Spring is here! (Part one)

Things have been busy as usual, but I have found myself taking a step back and taking it easy over the last couple of weeks. I’m very good at being busy… Which usually results in very little actually getting done, I have found!

So here’s what’s going on at the farm:

First, we have bumblebees. Lots of bumblebees! These are enjoying pollen from some ornamental kale I planted back in 2014 (I think).

Spring is a great time to sit and enjoy your front porch…

And perfect for springtime roses! This is Mrs. Peggy Martin. A rose with a very unique history. Google it!

It’s a time for eggs of all kinds. These are bluebirds which have taken up residence in a flat of empty pots in my front yard.

And from eggs, we of course get baby birds! (Or kittens, so my daughter thought for years. I couldn’t bear to tell her otherwise!)

While you’re sitting on your front porch, you may as well catch up on some good old fashioned snail mail and then write back to your pen pal. Yes, I love to write letters!

Last of all, spring brings back the honeybees to our farm. Talk about something that works around the clock! I’ll take the hint from the bees; when you work all the time, your lifespan is a few months long. No thanks!

Now if you need me, I’ll be out in the garden, impatiently waiting for my tomatoes to grow.

    I enjoyed your post! It’s good to see someone that still corresponds via mail and not just only via email. I’ve had penpals for years but writing slacked off since everyone wishes to email. I’d love to get started writing letters again! Keep on writing!

      Thank you, Pam! I am determined to make time to write and read. I love to write letters. I’m always on the lookout for penpals. Getting mail in my mailbox makes my day!

        So true! A letter in the mail is always more fun than a bill or junk mail any day!
