This week…

We had no internet for five years days this week.  Well – it felt like five years.  But, we tried to take advantage of our imposed disconnect from the world. 

Our bee hive kits arrived, so we started putting them together.

Everyone is Irish

They say that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!  So, we are looking at how green things are looking around here and believe it’s true!

Here is an Irish blessing I have always loved (adapted slightly – if you know me, you know I love to edit : ))

May the road rise up to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

And the rain fall soft upon your fields

Spring Preview

A week ago, icicles dripped from the roof

mar 2014 - 4 003

But, during the past several days, we noticed signs of spring…

These pretty flowers emerged and, if you look closely, you’ll see a bee filling up with nectar…

Mr. Fifty Shades of Green Acres installed a hummingbird feeder just outside our porch.  We’re hoping the hummingbirds will soon be posing for pictures…

In other news, Mr. Fifty Shades of Green Acres has been busy…

…starting a new project (any guesses as to what this will be?)

mar 2014 - 10 005

…chasing chicks

mar 2014 - 10 002 mar 2014 - 10 003

…and even letting a chick sit on his lap…

Hmmm…I need to start paying more attention when he goes outside!…

I guess it’s ok, though, because we do get these…

They taste great and it appears they smell pretty good, too!

Hope wherever you are, you can take some time out to enjoy the day!!
