Around the Homestead

Well sweet friends, it has been quite some time, hasn't it? I must admit that blogging is not currently at the top of my priority list, though I'd like it to fall back into the rotation.  So today, as I sit in the waiting room while one of my children has a dental appointment, I'll give a photo update of the last few months around the homestead.  Sound good?

My sweet boy turned two.  TWO!

Trampoline bliss has returned!

Our well has failed (again) and been fixed.  Once and for all.... We hope. 

A tiny office/art studio nears completion!

And the new mobile chicken palace approaches completion and its maiden voyage as well!

An enthusiastic and fascinated little guy I know has very much enjoyed all the construction going on around these parts.

Bees are flying!  And collecting!  And pollinating! 



Elder Berry

Big Leaf Maple
Trees are blooming all over the homestead!

Sun showers are a regular thing these days and make the tulips sparkle like jewels....

The pasture is growing strong!  It's knee-high to some, and chest high to others.

Strawberry blossoms


keeper onions

snap peas

shelling peas


butterhead lettuce

red huckleberries




And the gardens are breaking dormancy, sprouting and growing!  Hooray!

I hope that wherever you are life is treating you well, your hearts are full of love and your days full of smiles.  I also hope that you enjoyed this update of life on our little homestead.  Blessings!
