April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go. ~Christopher Morley, John Mistletoe
This is one of the few times during the year that I love living in Texas. Despite the wind, Spring is fabulous here and I am in love with all the green finally emerging. This is a great time for Jude as he is almost a pro at the whole walking thing and really (really, really) likes being outside. The kiddie pool (cheap, plastic, and awesome) is already full of grass clipping and crazy, makeshift toys afloat.
We have worked super hard to get something of a vegetable and herb garden started and I vow…. do you hear me?….I VOW to really put an effort into maintaining our beautiful organic veg and herbs this year. The last few years have really been a wash <insert excuses excuses excuses>. I am still determined to do buckets, containers, and raised beds since dirt here doesn’t exist. Honestly, I was shoveling up some dirt on the side of the house and came up with fully formed clay pots. It is not good dirt.
So forgive the absence as we were really enjoying the sunshine.
p.s. The above photo was taken at my parents West Texas farm. My sweet baby cherry tree was in full bloom. It was a root transplant I took from my grandmother’s cherry tree and is 3 years old. It makes my heart sing to see it thriving.
