....there is the joy of having our four year old grandson with us! He says things like, "Come on Grandpa, lets go find a crawdad!" And, they do just that. We have a small creek adjacent to our place and it's just the sort of creek that a little boy likes to tramp around in.
We come upon the Rhododendron. It is a 45 year old plant and huge.
Professor always comes to the camera and I can't resist!
We have not weeded our rock area but it looks pretty good anyway! The sticks in the foreground are a maple tree that came from seed. We haven't the heart to take it out. It will become large so that must be considered.
In April I planted these strawberries and they were mostly root at the time. We didn't lose one and it looks like we'll have some fruit this year!
Do you see that little ground squirrel in the center of the picture? He makes more mess than three gophers! His lifespan may be limited if he manages to get caught! This kind of squirrel makes holes in the ground, lives in the ground and tunnels all over the lawn. Not a good thing!
We, like many of you, have difficult things in our lives. We take each day as it comes and are grateful for the simple things, like playing with our grandkids, spending time with the goats, cat and chickens. Growing a garden and watching fruit come on is a seasonal delight!
What kinds of simple things do you enjoy?
