Spring has definitely arrived on our little homestead. Zinnias are happily hanging on the back porch.
I don’t even mind that the daffodils are spent, and the pear trees are losing flowers with each day.
That just means that warmer days are finally here.
It doesn’t get much better than 78 degrees and sunny. Perfect hammock weather.
And time to plant the vegetable garden.
The herbs have awakened from their winter dormancy.
Pink petunias grace our back step.
And English lavender, too. It smells so good in the gentle breeze.
Just days ago those pear trees at the end of our drive were COVERED in white.
But I don’t mind the green. Green is more than welcome here after the long, cold winter.
I don’t ever remember it being so cold for so long here in Alabama. Record breaking cold.
Pink roses are one of my weaknesses. I never feel like I have enough of them.
And this one last pansy is holding on despite the warmth. It’ll be gone soon.
And so will these pink blooms on the tree that overhangs our pier. But, for now, I’m soaking up the goodness of Spring.
Our first one here on the homestead.
Life is good.
