...Is just bursting in full glory here.
I took a drive to the Canadian boarder yesterday and the valley was full
of lilacs - every shade of purple and many abundant white blooms too.
Boys and mud and tractors and backpacks and hikes...
Girls and cartwheels and wagons and frogs and purring cats...
No... no official garden for me this year. However, we put up some swallow
boxes just in time to have swallows move in and start families where we
could watch them up close.
Also we have a newly-logged, sunshiny, perfect place (soon to be enclosed by fence)
to plant some fruit trees finally!
Here on the mountain violets and trillium bloom, the huckleberries are
showing promise of summer picking. Robins build nests, burn piles are lit
and fill the air with scents of wood-smoke which combine with the blooming
fragrances and make a smell like "cookies baking" (according to Bryce).
Double triple quadruple love :-)
a smidge of green lawn just big enough
three utility wagons
a motley crew of old bikes
Big brothers with kind and gentle hearts plus long legs and man-muscles taking form...
So much love.
