"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Spring's arrival on our farm

I was thrilled to see the first blossoms on our peach tree. It was a free bonus thrown in from Stark's when I placed my order three years ago. All their trees did well but the blueberries seemed not to be happy with my soil. I need to try again - we're BIG berry eaters here.

The kids seemed even more thrilled when they were able to point out the very first crocus. JACK actually got off his trike, exclaimed and kissed them the first time he noticed them!


Yes, that is a REAL chicken that welcomes you, not a statue.







(Nearly) One year later I've found this amazing barn blog and am joining in on the fun!

Standing at the welcome sign she really does look like one of those chickens from the garden shop.
What a great place to grow up and explore and have adventures.

Since I was born and raised on a farm, I appreciate the things yo shared. I love old barns. I also love flowers. In fact, I am getting out in my yard now.
