It's arriving in its own due time, but it does say Spring on the calendar! We are now allowed to call it that. I love Spring. I think the fact that I was born in the Spring helps with that fact.
There are signs of Spring all around us. Aside from the wet, heavy snow, mud and general "slop", we have beautiful signs of Spring as well. The Robins have returned. I've seen and heard the Sandhill Cranes, today 2 pair of Snow Geese flew above me on my walk down to the river. My tom turkey is strutting his stuff and the ducks have begun to lay eggs along with an abundance of lovely chicken eggs! All wonderful signs of life, hope and things to come.

It's the little things!

I have a garden cart I bought at a garage sale probably 10 years ago and I use it every single day. I haul hay in it in the winter and I haul veggies in it in the summer. It gets a workout! Well, it fell apart on me. It didn't take any convincing for Chris to put new wood on it for me. He knows how much I use it. He even straightened the wheel he bent about 8 years ago.
It's the little things that make me happy! Here it is with new painted and oiled wood!

In the News!

I am very excited to report that we have been featured in Zone 4 magazine this issue. As a matter of fact, Serenity Sheep Farm is the centerfold! As I told them, it's the only centerfold I would ever wish to be.
I think Rilla did a lovely job telling our story. She and her husband stayed out here last summer so that she could write the article. I saw him recently and he said, "She didn't sugar-coat it. We had that much fun!" Music to my ears.
If you don't live in a zone 4 gardening area and would like to see the article, you can order it direct from them. I've already bought more issues than I care to tell you about. I had to send them to friends and family, don't you know.
Plus, the folks at Zone 4 are just awesome.
