A Little Spring Update






 



Typical spring weather here means lots of cloudy, cool days, some rain, a few warm sunny days, and this week some lows in the 20's F.  My young peach trees are in bloom, so I hope they will be fine if I cover them.  A nice day means I'm gardening or working on a project, one of which was the beginnings of a stone garden path between the tool shed and the raised beds.  Next up is to lay stone in front of the shed entrance.  With lots of help, I also have a compost bin now, built out of a few free pallets.

One warm day we hiked at the wildlife refuge looking for some signs of spring--leaves are starting to unfurl and some wild flowers were in bloom. 

The hellebores were cut Easter morning and lasted a couple weeks in the vase.  Tulips and snow in summer are in bloom and leaves are starting to open on the trees...I can't wait until all is green again.  Hope you are enjoying Spring!

  2. I love the stone pathways!! The blue sky reflected off the water is stunning and would make a lovely painting!

  4. What a wonderful surprise to see "Homespunliving" pop up on my mail box! A real treat to see and hear of your life this week. Of course, anytime you post on Instagram is lovely also.
    Yes, I imagine a few projects are getting accomplished right now. A great addition to your pathways.
    I still go back to your photos of your work room and admire all of your storage baskets. I'm still cleaning out some of my stuff, but right now I'm particularly glad I've saved stuff so that I'm able to create at this time at home!
    Take care.
