Spring has dawned at the farm

      It's spring at the farm. All the flowers are blooming and the chickens are laying. We were hoping that around this old homeplace we would see lots of old bulbs pop up, like daffodils. Sadly none have appeared. We think it is because the previous owner sprayed with broadleaf weed killer. However, we are seeing a few other wildflowers. Such as violets and vincas. There are also some really tiny flowers. We're not sure what they're are called but they're everywhere. We will show pictures down below. It's obviously some kind of weed plant but I think it's very cute. Please comment if you know what it is. Another thing we saw is some forsythia bushes across the creek. They are very overgrown and are in deep shade. We are planning to move them to a nice sunny spot. Also, our peach trees are blooming and the bees are busy visiting them. We don't think we will get any blooms on our apple or pear trees but maybe next year. We are really looking forward to what our first spring and summer on the farm will bring.


  1. You've inspired me to draw some peach blossoms! Those are beautiful! Can't wait to soak my feet in the creek!

    1. They are beautiful, can't wait to see you drawing, post it on our facebook page when you're finished.
