S P R I N G 🌿
Rejoice, rejoice! It’s cold outside with a north wind. I’m sitting on a cushion on the floor while the animals sprawl out on the couch. I felt like just doing a quick post, to share a few pictures of our last weekend of winter.
Despite the cold and the wind, I still feel spring in the air. This past weekend, we didn’t just hear the crows cawing but all kinds of birds and geese honking overheard. The bluejays have returned to our compost pile and the tips of the maples have buds. Spring is a late bloomer here and we likely will be in an in between state for another month. We are all itching to get outside.
The sun was so strong this Saturday and the temperature so pleasant. Jamie and I had a busy weekend going for walks with Henry, working outside and going on aimless country drives. It was a really beautiful end to this winter and I wanted to share with you little bits and pieces.
The outdoor work on this little piece of land seems endless! This weekend, we focused on picking up sticks that have fallen during the winter gales. We had a bonfire and let the chickens and Henry free (Henry is pretty good with the chickens, although she occasionally runs as fast as she can at them to scatter them to the wind ).
The end of winter! I can barely believe it! It does go by so quickly. I would like to do more posts about gardening and despite the cold, I have started quite a few seeds already indoors. But the extent of our gardening this month is cleaning up the yard and starting a few seeds. I am ecstatic for the growing season!
Wishing you all a beautiful new season!
