So, closing has been pushed back again…to early June. We are keeping our chins up. It is spring, the weather is lovely, and everything is in bloom. Good time of year to be a bee.
the first peace rose of the summer, in full technicolor glory.
The fourth or fifth peony…
purple podded pea with pollinator (or possibly perpetrator, I will have to look this bug up). This is such a fabulous plant, I can’t say enough good things about it. You can get them from Adaptive seeds, the variety is called Sugar Magnolia.
Sugar Ann peas (these were eaten moments later).
a native pollinator checking out the chives…
This look is uniquely Katydid: a combination of “I am really sorry I dug this hole but it is for my ball please don’t take it away and have I mentioned how tasty this dirt is? Love you!”
So it is hard to be down in the mouth with all these good things happening right here in our tiny urban backyard. Oh yes, and then there is this:
Osprey was backed for the first time today! I go see her again tomorrow. I tried out some used dressage saddles this week, so I at least have some idea of what fits and why. Folks always say buying the horse is the cheap part, and they aren’t kidding! But she is worth every hard won penny….and Rachel is doing a fantastic job with her.
Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! I will be selling wine at Big Table Farm on Sunday, if you are in the area tasting wines this weekend come by!
