November Hill farm journal, 208

 The front garden bed is doing its amazing first wave of spring show right now:

My viburnums are all leafed out!

We’ve had a swarm move into our empty honeybee hive.

We’re planting the vegetable beds.

Someone dear is learning to love our other dear ones.

Life is being challenging in a lot of ways right now, but the farm and its routines, its joys and beauties, keeps us going. 

And might I note that we looked at a farm we wanted to make an offer on and then learned that its HOA did not allow donkeys! Never mind, we said, noting that they are missing out to prohibit such gentle, loving creatures.

Love the gardens and the Bunny sculpture. It's very heartwarming to see little ones getting acquainted with the equines isn't it. I love when the grand kids come and interact with the herd. AND how could a place not allow donkeys! You're right they don't know what they're missing out on.

I love the red-and-yellow rocket-flowers! :)

The native plant beds at November Hill are better and better each year.
