spring is coming!

As I walk around the farm, it is obvious that spring is coming. Even thought he weather belies the fact, the few blooms and green leaves unfurling bear testament to the fact that spring is coming. According to the calendar, spring began almost a week ago, and so I suppose I should say spring is here. However, it is still cold, and we still have a fire in the wood stove, I am still wearing thick, soft sweaters and walking around the house clutching a warm cup of coffee for warmth. The calendar says spring, my surroundings still scream "WINTER!" I had wanted to post some pictures of our quince trees beginning to bloom. They are such pretty little trees, with creamy white blossoms. However, we have had rain all week, and I am not sure how waterproof my camera is. As soon as we have a sunny day, I will put Stuart in the wagon, pack a lunch, have the girls put on their wellies, and take a nice long walk around the farm. So! Stay tuned for pictures of spring (and some pretty cute kids) on Fordyce farm!


  1. I am looking forward to seeing your farm. I have always wanted to visit Oregon. My husband has an aunt that lives there and she loves it! Hope spring finds you soon, although I wouldn't have minded a little more winter here. I need to tackle paper work, but there is now so much that needs to be done outside! Have a great weekend.

  2. It would be fun to have you visit our farm! Until then, I will try to keep you supplied with pictures. One nice thing about our long winters is that we do have plenty of time to do indoor work before the season begins! Enjoy your beautiful warmth for me!
