Spring Starts on the Farm

The spring behind the barn

"The spring has sprung, the grass has ris', I wonder where the flowers is.... " (Haydn)

The snow has gone, hopefully for good for this season!

There are no leaves on the trees, but the grass is just starting to green up.  

Th trees look so pretty reflecting off the pond.

This is a dead apple tree stump that still resides in the middle of the children's play field.  They worked on removing it and burning the stump today.

This spring we took some pallets and made a mulch pile where it is not visible from the house.

This is where the garden will go very soon.

Last year we had daffodils on the first day of spring.  This year the green tops are just bursting through and it is April 9th already.  They (whoever 'they' are) say that spring is 3 weeks behind this year.

I was excited to see my honey berry bushes budding out.  I had transplanted them from the old house and was concerned that they would survive the very cold winter.  They are looking healthy.  Yes!!!

Here is the view from the house towards the back. Green is my favorite color and I am really happy to see its return!
