The days are growing longer and warmer oh so slowly! The garden is beginning to shoot out, flowers blooming. Everyone is looking to be outside, much to my delight!
The Almond trees are all beginning to bloom.
All sorts of bulbs are popping up, we have a lovely patch of daffodils.
The tree is loaded with lemons! Lemon butter and lemon curd to come soon.
The boys and I planted some spinach tonight in the raised bed, dug in some organic matter to enrich the soil. We cleared out some borage and comfrey and transplanted it in the garden. The kale has been badly eaten, but hopefully it will bounce back. Coriander is looking great, parsley is busting out of the pot. Some herbs are frost burnt and I shuffled a few pots about into different positions to see if they would be happier, but as the sun comes out they will begin to bounce back.
Here is my night, completely un-filtered. Sometimes I think we are tempted to only put forward the best of our lives, so this is me, being real. There are dishes in the sink, mess on the bench and todays lunchboxes cheerfully dumped waiting to be tended too. The wood fire is crackling away and it needs a good sweep. Clean washing waiting patiently to be folded, table loaded with books and study stuff. Is it perfect? Nope. Is it Pinterest worthy? HA!. But its real, Its our life. A home is for living in, friends are always welcome. Clear a spot, grab a hot cuppa and settle on in for a good yarn!
