Caught In The Middle

The time of year when we have Spring one day,

 Winter the next.

We are all caught in the middle.

Just One Little Trip To The Feed Store

When we began the ‘living in the country’ adventure.

My vision included chickens and ducks.

Mama Duck had 11 little ducklings and they were the cutest little critters to watch grow up!

We don’t have ducks anymore….I won’t disturb you with the reason.

The sign at the Feed Store, reads:

“It’s chick and duckling season”!

You hear them the minute you enter the door.

The glow of heat lamps hanging over galvanized tubs of fuzzy little feathered sweetness.

How to resist?

Today I did, but I’m not promising that I can next time!

Who Can’t Wait?

The snow has melted enough to uncover grass and ground.

The edges of the raised beds are visible after months of snow cover.

I’m born and raised in Minnesota, so I do know that winter is far from over.

That doesn’t stop me from enjoying the few days,

that the melting sunshine brings the hint of spring to the garden.

27 days to spring!
