I love the spring season!
Newness abounds in many forms on the farm. From baby kittens to newly planted spring wheat turning the brown fields green. Yard work is one of the spring chores that I actually enjoy. I can basically start new every spring when I clear the rubbish and destruction from a very snowy winter. It took some doing but the flower beds and garden started to look like I could revive some perennials and make room for new starts. My constant battle is against cheatgrass and thistle, ugh, I hate weeds!
My ever evolving rock garden is finally done, for now. The lupin are starting to bloom and my old farm accents (yard art) are complete. This year I added a solar powered fountain pump to the mix.
My old wagon wheel is falling apart, but the remnants don’t look so bad on the rock path. I wish I knew the story behind it, and the paths it took so many years ago. The wagon box was made by Grandpa and placed on a set of old steel wheels we found in a junk pile. Looking for old things is one of my favorite things to do.
Now all we need is some sunshine, today it is raining and supposed to for the next few days. The wheat fields love it and so does my lawn and flower beds. My garden, it needs some sunshine!
