Blackberry Blooms



I checked the garden in between raindrops and discovered that my blackberries have nice sized blossoms. They are newer bushes that I planted 3 years ago. They seem to be a bit early this year, but I'm still excited!


Gardening is my passion...love the smell of fresh air, enjoy the sight of seedlings popping through the ground, and like the feel of the dirt between my fingers. How about you?

Have a pickin' cool weekend,

Nature Abounds Out Back

Can you see him? Right there behind the garlic.


Here's a little closer. All settled in. Snug as a bug in a rug.


I actually put him there after I dug him up when working in the garden. Had to relocate him so I could continue to work. 
Toads are my constant companions out in the yard and garden.

I have some new tenants in the garden this spring. Baby bunnies...happens every year.
We seem to coexist just fine. Don't have pictures of the little critters just yet.  

And speaking of babies...see these little ones? There will be more soon. Many, many more! 


Love all that nature that abounds out back. Wouldn't have it any other way!

Have a pickin' cool nature filled day,
Cindy

Rain Rain Go Away


Nothin' like a warm spring shower to freshen the air and give promise to make the earth a nice, rich green.

BUT really...a little dab will do ya...I need to get started in the garden!!!


We have had...
-Two weeks worth of daily heavy downpour
-Loud cracks of thunder at all hours sending the house cats a scattering
-Continuous flash flood warnings for the area
-And the lake out back is spilling out and over the road into the already rushing and swollen creek


This is a picture of our flooded area last year. Couldn't get a picture this year...too much rain!

It soon will be okay...I'm just waiting for the grand finale and all will be good again.


Have a pickin' cool (& dry) Monday,
Cindy

'Moving to the Country' Showcase


See these wonderful items full of good ole country charm? Well, Marcy of MyShiningStarDesigns on Etsy.com created the above showcase of items from a variety of sellers and named it "Moving to the Country'. Feel free to click on the items to take a peek.

She was kind enough to include our own primitive steel farm rake. Her inspiration for this showcase? Dreaming of a farmhouse!


A little background on Marcy...she is passionate about the things she creates and is very proud of her jewelry. She considers each piece a work of art, as individual and unique as you and me! You can find her designs on Etsy at MyShiningStarDesigns.
Thanks, Marcy!

Have a pickin' cool Monday,
Cindy

The Nose Knows

Spring is here and the nose knows it!

Signs of Spring...

The fragrance of sweet grass...


The aroma of rich dirt...


The perfume of the delicate flowers...


And the scent of fresh, clean laundry...

Yes, spring is upon us! Do ya smell it?

Have a pickin' cool day,
Cindy
