Good Evening everyone..
Don't you just love Spring days?
It doesn't matter to me whether they are rainy or sunny really..
I just love them anyway..
Everything is turning green and coming into blossom..
Outside on the deck the apple blossoms will soon be fragrant and their snow like petals will be everywhere..
The clothes line is always in use and Terry is busy with his little tractor again..
Cleaning up the orchard and getting the garden ready..
As you can tell he enjoys this kind of work.. grin..
Nice to have a happy man, eh!
We are working away on our taxes but we keep taking breaks to do something else.. smile..
There is just so much to do on a Spring day..
I am in the process of making dandelion jelly again for the shop..
It sells really well and is so good for you, of course..
It took several hours just to get the petals chopped of and now they are soaking to make a tea for tomorrow to turn into a batch of jelly..
Well, four batches to be accurate.. smile..
You can find the recipe HERE..
The violet oil is already, too..
I need to grate up some beeswax and get that little job finished as well..
While I was at it I decided to once again use my flower press..
I have been doing this since my older kids were young..
It must be 30 years since my first little violet picture.. smile..
Then of course, there are my herbs..
One of my great loves..
Today my special treat was a glass of tomato juice with a lovage straw in it..
It tastes delicious..
I have a whole crate of herbs to plant at my shop..
They were on special so we decided to get them and will take the load down next time and get them into the ground..
I noticed that my lovage came up again down there but it is not very big yet..
The plant here grows at least 5 or 6 feet tall..
I hope I get time to make some more pickles..
They were so different..
We had a tasty chowder made with the lobster which was left over from our little feast the other day.. smile..
Flavored with some dill..
Making some homemade bread and giving away a loaf.. smile.
All in all a busy day but a joyful one..
Thank you, sweet Lord..
I just wanted to tell you all how much I have been appreciating all of your sweet comments, lately..
I am glad you enjoyed my little story about the sweet couple in the last post.. smile..
Notice one of the comments where a lady actually knew these folks..
I think I know who left the comment but am not sure..
If you ever leave me a note this way please let me know some how who you are..
An email or something.. ok?
You are an awesome bunch of sweet ladies and I thank you for taking the time to drop by and then leaving me a comment..
I am trying to respond to each right on the blog..
It really does make blogging much more interesting..
Take care, now..
