JOY !

Often, in the garden, I only see all that needs to be done; the plants that need feeding, the pruning that is overdue, the weeds that must be removed before they set seed…..                                                                   P1240353

I have only to look down to experience the joy a garden can bring. These at my feet… (above)

So what if the vegetable garden is overgrown with chick weed.

I have seriously been considering getting some chickens again. They were so delightful. I loved their antics and they kept the weeds down.  Hmm…  Oh yes, I forgot the predators and the heartbreak when one is ‘lost’.

One thought on “JOY !

  1. Oh! Sandra! The joy of spring! But so much work! I know you have some help but can you really manage all that acreage? I doubt if Earle can do the magnificent vegetables and that is too much work for you..you have to play Solomen ..as for the chickens..breaks my heart..I never told kids what happened..is it very expensive to dig way down…Lay cement barriers…to keep,them safe?…enjoy what you can and eep photographing! Love, miss you….xoxo Barb
