Sunday Walkabout - Pictorial

spring comes to the farm

I totally dropped the ball lately and I know there are folks wondering what's been going on here on the hill.

The short answer is "nothing new...not much...same old, same old..." And, I realize I've said that all too often.

I got distracted and my attention has been elsewhere.  But, here are some photos from April!
Spring has arrived and Market season is upon us. 

We're working on new projects and trying to work around the continual rains.

I truly hope to get back to the farm blog by the end of the month. (I must...I have even MORE photos to share!)

some days I truly love my job!

 But, until then...thanks for stopping by. I hope we can "visit" again soon.

Have a Happy Sunday!

  1. A loaf of that sourdough and a bunch of those shiny radishes on my doorstep one morning would be very welcome. Have missed you.

    1. I'd bring them to you in an instant, Pat, if I could!
      Thanks for checking in. :)

  2. The bread looks delicious and your photos are beautiful. How lovely to have so many different birds.

    1. Thank you!
      I love when the birds visit us.

  3. Your photos and your writing are just so fabulous! You really inspire me to get out and start noticing the details in my life. You seem to find so much beauty everywhere!! I am sorry to hear of your pain and hope you find ways to get relief. It makes you even more amazing to me because you don't just crawl in bed and feel sorry for yourself - you live a busy life and enjoy nature and share your beautiful thoughts and pictures! Thanks so much!

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I truly appreciate your kind words!
      I hope you'll come "visit" again.
