Outdoor work

With the first really sunny day in a long stretch, I did get outside quite a bit yesterday.  I even took a quick Sunday Stroll through the cedar wood with my ten year old son, following him along deer trails as he ran and darted under low branches and leaped puddles.  Unfortunately, we did not have the camera with us.  

We also worked in the garden, pulling some of last year's plants that we left in last fall.  There are earthworms and tiny green weeds, both signs of spring.  We look for those signs eagerly, after such a long winter.

I also began spring cleaning the hen house with my thirteen year old son.  That project will require more work on another day.  The forecast looks hopeful so the work will continue throughout the week, though the mid-forties temperature predicted are cooler than normal.

Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you fresh air and spring green.

Spring is now here so I am sure you will have it in its full beauty soon.

It's so nice to be outside, isn't it? I like the idea of keeping ahead of the weeds and keeping my patch simple.
I hope you have a warm week, full of bird song and daffodils!

Love working outside.
Everything is surfacing here by my cottage.
Cold this morning
in the 30's.
Miss my chickens
they were a pleasure
years ago at the old farmhouse.
Enjoy this weekend.
For some reason
I feel in my heart
I really know you :)

Ernestine, Thank you for your comment. I understand that feeling of knowing each other. I feel the same. I am blessed to have met you through the blog world. I love the springtime you are sharing on your blog. We are a little behind, but you remind me that warmer days and blooms are coming soon.
