spring comes early to the farm







glorious glorious sunshine~








I honestly can't believe how beautiful the weather has been here in Seattle these past few days~





Things are beginning to bloom on the farm, there is growth on nearly every bush, plant, and tree~











The girls have enjoyed free-ranging in the sunshine~










Even the four new babies enjoyed the sunshine streaming in their window~










We spent most of our day outdoors, trying to get some work done, and enjoying the warmth on our faces. Free vitamin D!










Enjoy the rest of your weekend mes amies~

How beautiful! I know I don't know you but I don't like you, lol! I am in Iowa and we have another snow storm brewing tonight. I cannot believe all the green and bulbs popping up where you are. I don't even remember what grass looks like, but I think I can smell yours! Thanks for the springy pics!

Oh, such sweet beauty! I worked outside today a bit too...and actually found one itty bitty lingering chunk of snow in the nursery!

Here's to more glorious days! (and no drought for us up here in the Cascades this year!)

Why am I still looking at snow outside? It's just not fair. =( Lovely photos!

My Yellow House said...

It's hard to believe that spring is near-we have been buried in snow in the midwest for months and 5 more inches today in NE. I love seeing these pictures as it gives me some hope! I dream of a beautiful day on the farm ~

Along with being very jealous ~ I am loving these shots Kim. Your new chicks are so flipping cute I would more than likely squeeze one too hard and then....well, you know.
We still have another month and a bit of winter then I can look forward to seeing some things peek out of the ground. I almost bought some potted mini daffodils today while shopping....ahh spring ~ I am waiting for you!

Martha said...

Oh those photos are just wonderful...and those chicks...oh my how cute they are:)
