Signs of Spring

SL in the hammock

This is one of the biggest reasons why I love living in Alabama.


Early figs make an appearance in January.

blue skies 

The sky is blue and the weather is often mild.

budding apple tree

The apple trees are beginning to bud.

green in the tree

Little peeks of green are tucked all around.

garden wellies

Time to break out the garden boots once again.

This weather is just right for fishing.

Ennis fishing  

A horseshoe left by the previous owner has grown into this tree.


It’s a good day to be outside.

Taking turns in the hammock.

SL looking up

Watching the birds migrate home.

Saddened that the previous inhabitant of our home grew too weak to harvest her fruit. We will reap the fruits of her labor this year, and try to honor the work that she’s done.

overwintering herbs

Happy that most of my herbs overwintered nicely.


Grateful for this still, peaceful moment in my day.


Thinking we won’t be needing kindling anymore.


And how it won’t be easy to explain that to my sweet babe.

It does look very spring-like where you are, I'm longing for it to get to that season, we've still got February to get through, that can be a bad month here.
