Blackberry Winter

Blackberries are blooming and blackberry winter came to visit yesterday.  It was rainy and cold, in the 50's, down in the 40's last night and again tonight.
Warmer tomorrow. 

Last year the blackberries bloomed and then heat and drought hit.  There was no crop.  Hopefully this year Mother Nature will take pity on the farmer, bless our crops and give us a bountiful harvest of fruits and veggies.

Rescue Iris

One of my favorite plants that Sam and I planted in our rescue garden, wild tiny, so perfect.

Stay well, keep your distance, wash your hands.

Stay Well

First apple blossom of the season!
I love the fragrance and the color.
This put a smile on my face this morning.

Stay well, be kind, wash your hands, please practice social distancing.

My beloved cousin died this evening
Covid 19

As a good friend so sadly said last week, soon the numbers will become names.

What can I say, we live in a forest, I am a tree hugger. My morning walking trail.

Be kind, stay well.

Look Up

Another busy day on the farm.  We planted two more elderberry bushes today and I worked in my flower beds out back.

But, we always take time for a walk.  Today was a good day to "look up."

Wishing you peace, kindness and good health.

Hairy Vine

This is such a strange vine growing up the side of this tree.  It looks rather hairy, bigger than my arm and almost reaches the top of the tree.  It reminds me of those that Tarzan use to swing on in the movies when we were kids.

We did our routine spring spruce up today.  Reclaimed the screened porch and moved plants to the deck, suddenly the house felt twice as big.

Be safe, be well, be kind.
