I can’t seem to get over the bliss of a land restored.
To be able to look outside and see green, glorious green, instead of parched brown.
I can’t get enough of it.
I love wandering around the farm, sauntering through the shady spots under the trees, ambling through my gardens. It is so wonderful to see things actually growing again, spreading out and up in glorious life.
Like these gorgeous calendula blossoms – so darn perky and cheery.
