This is a mossy branch on my evergreen tree out by the barn.
I'm pretending this is a photo of some really cool underwater plant. I'm pretending I took this today with my underwater camera, while I was snorkeling and free diving in tropical waters.
There are three couples in our little group we call The Foodies, today the other two couples left for Hawaii with their kids... The Husband and I are here in the northwest. I love it that they're off making memories with their families, they're not the kind of people that do this sort of thing all the time... this vacation is a really big deal.
Late this afternoon we had a couple of drop-in guests...it was sunny and warm. We sat outside and had refreshments. It was so pretty, I said "it feels like summer", and I thought to myself...I'm really glad I'm here, right here, right now.
Today I planted sweet peas and arugula, pulled a zillion weeds, transplanted a few raspberries and mulched them with some of my own compost which looks black and rich, I love making my own compost...mostly because I know what's in it, no chemicals!
Heck...I think I'm just happy for my friends in Hawaii...I want them to have the best vacation ever, and to come back home safe, with stories to tell me.
Tomorrow I want to plant more peas...sugar snaps, maybe some radishes, lettuce, spinach, carrots, beets. I love spring in the garden, the list of chores is sometimes overwhelming but it's like a blank slate....ohhh...the possibilities.
It's all good, I'm happy, right where I am.
