While there I took a few photos of Spring springing...
Last year we planted 3 fruit trees...the beginnings of our orchard...apple, peach and plum.
No idea which this is.
The other one is pink.
The deer pulled the last one out of the ground or knocked it over or something.
We have 2 bluebird houses. The first one has 4 eggs.
The next one has a brave and protective mama sitting on her nest.
I just stuck the lens in the hole to take this picture...no flash, didn't want to totally traumatize her.
Later, when I saw her fly away, I went back and found these 5 eggs!
9 more bluebirds coming soon!
I don't like onions all that much, but I am loving the curliness going on here.
Here's the raspberry bush.
The one we planted last year has 5 new little canes coming up.
Can you see the dirt under the fingernails? I should probably learn to use gloves,
but I really love the way the dirt feels and smells....
So, even thought it is cloudy, windy and 40 degrees, I do believe Spring is springing!
Happy Earth Day.
PS for those of you who don't know...the property where we are building our retirement home was named Shangri La Ti Da last year...our own little piece of paradise!
