Spring Beauty

Spring is such a busy time. Planting, tending, watching, breathing...every day new, air perfumed with honeysuckle. Of course, getting the garden started has taken time and energy. Finally almost everything has been planted. We've enjoyed the strawberries, early salad greens and asparagus. Peas are blooming and will be productive soon. Tomatoes, green beans, okra, squashes and peppers are growing. The maintenance phase is beginning now.

 April Awaking

Wake to sweet bird song
Bathed in honeysuckled air
Deer quietly grazing.

Bill and I took the kayaks out on Melton Hill for the first time last week. I didn't get catch any fish (not even any bites). However, the experience was a wonderful workout for body and soul. I being close the the water and bank for views that I just don't see any other way. I've shared some of my favorite pics below from the lake and from the garden.
