April has stirred the garden to life and I wanted to share some of those signs of beauty with you this morning. Of course there is a lot to be done this season, but this moment in time reminds me that there is a lot to cherish as well.
The ornamental Bleeding Heart along the north side of our house is one of the only blooming plants in that area. It’s protected from the chicken coop and is a surprising burst of color in an otherwise shady spot.
The asian persimmon right outside Juniper’s nursery window is already leafing out. My eyes are glued to it daily waiting for the inconspicuous green flowers to emerge. We got our first fruit last year and I’m hoping for more this season.
What is blooming or setting fruit on your homestead? Every little flower or green fruit seems to be a whisper of encouragement for the growing season ahead of us!
