it has been but a blink of the eye and now it's going.
so we bid it goodbye, or as they say in france, bon au revoir.
all things being said i am glad to welcome april.
it is the month of easter, it is the month of major planting
here at dash home farm. we will be putting all veggies in the ground
come the 22 of april. the wild flowers will also be planted around
that same time. still there is some preparation being done...
...when the weather cooperates.
mr. cardinal sits in the high branches and declares his love very vocally.
the cherries are almost finished blooming...it comes and goes so fast.
i thought i would share it...mine isn't nearly this big...and
mr. goldfinch is happily spying the niger seed from the iron gate.
panies are blooming in regal purple.
red clover covers a great deal of the open fields...
they say red but it looks purple en mass.
i re potted it for now until i find it's permanent home...which could require
a lot of work...more tilling in the front gated area.
at the farm...some like the idea and others think it is silly.
i am not planning on planting through it like some suggest.
it's just here temporarily until i can sow the wildflower seeds.to keep the weeds at bay.
but the birds are having a walk about on it...tiny footprints
in a photo taken by abbey.
***as with any of my photos***
frizzle sizzle pansies are doing well.
the sun is setting on the last day of march
and i am "dreaming of april".
it will be a good month to be in the garden...to watch new things
being planted...to anticipate new growth from the ground and enjoy
