it's really spring!!!
this was the sky yesterday morning - isn't it gorgeous? we had an awesome day yesterday - we started our pepper plants, planted onions, chives, carrots, kale and swiss chard! jambaloney is still filling beds and tires - poor guy - he must have shoveled 4 million wheelbarrows of dirt by now!!! we stopped work at noon to have some lunch and then went for a walk to the river. for the rest of the afternoon we read, napped and suntanned - it was a glorious day!
here's the onion and garlic bed - i left some bunching onions overwinter and we'll be eating those babies soon! i planted a bunch of garlic at the bottom of the bed and 7 more rows of onions - yummeh!
here's the carrot bed - 5 different kinds of carrots and 3 rows of each. we can't wait to start digging them out and eating them - we won't even bother to rinse the dirt off - bahahahah!
here is the sky at noonish...those clouds are so dreamy! and i wish the pics properly showed that the sky here is never just one shade of blue - it is always 3 or 4 shades of blue. Helga, hon, let's go for a walk!
let's go for a walk. ok. Helga, stop staring at the sky and come on! now we are going around the turn in the road - there's the river up ahead!
the river is so blue! and cold! that i know for sure - teehee! c'mon Helga, yer slowing us down with all of that stopping and staring - get a move on girl!
is this divine or what? i could look at this forever and never get tired!
inside our magic forest....so dreamy!
i love our trees! i love looking at the water from inside the trees - it feels like a magic, faery place! Helga - get down out of that tree before you hurt yourself!
this is where we plan to build a dock - it's perfect! and we will build our dock out of downed trees from our property and of course, with whatever junk jambaloney finds!
we get filled with such a sense of peace whenever we are down at the river.
and now, heading back out of the woods and back up the road. Helga - get down from that tree - we're heading home now!
there's our little well....it does such a great job of providing us with water! look at the sun bouncing around it! Helga - get off the well!
i hope that you all enjoyed your walk with us...i know that Helga did!
spring is really here! soon everything will be bursting with green and we will be eating fresh produce from the garden. i love days like this.
