Spring has arrived here in Southern California. The air is fragrant with blossoms and everywhere there’s a constant low hum from the buzzing honey bees hard at work. Mavis, one of my hens, has gone broody, and I expect a few more will puff up and start making the constant low clucking sounds that signal a wanna-be mama.
Sprouts of potatoes, peas, beans, spinach, radishes, lettuce and broccoli are just beginning to break through the garden bed, and I’m still waiting for the carrots and beets. These are all early spring crops that do well in colder weather, though I’m happy to say it’s gloriously warm.
Here are some photos of the flowery goings-on at our homestead. Hope your spring is as fragrant and sunny as ours.
