We journey on through Lent...

From my daughter's sketch book.

scenes from our little greenhouse...

Spring has sprung and the greenhouse is blooming!

We will hopefully get some early cucumber and zucchini this year.

Hubby re-planted the strawberry patch yesterday. It must be done every 3 years. All the plants must be pulled, the ground weeded and the soil turned over and the strawberry plants re-planted.

Lord, may our garden bear abundant fruit to enjoy and to share.

a few favs...

Just wanted to share a couple of blogs that I have found inspiring lately...
Like Merchant Ships -thriftiness personified!
I'm new to Pioneer Woman. I love her blog! Check out the cooking section. Yum!

As we went out to get the paper this morning...
We saw this wonderful sight overhead. We tend to get lots of hot air balloons blowing by from now until late summer.

During the hot summer nights when the windows are open I have been woken up early in the morning by the sound of flames being turned up, that's how close they get. One time, several years ago, a brightly colored balloon landed in our neighborhood and the kids got to run around on it help get the air out and fold it up. Fun, fun!!

We participate in nature classes with our local homeschool group. I, ahem, I mean my daughter is learning so much (hehe). Last weeks topic was birds.
Or was it monkeys? ;)

My dd16 won an award for a piece she did last fall. This piece as well as lots of other winners from around the county are on display this month at a local art museum.

Here is a close up.

Have a great Saturday!
