Spring has Sprung

It is finally showing signs of spring on the farm. Harvest was soooooooo late last year, and then it was sooooooo cold, that stuff that should have been done then, is just getting done now. "Cleaning up" the corn head is one of those tasks. That involves making sure there are no broken springs, bad sprockets or bearings, bent metal, replacing parts that need replaced.
Blah, blah, blah...
This is Jim...Ted's dad...working on some do-hickey that he took off of the corn head. Ted was busy with a salesman at the time. That's a strange thing about farming, the salesmen still tend to come to you. Anyway, I don't know who was enjoying themselves more: Jim with the corn head or Ted with the salesman. I quickly accessed the situation, and then moved on to greener pastures...I went on my first flower photo shoot of the year.

The crocus have been up, then buried under about 10 inches of snow, then uncovered again. They don't seem to mind.

Hello lovely!

Ahhhh...mellow yellow. Ok. Maybe NOT mellow.
But still quite right!

Just waiting for a bee.

Oh! Here one comes now.

The bees are back! Definitely spring!


  1. So beautiful, thanks for posting. Oh, I went out and bought the brownie pan for my daughter in law, she makes really good brownies and lasagna. Hopefully she will bring brownies for Easter.

  2. Hope she likes the pan as much as I do! Chewy edgy goodness!
