“When spring came, even the false spring,
there were no problems except where to be happiest.”
After weeks of frosty mornings and ice-covered windshields, it’s wonderful to step outside into warmth and sunlight and bits of green here and there.
These days I look forward to hanging laundry on the line and watering my gardens instead of having to psych myself up for the freezing ordeals. It may be a false spring but it’s healing, glorious weather and I’m loving every minute of it. Is there anything better than sunshine on bare shoulders after the cold of winter?
Bear has caught the inspiration bug too, building an amazing pen for our chickens full of mulberry trees and climbing vines to provide both food and shade. It’s shaping up to be a beauty and I’ll share pics when it’s finished. He’s also collecting all the bits and pieces we need to fence in and cover two orchards full of plums, apples, oranges, blood oranges, lemons, hazelnuts, chestnuts, figs, and pomegranates, with room to add in other trees as we acquire them. It’s so exciting to see these projects come together bit by bit.
