What does an hour in the garden get you?

Fresh air for me?  Check!

Greens for the chickens? 

Lavender blossoms to dry?

The discovery of your first tulip sprouts J?


And finding out that you can have fresh asparagus for breakfast tomorrow J?

Big YAY and check!

And all this while I was avoiding having to come inside and cook up the 3 very large cauliflowers that I discovered  yesterday J!

Very happy day J!  Check!!

So, yesterday:

Yay - I was warm!!!

My darling Honey has been hard at work (at work and at home) and got our wood fire installed!  With the weather against him, he had to make good use of the few hours of low wind and some sunshine to get on the roof and get the flue through. (Um, yes, when we put the solar panels on the roof we forgot that we had already built a box for the flue to come through the strawbale insulation - what can I say, we are novices ;-).

Plus the many hours to build the hearth – he’s a bit of a perfectionist so there was a bit of adjusting and re-doing here and there – thanks Honey, I love it!

But, we all agree, it was well worth it J!

Oh, blueberry blossoms….

You have teased us before…

(Here’s hoping for this year at least one berry…J)
