I can't believe it.
It's so early but it's happening.
Nature sprinkling its magic upon us where the desert meets the forest.
Is it happening there too, where you are?
The hatter gave me a fairy piano, sweetest little thing.
And I'm collecting first roses.
I just can't believe it.
I don't know why spring always amazes me so, but it does.
I run outside every morning to see what new leaves are springing forth.
I'm having so much fun in my studio and trying to enjoy open windows and doors as much as I can before the real heat finds us. Although we are having a heat wave now, which is a bit nutty so soon.
The fruit trees are just sublime as they bloom.
Peach tree pink makes me so happy.
As wisteria blooms start to form.
It's all happening right outside the window.
I noticed yesterday that the roses that are gobbling up entire buildings in my garden are also intertwining with the wisteria. This makes my fairy tale loving heart crazy overjoyed.
What a gift.
The cool evenings, the delicious light.
The bees are in love with the plum trees right now.
They can't get enough.
Go bees go!
My babies follow me around as I do the morning and evening rounds.
They look around at butterflies and birds, just watching nature flutter about.
Our little guardian keeps watch intensely.
Making sure that no one enters his dominion.
Sometimes he won't even leave his post and join Miles and I roaming the garden.
He just sits on the top front porch stairs, looking.
Ready to pounce.
But Miles and I are too bewitched by pink fruit blossoms and winding wisteria to worry.
We leave that up to our Matty protector.
Oh and did I mention the tiny clusters of roses?
I love love love these beautiful days.
But I said that already didn't it?
As the day winds down I follow the garden path.
Sniffing apricot blossoms.
Their always familiar sugar and milk scent activates my memory bank.
Golden hour sweeps in...
And as everything glows I cozy back up in my studio.
Enjoying it all, just like the bunnies and critters in my new favorite chocolate tin are.
I've been going to and fro, doing so many things lately.
I've been having fun decorating in the city a bit and working on some art here in the country.
I'm thinking about giving the country pad a facelift too.
I always want to keep this homebase no matter what, and enjoy it, so it's important to give it some love.
The garden is calling my name again, tending garden is taking center stage.
Our winters are so short, but I did get a nice little break from heat and early morning.
Time to plunge in again.
The quail are having babies and the bees are buzzing like mad.
Nature knows what to do and when, amazing.
I so hope you are having lovely days out there.
I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings in the garden.
The gophers did a number on some rose bushes so I'm hoping and praying they make it.
I moved them to pots and baby them like mad.
I check them several times a day to see if there is any sign of life.
I do see little red nubs forming, I may faint from joy if all works out.
I've invested in ever so many giant pots and some of the other rose bushes I saved are doing incredibly.
Spring, what a time.
We are so lucky to have these things called seasons.
Fill me in on your first days of March, oh and, welcome March!
See ya soon,
