Was finally able to go outside for a bit today. Life is springing up across the yard and trees and I feel like we all just came through a tunnel to the light of spring. I am looking forward to starting a garden if not for anything more than just companions in the sunlight. I can breathe a little today. Stress or anxiety or just bad health has made the past few months so hard but today was a welcomed calm and I took every opportunity to smile. I potted the strawberries and have broken ground around the onions. mulch to the asparagus and a few trees trimmed. Yard herbs are coming up everywhere so plantain and henbit are already on my radar. i've never been a bird person but today i was so thankful to see them dart in and out of the yard where we have been feeding the chickens. To be honest, i was thankful i was even still around to enjoy it.
