Spring "firsts" at the homestead

Hooray for warm weather!  These past few days have felt like spring is finally here to stay.  A few "firsts" this week, due to the balmy spring weather...rubber boots, bare feet (dipped into the cold cold pond), wild leeks, crocuses, fresh sorrel and chives from the garden, delicious greens from the outdoor cold frame, transplanting first round of seedlings for our May sale, an outdoor picnic, an outdoor supper on the patio, an outdoor tea party, reading in the hammock, a ladybug, dragonflies, first thunderstorm (and strangely also a first brief hail storm), and a pair of ducks frequenting our yard...
