You may have noticed that Maven Haven sits at the edge of our apple orchard.
It's the very coldest spot on the farm... its own little micro-climate. Amazingly, Spring arrives about two weeks later in this particular spot than it does elsewhere on the farm.
The daffodils in the front pasture have been blossoming for weeks, but, here in the apple orchard, they are just opening.
It's wonderful to see that all of the planting work that I did last summer is coming back again this year.
I will be adding a few more specimens to this garden in the next week... hoping that something will be blooming every day until the next snowfall (hopefully not for many, many months, though!)
Everywhere I look there are happy little flower faces greeting me!
