It seems like it's been a long time coming
but I think spring is finally physically here.
It has certainly been a long
winter here in our part of Kansas
and I know we're not the only ones
to feel that way.
Yesterday afternoon and again this morning
I took a few photo's around the farm.
I'm afraid there's only a few areas
that look good right now as we have SO
many projects on the go so please excuse
all the extra fences and dirt piles.
Hopefully we'll get most of them done
as soon as we're done the
The Day Lilies are growing nicely
The birds are building nests in the
I'll be keeping my fingers crossed
that we don't get the 30 degree
temps that they're predicting
Sure don't want these tender
Lilac blossoms to freeze!
The south pasture (left) is just starting to turn
green and you can see the Lilac grove
on the right just starting to bud out.
This year I'm planting grass in the middle
of the lane. Last year we had to dig
a trench for the water line so
lost that lovely little grassy lane
onto the farm
The neighbors winter wheat
looks beautiful and green
It was time to change out the winter

I was hoping to paint the house before the
Lilacs bloom but I'm not sure we'll have
time. I'm not giving up hope yet though ;)
Straight ahead is where that 40'X180'
building came down.
Before then you couldn't see all the
way out into the back fields.
Mr Fixit and his brother just got finished
burying the concrete foundation walls
so now that dirt has to be spread out
evenly. The concrete pad you see there
was going to be buried until I had the
wonderful ;) idea to put in a pond.
Now the plan is to build a little shed
out there complete with covered porch
and rocking chairs and a pergola
with Wisteria or grapes on it
that will eventually look out over a farm pond.
I like my idea better don't you!
The grass we planted after trenching and
putting in the water lines is doing better
than the original grass.
These pictures were taken this morning.
If the building was still there you'd never see
the cows with their calves.
These babies are just a few days old.
Just another reason I'm so glad
we moved to the country.
I hope you have a WONDERFUL day!
