Getting the Farm on!

Spring, Spring, Spring!

Everywhere we turn there are new blooms.

Days begin outside and end outside.

We are all enjoying each other, playing outside, and checking up on all that is growing!Kale! Lettuce!
New mulch, plants from house #1, boys enjoying their Daddy!
Peach blossoms...thoughts of mouth-watering fruit in the fall!
Dogwoods, gracefully dancing in the wind like ballerinas. What is not to love about this delicate tree.
Apple blossoms, maybe this year it will actually produce! We can hope!
Figs anyone? Already showing themselves...we need favorite recipes if anyone has one!
Swing set with two trellis for peas this spring and beans when it is too hot for peas! Clematis in the center of both already blooming. Hoping this strategy will provide a little extra shade for the kiddos when we are working in the garden.
Boys, still enjoying the giant pine tree Grandpa cut down. Daddy moved it this morning out of the front yard and into his little "man" grove fire pit area. Great climbing and imagining for the boys.
What is left of the big pine tree in the front yard...Adam trying his hand at chainsaw sculpture...I have requested a giant mushroom. It is coming along. We plan a big garden bed around it. It is so much fun having acreage to indulge in garden fantasies!

  1. Love the giant mushroom. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Nice pics to. Vivid colors. I want to eat that lettuce.

    We still have piles of snow in our leaf and branch recycling area which is of course "ClOSED TO THE PUBLIC." They hauled huge amount's of snow and left it, never "thinking" it would be an issue come spring in New England!
