Spring on the Farm

Winter snows are long gone and flowers are popping up all over the place here on our farm. Well established daffodils are opening bright and beautiful in our flower gardens, on the lawn, in the woods, and from under the wood pile. Johnny Jump-ups are sprouting up in unsuspecting places, too! Our ornamental gold-fish pond has been emptied and cleaned out, and we will be building a waterfall shortly to aerate it better this year. Our vegetable garden has been cleaned and prepped for May planting. Winery tours are picking up again - who wouldn't want to take a carriage ride to the winery and sit in the sun, sipping wine? Spring really does give us a sense of hope after a long hard winter. It always comes back to us, no matter what.
