Spring on the farm
I really enjoy visiting the farm in the spring. In April, I spent two weeks at the farm tending to the place while the rest of my family was away welcoming the arrival of my nephew in Germany. Spring was celebrating my nephew's arrival in its own glorious way.
Her Majesty and I walked the orchard breathing in the fragrance of apple and pear blossoms. We watched the ducks play in the water and the baby animals play in the field. On quiet afternoons, Her Majesty napped on her pillow. (Her current pillow is version two of Her Majesty's dog bed.) During Her Majesty's naps, I sewed long awaited projects, such as oven mitts, baby shoes, a cap, and pajamas.
