And to be quite honest- time alone.
I plan on getting outside and working in the garden a bit, weeding, tidying, perhaps adding more leaf mulch if I can force my lazy ass to do some raking. The oak leaves are truly and finally falling as the new leaves are appearing, forcing the old ones off the limbs and to the ground.
The garden looks so beautiful right now. That mushroom compost we spread last year was absolutely the right thing to do. I've never grown collards so pretty.
The mulberries are not just leafing out but also fruiting.
And the fig leaves are beginning to come out.
The Buckeye is leafing and the bloom is there, just waiting to turn red and yellow.
And the Ashe magnolia is unfurling it's lovely leaves.
It's gray today as you can see, but cool and that will make for a good day of outside work.
The chickens are already busy with their work which is scratching and inspecting for bugs and tender shoots.
Not to mention bird seed, kicked and flicked off the feeder by the cardinals and red-winged blackbirds.
So. Yes. A day to spend at home enjoying what is here and all around me.
