I spent the afternoon in the garden yesterday with a little friend. Earl built new raised beds for the strawberries last fall and they were absolutely filled with weeds. Since the sun was shining and it was a perfect 70 degrees outside I decided it was finally time to clean them out so we could start planting the strawberries.
I grabbed a couple hens and we set to work. They nibbled on greens and ate bugs while I pulled the weeds. I enjoyed their company as I felt the warm sun, listened to baby birds chirping in the birdhouse nearby and enjoyed the scent of lilacs and mint. Such a perfect May day!
Just a little heads up for my blog friends. Due to some new policies I'll be closing my etsy shop as of May 17. It's time to rethink where I am going with my design work anyway. It has been a hobby that turned into a little bit more and now it's time to rethink where I want to take it. This may be a very good thing in the long run and I am choosing to look at it as the kick in the pants I need to either get serious or follow other creative outlets. We will see. In the meantime, as long time friends, if you want anything from the shop I'm going to give you a coupon code for 30% off your purchase. Use code FRIENDS at check out for your discount. This is limited to stock on hand and I have been filling orders like crazy so if you want something now is the time!
Lots of changes happening around here! What's happening in your neck of the woods?
