Goings On at The Farm

Spring has finally sprung here in Middle Tennessee.  The boys and I are taking full advantage and there has been lots of activity both inside and outside.  We celebrated National Pi Day with a delicious homemade Peanut Butter Pie, recipe and photos coming soon.

There is tons to do on The Farm.  We began prepping some flower beds by planting some hardy flowers and mulching.  It was some great family time with Gran who supervised and pronounced precisely where each new flower should go.

There has been lots of activity around our bird feeders as well.  We have loads of song birds and woodpeckers fighting for premium space on the feeders.  The boys and I identified two new bird friends, the Hairy Woodpecker and a whole herd of Cowbirds.  (Yes, they are called a herd- someone thought they were being cute.)  Birdwatching is something my Mom and I have enjoyed together since I was child.  Seeing the birds and their beauty reminds me of the verses in Matthew where Jesus reminds us not to worry, that God loves and cares for the birds and He will love and care for us too- an edict which is always easier said than done.

Mom and I have SO much inventory not listed on our Etsy sites so I snuck in some photo time yesterday.  Here is a sneak peak of a new sachet that I just love, love love. Looks like our birds provided a little inspiration.

The next few days are super busy.  There is a never ending list of things to do on The Farm.  We have more flower beds to do, a shed that must be painted before our frenemies the Carpenter Bees return.  But for today I’m going to try to remember not to worry so much, to try really hard to just be me, and to seek progress, not perfection. — Morgan ♥♥♥

 

P.S. I forgot about this special beauty.  There was a whole display of satsuma mandarins at our local Whole Foods.  They were so visually pleasing  with their leaves still attached that I put one in the basket on impulse.  Later my hubby and I split it and the taste was  sweeter than candy.  Just lovely!
