Scenes From the Week


Spring break is finally upon us here at the farmette.  I thought it would never arrive.  

So, what are we up to?  Ball games,  ball practice, work for the farmer guy and I am painting.  Did I mention prepping the flower beds?  The fun, the joy, the mess.....

Also planting some tomatoes.  Transplants don't go out into the garden until after the first weekend in May.  Tomorrow the, "signs", are right for some tomato seed beds.  


The chickens have just been so snowy white and clean...and then they took a dust bath today.  GAH!  Now they are brown. 


The pear trees are starting to blossom.  


This print is from my front porch flag. 
 Finally time to fly one for spring.  


Ferns are out on the front porch, as well.  The covering protected them from the frost we had Saturday night.  



The young man of the house is having the best week of us all.  He is in New York City for several days, taking in the sights, eating great food, and generally enjoying life. 


Just what are you up to for the week?  
Do tell

  6. Bought the new Lucinda Williams CD, taking car in for service, reading George Harrison bio, doing laundry, painting 2 rooms, drinkin' java, watching my Red Sox play on the telly, viewing rain, running more errands, dreaming of two weeks away, watching some hockey, volunteering in our library, taking some photos and some other REAL boring stuff. Glad you asked?

  21. Spring just soothes the soul, doesn't it? We actually had rain last night, so we are all jumping in puddles this week, I think. Enjoy your week.

  22. Spring is wonderful, isn't it? I can't wait to plant my tomatoes - here we can usually get them outside in the second half of April. I had a clematis blooming, and then the deer came in one night and ate the blossoms. Oh well. Spring break right after Easter sounds way more sensible than the way pur school district does it here when it was the third week of March. It was a good week though, with lots of sunshine and warm temperature. We have had a cold spell since Easter with rain (yeah) and some snow in the Sierra - finally!

  24. Yay for spring!!!! I hope your son is having a fabulous time! My niece is in NYC for the last couple weeks and will be back in Wisconsin this weekend. She's been interviewing with various modeling agencies and working at the car show for one car maker. NY is the place to be!

  30. My chickens aren't so clean... to much mud around here, and lots of rain on the way. Hoping for a dry run and clean chickens in the near future.

  31. Sounds like you and the family are making the most of spring break. I recall how much I used to look forward to spring break ... and you are so right ... it seemed to take forever to arrive. And the best part ... summer is not too far away!!! :-)
