It has been a long winter in more ways than one… we seem to have finally found our rhythm in it and I feel hesitant to venture out (juniper breezes scare me!!) But we finally did and with this crazy warm weather we have spent a few consecutive days outside and are much better for it. The world is waking up and life is buzzing everywhere!
Winter Jasmine (Jasminium nudiflorum), always our first bloomer, followed by the over eager Apricot…
Turns out my Kale and Celery are not completely dead after all
and my trusty Chard weathered the winter just fine and is ready for a pick.
There we a few of our favorite fellows who are not buzzing as we are, so we went in to investigate.Our beautiful bees seem to have been attacked by mice!!! But the left heaps of gold behind!
A bit of honey should help with our allergies right?!
So onward we go, counting our loses and our gains and we begin again!
