We had a nice rain this afternoon and more expected tomorrow. I hope this is a sign of a wet or at least average rainfall this summer.
These dianthus are new. Love the clovey scent and the blue foliage. In the past, dianthus haven't done too well in my heavy, clay soil, but I keep trying different locations hoping to find a site they can tolerate.
The crabapples are amazing this spring. The red one is just outside my kitchen window. The white is in front of the milkhouse.
It's been an outstanding year for tulips. The cold weather has kept them fresh and beautiful for weeks. I have one or two late blooming varieties yet to show.
Spent the morning rambling through the fields around my farm. This time of year, there are always interesting things along the hedgerows. Above is a wild grape leafing out. I thought the colors and textures were nice.
Soon to brighten the creek side with beautiful blooms.
Probably a robin's nest but the redwing Blackbirds were hovering in the tree above it.
Definite beaver activity. I would like to find the dam but am completely unwilling to brave the tick infested woods to search it out.
A little downey watching the dogs and myself pass.
MacDuff racing across the pasture.
"People are different on a path. On a town sidewalk strangers may make eye contact, but that's all. On a path like this they smile, say hello, and pet one another's dogs.
