March Regeneration

As we come to the end of the Biblical year, we watch the beginning of a new year’s growth. The grass is green, the trees are blooming, and flowers spring up from the earth. The bees are buzzing, the ants have returned to our kitchen sink, and the earthworms are to be found just below the surface of the ground.

We have been sowing seed in the greenhouse, with the goal of opening for business in mid-April. We’ve planted peas, garlic, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries, and gladiolus bulbs out in the back garden. Everything is ready for Spring planting when the time comes.

I have been working on editing and rewriting something that I had started during Unleavened Bread of 2010. It was one of those “I probably should get this done, but never really got farther than that” projects. So, I’m trying to finish it. Hopefully, it’ll be done so that I can post it before Pesach, seeing as that is what the article pertains to. We’ll see what happens.

I have started making cards to sell up at the local florist shop. She doesn’t get much walk-in business, but at least it’s a starting place. I’d really like to make something of this, but I’m not exactly sure what to do. I’m still looking at my options.

The pear tree by the house was the first thing to begin blooming and I got some really great photos. Here’s a few of my favorites so far.




This is one of the Peonies that have started to come up in the front yard.


This is of the peach blossoms in the orchard.




Here’s a local sky scape. This was something that I did a few weeks ago. I stopped by the side of the road to get it… and met the sheriff as he was driving by. It was kind of interesting that the next day, for a totally unrelated reason, we met his sister. Small town… Anyway…


I saw this earlier while browsing It’s not far off. Smile


Someone’s profile photo... I thought it was funny. Smile


Yesterday I started working with one of the geldings. He learned my directions on the ground pretty quick, so I decided to see what he would do with me on his back. I probably rode him for ten or twenty minutes before he acted like he was irritated. Eventually he rolled over, and Dad said it was time to be done anyhow, so I quit. That definitely went better than I had anticipated, and didn’t take nearly so long as I had thought it would. I don’t think I’ll be getting up on his back again, though. Not until I can deal with his rolling maneuver. I don’t want him to hurt somebody… Nope, standing flat on the ground sounds just fine for now. Smile

I guess that’s it for now. This post is long enough. Smile Have a great end of the week!


  1. Those pear & peach blossoms are SO beautiful!

  2. The pear tree looks like ropes of garland. Ours just started blooming this week and they smell wonderful. I love seeing the pictures you share. I eagerly anticipate hearing that your cards turn out to be a success.
