-- I've made some time this week to just sit. I don't do that very often; there is so much that needs to be done, and I'm far from caught up, but after I finished milking Firefly (she's the last one in line) I just sat next to her on the milkstand and enjoyed her company, the nice weather, and the birds singing.
I've done that for a few mornings now, and in the afternoons I've taken the camera outside to shoot the butterflies on the apple blossoms. One day there were six yellow and black swallowtails fluttering around the tree at once; usually there are one or two at a time. The flowers smelled so sweet and pretty.
-- Now that spring is here I've been taking my overwintered herb pots outside during the day and bringing them back in at night. Soon they will be accustomed to their new location and I can leave them outside. I'm looking forward to getting the herb garden going again and expanding it this year. I was gifted with some new herbs this week - feverfew, peppermint and thyme, as well as some walking onions.
