Seasons turn, spring's return

Today - garden soil under our fingernails again after rows of fresh new peas were dug into the ground; garlic greens and yellow crocuses found poking their way through the warming soil; a spontaneous mid-day picnic with friends; toes longingly dipped into the pond to cool off from the unseasonal heat of afternoon; reading a favourite book in the shady back porch hammock while gleeful hens hunt for bugs and preen themselves nearby; a cozy evening with family around a small bonfire with hot mugs of tea and a game of cards by candlelight as the last light of this lovely day fades...happy spring equinox from our little urban farm to you in all the places where you are.
