Today we welcomed the warmest day since last fall. We had a nice sunny warm 86 degree day. The cows enjoyed every minute basking in the sun then moving to the shade of the trees. Such a relaxing scene… Here are a few of the girls getting their beauty rest on this wonderful first taste of summer! So […]
No one can relish the signs of spring more than me. The first glint of jonquils peeking out of the soil searching for warm sun to pull them upwards is always amazing. Longer days. Warm breezes. Warmer nights. Rain Showers, Budding leaves. Light jackets. New farm babies. Flip flops. Working in garden. Preparing yard. Spring personally brings me […]
“Spring Break” is next week and I have an extremely long list of items I want to accomplish. Things like: finish trimming under the oaks, working on my new flower bed, painting the barn and well house doors and give the corral a new coat of metal paint. Fertilize and put down sticker pre-emergent. Put sulfur […]
My sweet friend was able to travel to L.A. area a few weeks ago and I don’t mind telling you that I might have been just a little jealous. While she was walking on beautiful sand in the warm weather I was sitting here freezing in icy weather. I am now “California Dreaming”. This photo will […]
Love spring gardens! Attended an event last week and they had a lovely garden. Loving the rocks used as backdrop to garden. Happy pot of flowers! Indian Blankets in a home garden. Love this. Usually just see them on the side of road as wildflowers!
Wildflowers are starting to show their amazing colors. We had three inches of rain early last week which was great. I think our flowers will start blooming the next few weeks in abundance. I love the beginning of wildflower season and the new beginning it brings us. I know, for me, spring brings me excitement and […]
If you read my blog then you know how disheartened I was last spring when we virtually had no wildflowers. This spring will be different and it looks like it might even be a GREAT wildflower season. This week our first bluebonnet appeared up on our hill. So exciting! Such a wonderful event for me. Such a sad […]
It is unusually warm today which is making me very ready for spring flowers. No wildflowers last spring which was so disappointing. I am so very hopeful that this spring we will have roadsides and fields full of pretty flowers. I am dreaming of yellows, oranges, reds, pinks, purples and whites. My camera will be […]
Today we ate Mexican food and this was the sign in front of the restaurant. Of course, we ate on the patio and it really did feel like spring! I am loving the warmer weather. It’s going to be a great spring with lots of fun adventures!
Last spring we were without any flowers. Not one wild flower anywhere. We were in the middle of a severe drought which left us with barely any green at all. This has been an extremely wet winter and it appears our spring will have an abundance of moisture also. If this happens, then we should […]
What a great weekend. Beautiful warm weather to bring on a big case of “Spring Fever”. Finally got those sages planted with a little help from my friends. Got lots of items on my to-do list accomplished. The vet came and worked on a sick goat and the Ferrier came to trim our donkey’s hooves. […]
