Spring is coming! I love spring. All the pretty flowers, the warmer weather that is warm yet not too hot. Everything becoming green again, and all the new life – calves, kittens, chicks, and ducklings. Right outside my bedroom window is a lovely tree – I think it is a plum tree – that has the sweetest smelling blossoms. When I open my window, the scent wafts into my room. It is simply delightful!
Right now the hyacinths and daffodils are blooming. There are lots of bulb flowers all around our yard, and they bloom in waves: first the daffodils and hyacinths, next the tulips, then the irises, and lastly the lilies. I’m afraid that this blog will be rather inundated with flower pictures over the next few months. 🙂
As for the inspiration, the other day I wanted to make something fermented. After looking at some recipes, I made a few jars of saur kraut and a blueberry/raspberry/orange fermented drink. They were both easy and didn’t take very long. I have been enjoying the drink over the past few days, and the saur kraut will be ready today. I opened the jars today, and it is starting to smell less cabbage-y and more saur kraut-like. I am getting rather excited. I hope it turns out well – I do enjoy a good saur kraut, especially with bratwurst!

I think this is called Bride’s Bouqet
The trees are budding!
I love water pictures
