Spring has been early here, basically because we had no Winter. It's been lovely outside and I've been enjoying the days of March.
I'm riding Beau more and more, getting used to the Western tack and keeping the Dressage tack on the shelf. It involves a new way of communicating with him that is less structured and allows us both to relax more. I took a lesson from a new instructor last week and just a little made a big difference.
Here at home, the peach tree has some tiny fruit starting. The tree suffered from the Winter and I'm sure it won't produce as much as I'd like, but I'll take anything it offers.
We planted tomato plants yesterday. Judging from the lines in the garden center at Home Depot, I suspect we weren't the only ones enjoying the Spring weather.
Yes, we have almost 5 acres and I could have a much bigger garden. But I'm starting smaller with these tubs before I launch into something I can't manage. The next tub will have lettuce and a third...well, I'm still deciding.
My larger lilac bush is showing the usual glorious flowers. Again, not as many as in past years, but they are as fragrant as ever. I love love love my lilac bushes and would still love to have a few more when this drought is over.
We fired up the grill yesterday and put on some young asparagus drizzled with olive oil. Oh boy, I don't think I've ever eaten so much asparagus in one day. Don't you just love vegetables on the grill? If it's not something you've ever tried, do it this year.
I hope Spring is arriving in your area, or is showing signs of coming soon. Thanks for stopping by today!
I think it happens every Winter, the need to purge stuff. It seems we spend years collecting stuff, holding on to stuff, only to find late...
I travelled a fair amount when I was in my 30s and 40s. A lot of it was on company business and we didn't have a strict budget, so I c...
It rained and rained all day Sunday. But then Monday came 'round and we had a beautiful welcome break. I decided to drive over to th...
Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
