We’re in countdown to Spring mode around here lately.
The pear trees are on the verge of flowering.
The fig trees and their early buds survived our crazy, snowy weather last month.
An old pail stands ready after years of collecting figs. We’re incredibly happy to be here.
Even the plum and apple trees have sent out buds in anticipation of warmer days ahead.
My raised beds (look deep into the background) have been built and filled with composted garden soil. This hill of red clay dirt epitomizes Alabama. You can’t go very far around here without seeing some of this stuff. I love to look at it, but it doesn’t grow the best vegetables.
And here’s my sweet Sara Lynn, playing at dusk in her pajamas… just because it was a gorgeous day we didn’t want to end. I hope your weekend was as beautiful as ours! Even my husband’s tonsillectomy on Friday couldn’t keep us down. Thank God for liquid painkillers! : )
