Wild Hyacinth in bloom. Oooooo, we love this plant and so do the bees!
Homemade rhubarb pies with our own rhubarb straight from the garden made us sit down, savor and listen to all the spring song. (Thanks to Emily Eby for the happiest rhubarb plants EVER.)
Spinach, peas (almost), cilantro, chard, and asparagus are all feeding us daily. What a gift to walk to our little vegetable garden and harvest nutrient dense, chemical free food and to recognize the true miracle of seeds.
Aster and Fern love to hang right outside our library/dining room door waiting for treats and they are so excited for....
Steve, again - THE superstar - dug a 12" trench around the whole shebang and buried the fence. This aviary is so safe and we are thrilled.
The girls love to free range, but will love their new protection when we are gone too.
Ivy, Eby, Aster:
Steve is the snake man this spring, finding them everywhere and we completely lucked out when he found this mating ball of Garter Snakes. They no doubt overwintered in this rotting log and we found ourselves captivated by this whole process.
Our new vernal pool filled back up with this rain after two fill-ups with our well (that's how dry we are in north-central Ohio in May). This new rain prompted more amphibians to move and we are so excited to show you...
we have our first Gray Treefrog (most likely) or Spring Peeper eggs in this pool. YES! It worked friends! Refrog America! That's where it's at in our hearts right now. Deep, profound gratitude for this planet finds us daily. You?
