken manure from last year.
The buds remind me of strawberries with their little caps.
It helps to hide the fish from the heron until the lilly pads cover the pond.
The frogs rather like the greenness of the water too.
I will pick these this weekend to make Violet jelly.
The Clematis is getting big heavy heads and ready to bloom.
We gutted this garden. It was filled with over grown ragweed and Baptisia that spread like wildfire. Sometimes you just gotta start fresh. I need to find something to dress up the septic cover. I used to have a chair sitting on it with a watering pail.
I wonder if I could stencil it.
They are surrounding my deck and under my windows so that when the wind blows I get the scent of fresh lilac in the house.
It's better than Febreze.
