Spring has finally sprung on the farm! Although I’m a real snow-lover, as most of you know, I’ve been waiting and waiting for spring on the farm!
The last time we were down, we ended up having a real weird streak of weather and it turned out being negative twenty-four degrees while we were there! Like, what the heck?!!
This last weekend when we were down, however, ended up being just gorgeous! The Easter bunny even came for a visit!
One of my favorite things to do when I’m at the farm is to explore and take photos while I’m doing it!
Back in the woods, the flowers weren’t quite in full bloom yet, but the May flowers were just starting to come out! I mean it’s not May yet, but I’ll take what I can get!
I don’t really remember there ever being this much foliage on the ground other years… I think it’s probably because we didn’t get very much rain or snow at all last year. In fact, last summer ended up being the driest summer since my parents have owned the farm. A lot of people’s wells dried up and the crops definitely weren’t great. The water level seems to be back up to normal right now, so here’s hoping to a much better summer for the crops this year!
After digging around a little bit, I did happen upon some adder-tongue/dog-tooth violets just starting to pop up through the ground!
The wild leeks were also out! I love to sauté these guys up and put them in a real yummy leek dip that I make… One of these days I’ll get around to sharing the recipe with you!
After exploring back in the woods, I decided to do some more exploring in the barn…
It was getting kind of dark out by this time, but I still managed to get a few neat photos with the tiny bit of light that was left!
So, although I did get some good photos back in the woods and of the barn, I completely, completely forgot to take photos of my new treasures that I found… Some I brought home to add to my project pile, and some I left on the farm where they belong. I found a 1942 license plate in probably the best condition that I’ve ever found one in, a Wishing Well soda pop bottle, and a Brighton Bottling Works soda pop bottle, with the label in pristine condition! I’m always able to find bottles on my treasure hunts, but have never found one with a label in this condition before — very exciting! I can’t wait to actually share these great finds with you!
