Well, we have finally had some much needed rain, which means now, the garden is greening and the fruit trees are blossoming. We've planted our vegetable bed, the peas are up, the rhubarb needs harvesting and every day, I make to do lists for two houses and two gardens. Every little thing that needs done, needs to be done twice, both here and at the farm. (If you're looking for an update about what's been happening, there, read this.) Let's just say, this spring and summer are going to be interesting. And very full. (It's all good, though, reallyreally.)
These photos are from May 4, and already, there's so much more growth.
From May 8.
I know, squirrels can be a nuisance. But this particular squirrel stays close by when we are out in the garden and poses for photos. I can't help being smitten.
On the way to the kids' choir concert, last week, we saw a moose.
And this week.
It makes me exceedingly happy to see all these future apples, plums, peaches and pears, blooming in our little garden by the sea.
