Busy busy...

It has been a busy week. We had company most of the week.  Friends came out to turkey hunt.  I took their wives on tours of the hills.  We had a lot of fun.
I went exploring around our property today.  There are some old beaver dams behind our land.  It is always so peaceful there.

The pasque flowers were in full bloom.  They looked fabulous.

My bee hives didn't make it through the winter.  I'm pretty bummed about it.  I wonder if the bee keeper will have replacements.  So far all I've seen this spring is this one bumblebee.  He is going to be busy.

I planted my seedlings outside on Friday.  Everything looked so good.  Then an hour later we were hit by 'random showers."

We will see if they pull through.    

 It has been great bird watching around here.  Every morning at 6:00 am the turkeys paraded through the yard.
I had the trifecta of grosbeaks.  I was able to get photos of the rose breasted and evening grosbeaks. I also has a black headed grosbeak.
I finished my nephew's quilt tonight.  Too dark for photos.  I'll snap a few tomorrow.  It was a busy week filled with many beautiful things.

What are you seeing in your neck of the woods?  


  1. I have humming birds coming to a feeder I put up. I was surprised how fast they found it as this is our first spring here and I don't know if previous residents fed them. Slowly working in the garden with lots of ideas and long term plans.

  2. We have quite a few busy bees some hopefully pollinating strawberry flowers.
