Today is bright and beautiful. Our thermometer in the sun is reading mid-50s. It definitely is beginning to feel like spring. It can't come soon enough!
We started our flower planters yesterday in anticipation for the first day of spring. Our herbs, which we started little over a week ago, are already peeking their green and white sprigs up out of their pots. Hopefully, it won't be long before we'll be able to place them outdoors.
We're growing thyme, cilantro, and basil this year. We'll probably be adding more to that list, too. For flowers, we planted lavender, sweet peas, some kind of English bell flowers, and some wild flowers. We'll probably be putting these up in the planter behind the barn, where the goats will stare longingly at the blooms from their fence.
It's been a really wet thaw this year, probably because of the great snowfall we endured over those long winter months. Large swaths of our land are currently underwater.
But soon, the ground will be dry. Soon.
