We're having sun today for the first time in a long while. It feels great. I moved Adam's homemade Adirondack chair into the sun, and you can find me there pretty much any time I'm not doing homework (the school kind) or home work (the cooking and cleaning and errand-ing kind).
There, I chat with the chickens about the still-brown garden and watch the sparrows and chickadees dart from tree to tree. The bees tell me spring is coming, as they fly home with their leg panniers full of bright orange pollen. If you look with a honeybee's eyes, you can see spring arriving.
And of course lavender and rosemary are blooming too, and a native nightshade that I forgot to take a picture of.
Indoors, the tomatoes have begun sprouting - the first one out was 'Black Krim,' an heirloom variety, followed closely by 'Sungold,' an F1 cultivar. Now more and more are starting to poke up.
I hear spring is happening all over the midwest, so here's to sun!
