It doesn’t ever seem like we have a winter where we live. We still have flowers blooming, peppers growing, life still in our garden. I took an extra second today to just walk around our yard and saw all this life. I get so busy doing stuff inside the house that I forget to stop and soak in outside. Well today I soaked it in and man, I love what surrounds me. We are hoping to share some exciting gardening posts soon. We are gearing up for baby chicks here over the next couple of weeks. That means reconfiguring our whole garden to make room. Which is super exciting and so overwhelming in the same breath. We have a fence to break down (oh and by we I mean my husband, don’t worry hunny I’m giving you total credit here) planters to move, seeds to buy, and chickens to love. We are planning on getting four hens, two Rhode Island Reds and two Barred Plymouth Rock. We have been waiting so long for this step in our journey, so stay tuned for all that fun stuff. Here I just wanted to share a few things happening in the garden right now. To share pure peace that surrounds us.
A peach tree with so many beautiful baby buds.
Goji berry bush thriving.
Yellow yarrow blooming delicate flowers already.
White yarrow seedling.
Peppermint peaking through.
Lavender that is just loving life.
Pineapple sage that has the most vibrant red flowers.
Beets that have the most perfect looking leaves.
Chard that looks like it will melt in your mouth.
Delicate little kale leaves.
Pineapple strawberries that lay untouched.
Beautiful succulent flowers.
There is peace that surrounds you. You just have to take the time to stop and soak it in. Everyday I look out of my windows and see the garden but today I stopped marveled. I marveled at the life and beauty that surrrounds my family. I felt the peace that it exudes. There is nothing better.
