Happy, happy April 1st!!
Although I have something to crow about...
I am going to whisper it to you.
I hate to jinx myself by proclaiming this loudly.
Come a little closer...it's just the best news.
Spring has arrived.
After fearing for weeks that perhaps this would be the year that Mother Nature
might play a cruel joke and skip spring altogether...
I think it might have finally arrived.
With temps around 60 yesterday afternoon,
I shed my winter jacket and headed outside to work in the yard
with nothing but a long sleeved shirt and jeans.
I had forgot how free one could feel without the confines of snow pants, sweatshirt, jacket, hat,
scarf and gloves.
I spent the afternoon in the company of my friends,
happily cleaning out garden boxes...
sending last year's leftover dead growth to the compost pile.
Farm chores are always a pleasure to do...
with so much company and comic relief!
Everyone came out yesterday afternoon to commune with me.
And in case you were wondering what Sam is up to?
Well, apparently one of the barn kitties used this garden box as a litter box...
so Sam is unearthing a few kitty "truffles" for a mid afternoon snack.
His morning snack was "kitty almond rocca" from the barn litter box.
I told you before...
Sammy, whom I love with all my heart, is the grossest dog ever!
Since we are working in the box next to the greenhouse,
let's take a little look inside.
Well, I will take this as proof that Spring has indeed arrived.
Look at all that green starting to emerge!
Next stop...fairy garden.
I think it's time to make sure that the fairies have woken from their winter slumber.
With all this garden work that needs to be done,
I will surely need their help!
