The Time Of The Singing Of the Birds Has Come!

Spring is finally here!

Went out to water my little orchard today and to my surprise the cherry and pear trees have leafed out and my apples and peaches are flowering.  The smell of spring is in the air and my spirit is lifted!  I always love spring and the promise of new life spring out of seemingly dead things.

Lots of work to do in the garden this weekend...finish planting my onion sets, build a new raised bed and construct a fence to keep the chickens out of the cabbages--they have eaten them all to the ground one too many times!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. So fun for you! I wish spring would visit me too! i can't wait! Happy Day!

  2. We must be on the same wavelength. But, who couldn't celebrate spring in the garden!

  3. Caroline, wonderful blog! So glad you found Farm Friend Friday. Great header too. Can’t wait to read more. Your coop looks so great from that picture on your sidebar.

  4. Caroline, you should do a post sometime on how to make a raised bed. I haven't done this before and am planning on it this year. I also have two holes dug and Ben and I are going to Bakers to get fruit trees today!

  5. Lovin' that first pic! We're quite a way behind you for spring but looking forward to it-enjoy:@)

  6. Even though our overnight temps have dipped back down to 30 degrees here in the Pacific Northwest, Spring is here as green emerges throughout the garden.

    PS: Love your eggs!
