The skies are blue, the air is yellow with pollen, the bees are buzzing, and the flowers are blooming!
This time of year is a wonder: every day we notice changes when we walk out the door and around the farm. It's amazing how just last week the big tree in front was bare, and now the ground below it is full of catkins, those spikey, dusty tails that create a fluffy nature-carpet!
Our paulownia tree looks like a purple swath of paint down by the pond. It's beautiful. Yesterday our great blue heron circled around it, and then surprised us by bringing a friend. They both flew by several times as we had family brunch on the patio, and we all are hoping maybe they are a mating pair that will set up a home by the pond.
Spring has also brought lots of great times with our Farmer Artists! Just a sampling of what we've been up to:
And to think it's not even May yet!
