I apologize for being absent during the month of April. My beautiful mother-in-law passed away on the 2nd, and we have been taking an internet break for a bit.
We all miss Grandma Graham very much, but we are grateful that the suffering she was experiencing has ended, and she is resting with the Lord.
Spring has been a long time coming this year, and we have more snow in the forecast! Thankfully we've been blessed with a few days of sunshine, and this morning was perfect weather for handing out May baskets to the neighbors.
We're growing fava beans for the first time, and we're grateful that they won't be bothered by the upcoming snow and cold weather~
We have a few peas started from seeds that our friend Devina sent us all the way from England; we hope they do well, and we can save a few seeds for next year.
Here is our herb garden in pots, plus a lovely cleome which we bought to attract butterflies. Anything that butterflies like and can withstand heat and drought is a plus in our book!
Our one tulip is standing tall like a lone soldier, and Tasha's turtle statue looks like it's about to enjoy a snack!
We hope that you had a wonderful April. I turned 40 on the 15th, and am looking forward to this being the best decade of my life, so far. :)
I have a lot of blog-catching up to do, but I promise I'll come to visit as soon as I can!
