Spring...



our plum tree...we're hoping for some fruit this year.

We've been rather busy cleaning the barn this weekend, it is an old building, from 1860, and not very easy to use or clean up or anything. Now we have to remove the dirt from the sheep, they've been in the barn the whole winter, so there is plenty to take out. That aches on my back and arms...but it's okay if I don't go too many hours in a row. I do get some knitting done, though-lol! I've started another pair of MayDay socks, this time for myself, using the larger size. Great pattern. The first pair I made, was sent off to niece today- it was actually her birthday today- I'm just a bit slow...

Tomorrow I'll pick up the kids after school, and drive up to my MIL, there are Canadian relatives visiting(my husbands relatives), so it would be nice to meet them .Hubby is at work, so I doubt if he'll meet them this time.

Have a nice day!

Marit - As always the scenery is so lovely. It must be such a pleasure to live in such a beautiful country.
I live out in the country but I don't have quite the lovely views that you do.
Hope you have figs.

It IS lovely around here! But right now the rain is pouring down....
The garden is still not finished-actually it's nearly not started-lol! Hubby would like to plant different trees, like peach and apricot, so maybe there will be figs too(you are meaning those dried fruits you often eat for xmas,right?)

LOL, Marit, I read plums but by the time it got here where I could post a comment it had turned into figs in my head, silly me.
Hope you have PLUMS.
