Though the leaves on the Sugar Maples are slowly opening,
The Red Admirals have been busy finding sweet drinks from the stump of a maple that had blown over in a spring storm. Cutting is down for firewood had also supplied sustenance for the butterflies and other insects of the forest. Natures way.
The Bluebirds have nested near the garden. The Mr. is keeping a watchful eye for intruders. Taken at quite a distance, my camera does not do such a good job...awww.
The varied Iris have since been transplanted in hopes of color still, this early summer.
Mosses of the woods near the sand pit, are showing off their new growth for the GrandLoves. They are so curious.
Marsh Marigolds or Cowslips, as we called them as kids, are a ray of sunshine in the cool, dark swamp waters.
Did you know you can eat the leaves like lettuce? We used to love them in a sandwich with mayo and salt., washed of course.
A piece of green glass, perhaps a bowl or vase at one time, was unearthed while transplanting Rhubarb. It will be re-purposed in a hypertufa one day soon.
What to do with these wagon wheels and sprocket off an old caterpillar...garden art or on the wall of the barn?
They used to hang on the lean-to that was blown down by another storm a year ago. Most of the fence is gone too.
The GrandLoves making memories in their stick fort at the edge of the cabin woods has become quite the imagination brewer.
What, I'm upside over?, you say?
Who says there are no fish in a mudhole~~~as the little ones fish for Mud-Leaf Fish while their Daddy helped load some logs.
Slow but Sure, spring has kept us busy., so busy that I have barely had time to stop for a break.
The last of the first flowers of the year are fading as the new ones burst forward. Bring it on. I'll never be ready to tend all of the gardens but I will enjoy them none the less.
Love what the Lord has gifted us all with.
Do stop by in your busy week and I will try my best to do the same. Like My Man said the day we were married,
I never promised you a rose garden. He was wrong.
There have been bumps and curves, but it's been ' real.'
So it goes in every one of our busy lives.
