Only a few days left of my babysitting – though I hardly like that word since Nathan is not at all a baby. He’s FIVE! And we’re doing a lot of things together. Tiny Tiller’s is the class for small children at Crown Point. Miss Amy teaches them about the joys of the natural world. This photo was from a bird walk. We saw blue bird boxes and wren’s nesting as we wandered out past the bee hives and the new location for the hens. We heard a lot of bird song, even that late in the morning. Fun!
Here is the more sharply focused picture of the apple tree I promised, but of course, it’s all quite different than it was when the buds were tight and very intensely cherry pink.
One day was dry and warm enough to play a few games out on the deck, but since then it has cooled down again and rained (much needed rain!) for several days. Spring is like a baby. Every minute there are visible changes. It’s exciting, but also, almost daunting. There is so much to do, and I am so slow to accomplish things! But what a joy when I can be outside in all this beauty.
