Spring has sprung here in the adobes. The bees are busy buzzing. Burying their noses in lavender, mint, roses of pink, yellow and orange, yarrow, dianthus (white and red), bleeding hearts, purple and wine irises, blooming chives and rosemary. The humming birds won't give me a break and are almost tame, and a bit demanding...little buggers. On the horizon...clematis and day lily blooms and spinach and lettuce big enough to harvest. The cosmos, pumpkins and beans are sprouting. I enjoyed the best three strawberries I've ever eaten (got 'em before the chipmunks). Privileged indeed and grateful for the beauty and bounty of this green earth.
