home and a song of spring

it is been so long since i posted little indoor vignettes of my home, it is  uncomfortable in an odd way to do so. i guess i have spent many days at home as of late, today i feel more at peace, perhaps the lack of drama or the sun and air that seems to be ringing in an early spring. i heard the song of a bird at  my window this morning, a new feathery friend in all its loveliness. last night as i fed the horses under a star filled sky an owl  made a wonderful sound as well, he did this often that is until i tried to imitate his call, he did not like it for his silence told me so. the hills  calendar is beginning to fill with so many that want to visit and my own calendar with work, workshop and holidays this is all good and needed. i have not seen k in two weeks, i miss him, soon he will be home and i will go for a long drive, yes that is what i will do.

oh one last thing, do you know if you cut up and use the greens from scallion, you can re grow them by putting the bulbs in water. the will start growing right away.

* my 86 year old neighbour loulie came over the other day to do laundry. i love folding dish towels and linens i brought her the basket the next day with a few eggs from the chickens

Dear Nadia, How lovely to catch up on several posts at once; to see the beauty inside and outside your house. Especially outside, which you describe with a faithfulness that so many photographers and writers couldn't begin to conceive. So beautiful to see the changing of a season through your eyes and words.
