Yesterday was a wonderful spring day to enjoy nature. We took a walk along Big Creek and you can tell from all the leaves, trees, and random children’s playground equipment scattered throughout the forest that last week’s rains caused the creek to swell quite a few feet above the banks.
I’m also amazed to see what is still coming up around this yard. I haven’t done much with it because we should be moving to our new homestead very soon, but there are a lot of volunteers — kale, tomatoes, cilantro, and some greens that have returned. I’ll try to cut back on the number of tomatoes so there are a few strong ones growing for whoever moves in next. There are also many lovely flowers coming along.
Ah, Spring. What’s happening where you are?
P.S. I saved a BUNCH of columbine seeds awhile back (the purple flower above – it’s an heirloom in our family!). If you’d like some, leave a comment and I can mail out packets to 3 or 4 of you! First come, first served!
