So much to do but thankfully the weather has been very nice lately. It feels like we could use a little more rain already, but the soil moisture was apparently just right as the local farmers began planting corn and soybeans this weekend. Several spring flowers are already fading as we transition to warmer weather. I love the days when you start out the morning in a jacket, and end up working in a t-shirt.
The redbud trees have been beautiful this year, especially with a few weeks of cooler weather. But the vibrant pink color of the flowers has begun giving way to new leaves. So one last redbud picture for the season, and a friendly bee with pollen. We hope to have lots of bees this year for the garden.
Everything is turning so green, and the grass and weeds are growing almost too fast to keep with. Well I can keep up with the grass, but the weeds usually get the best of me. After a long day, you just have to take a deep breath and enjoy the last of the day for what it is.
