just 23 of my favorite images from the past few busy weeks.
red: seeing the vacation house spring blooms appearing is a happy side effect of living there 2 or 3 seasons longer than we originally anticipated. it has continued to be a haven of beautiful wonders to behold, you gotta love providence.
red: last night quinn tagged along with me on a market training and tour of the farm i work for every other saturday. we were csa customers for years and have toured there several times, but never before in this early spring season. i am so glad i brought my camera along.
orange: the farm stand restaurant is another haven of beauty, with so many details creating a feast for all senses, not just the tongue.
orange: i love to be involved with this farm, because a little part of me will always be homesick for the farm i grew up on, and although it’s 3000 miles away and not a dairy, this farm has a lot of little reminders… an antique manure spreader and a silage chopper, bending like an old dinosaur reaching to munch on some of the nearby vegetation, could easily be spotted at either farm.
yellow: sunset over the apple blossoms at the vacation house.
yellow: another old farm equipment photo for my dad, i love the way there are some vivid yellow lichens growing on the hood, as if to match the truck’s original paint job.
green: farm stand in the afternoon sunlight.
green: reflection ussie.
green: even better reflection, like something out of a dream of mine.
green: i don’t even really need a special lens anymore to see hearts everywhere i go.
green: april showers.
green: lemon balm, a happy surprise growing next to my doorstep at the new dragon house.
blue: lots of happy surprises there, as we discover little secrets in every corner of the yard. my mom was reminding me that i have always loved forget-me-nots, and they were also one of nana’s favorites, which makes them extra special to have around my new home.
blue: opting out of the compost tour, he decided to chill on the flatbed truck and listen to sparkle stories.
blue: see what i mean? love is all over the place.
blue: if you have to do homework, at least you can do it outside on the front porch.
purple (and green!): one of these things is not like the others….
purple (and green!): lilacs of the dragon house. oh so happy about this.
purple (and green): these are in the stone flower bed in front of the dragon house. one more happy surprise!
vacation house… this azalea’s blooms got pinker, though i had been calling it purple. file under: red violet.
pink: vacation house apple blossoms
pink: the earliest rhodie at the dragon house is in full bloom, a lovely vanilla ice cream with a hint of strawberries.
i hope you are taking many moments to enjoy the feast for the senses spring is bringing you, wherever you may be planted!
