My favorite little pixie

my favorite little pixie, originally uploaded by maggies farm.

We've been spending a lot of time playing in the woods lately, especially on the warmer days. Today isn't that warm and I'm stuck inside cataloguing photos and working.

This afternoon we'll be planting peas and some lettuce. It's also time to set up the growing shelves and string up the lights to start all the tomatoes, peppers and other goodies that will go out when the soil and air are warm enough.

I'm being cautious this year. Last spring taught us what mother nature is capable of tossing our way. Here's to keeping fingers crossed and row covers ready at a moment's notice. There is already a stack of fleece blankets ready to cover the young fruit trees.

For now we'll enjoy the last brisk days of winter and look forward to spring.


  1. Isn't this time of year funny? I can fool myself into feeling its late fall. In late fall I can fool myself into thinking it's early spring.

  2. I know what you mean. It's those tricky times of change. I think they are my favorite. You never know what you are going to see, or what's around the corner.

  3. Gorgeous pic! Glad you all are enjoying the coming of Spring! We have about another month of snow and cold up here .... but it's a little warmer. Keep up the great blogging - I love the flora pics!

  4. Thanks city mouse! It will probably snow again here as well. The mountains are fickle...
