welcome Spring!

it's here... the birds are chirping, the air is a little cool, the sky is oh so blue... welcome Spring! welcome warm sunny days planting little seedlings, welcome picking vegetables at the farm, welcome late nights spent in the garden eating dinner by candle light and enjoying families togetherness and a little wine.....

how cute is she!!! we love to take our girls here every week usually... teaches them that vegetables come from our earth... we have to be kind to the earth so that we can have tasty veggies!

working hard in the fresh air... what a life!

even our little pumpkin loves to tramps her way through the fields ... getting nice and dirty and feeling the soil in between her little fingers... and tasting a bit too.... :-)

ahhhh... so many greens!

I love how she picks me flowers every day... it warms my heart so! always stopping and taking her time in this life... always seeing the pinks and purples our mother has made for us... always thinking of me and knowing how happy it makes me to get a fist full of the loveliest weeds a mother could ask for... love it when the roots are attached and dirt is falling off... reminds me when I was a girl and would go for bike rides with my Daddy and feed the ducks... would always find some flowers for my Mama too!

off to Farm and Garden with Farmor & Farfar (grandma & grandpa) for some herbs, veggies, and flowers for our spring garden... so inspired now after being at the farm! They always find something to smuggle back to Sweden with them... this year... a jasmine plant! crazy! hahaha!

and finally... what life is all about.... breaking bread with family and friends at a big table... inside our home or out in our garden... life is brilliantly a circle of laughter and candle lights... reflecting on our past and living in the moment of love with each other!

come enjoy our garden sometime... with the warm returning... our bar-b-q is full of coals and the table is always set...
