soup and bloom
the kids have been out of doors a lot and come up with their spring soup anyway regardless of the circumstances. one morning there was lots of chopping and cutting and stewing going on in the front of the house. of course i had to try their soup. not bad at all, though i could have done without the charcol taste, but what do i know about the taste of spring soup...
and then up in the air it has been a pretty too. the poplar tree behind the house has been in bloom for over a week, and i'm surprised that it still is, after the heavy rain two days ago. it makes me so happy and lifts my spirits high. o how nature is such a pretty thing. it's all around me and i'm thankful to be able to notice and take that much pleasure in it.
by now, even the apple tree is in bloom, not a heavy laden as last year, but i treasure each and every blossom.
