You Know that It's Spring When. . .

I loved Maggie's description of a beautiful spring day in Normandy. Paradise. While we are not yet wearing flip flops here--well some are--, the days have been sunny and a bit coolish, but we know that spring is on the way


When:

Four new baby chicks arrive.  Two Delawares, a cuckoo maran, and a dark Brahma. They are so cute. Right now they live in the Rubber Maid tub serving as a brooder with their heat lamp to keep them warm. I' will be taking their baby pictures in a few days for next week's post.

When:

There is fresh asparagus in the garden ready to picked. I missed going out today. It could be two feet tall by now tomorrow. Asparagus grows very rapidly.

When:

The Eastern Red Bud reaches full bloom, a delight for sure with daffodils dancing at her feet. Love it. 

When:

The red tulips bloom. These red flowers were planted by previous gardeners here and they great us each year. 

Yes, it is spring. 


Other moments of note for the week: 


Nathan turned eight. Look at that sweet smile. He driving grandpa's tractor.

No Photo:

Pop the Pony had surgery in a rather delicate place to have a tumor removed. The vet sent the tissue  in to be tested to see if is cancer. If so, he will receive a dose of chemotherapy that will slow the growth of the cancer. He is twenty-eight, feels good and still has a good attitude. 

And that is how you know that is Spring

Thanks for visiting.

  5. You're ahead of us with spring flowers and blossoms but if the warmer weather holds, by next week we should be enjoying them too. I hope is feeling better soon and doesn't need chemo.
    Happy Easter Ann.
