Fairy houses in the nook of the great big maple, sprinkling of flowers in the new grass. Shade beginning to dapple the yard once again. Skeins of wool snuggled next to one another in a row, projects ready and waiting for time. Already a couple of weeks have gone by since these photos were taken, our property bursting with blooms and bright green. I feel like if you listen closely, you can nearly hear shoots breaking through soil, leaves fluffing out on tree limbs, everything eager to live. The weather this week has been downright hot at times. I’m trying to wrap up our school year and make garden plans, going through the kid’s closets and organizing clothes for the warm season. May and June are fun months, with some celebrations sprinkled in, and everything feels buzzing with busyness, plans, and activity. I’m trying to be gentle with myself as I try to keep the plates spinning. My mind is tired and I have a good bit of work ahead of me today, so I will leave it at that. Just wanted to pop in and say hello, and happy May.
