Spring Time On The Farm

 
Spring Time is coming down on the farm!  The trees are producing tiny little buds and little sprigs of grass are poking through looking for sunshine. 
 
Love is in the air as the birds are once again looking for little tidbits to make a new little place to feather a nest.  Lots of new little baby calves are playing in the fields as their momma's keep an ever watchful eye.
 
Spring days with scattered rainfalls are so sweet smelling and bring back memories of childhood as it falls across the prairie. The ponds turn a deep rusty red as the Oklahoma red dirt stirs up the water. 
 
Soon it will be time to help with the planting of a big garden that mom and dad have planned.  Seeds have been started and are keeping warm inside a little greenhouse built by dad.  Sweet onions, lots of varieties of tomatoes, squash, green beans, peas, watermelon, corn, and cantaloupe to name a few!
 
Yes, Spring Time is coming down on the farm.
 
I've been playing with the needle punch and valdani threads this one was worked up with soft spring colors in the perle #5's. 
 
A small booklet of the seasons on the farm is in the works....
 
With spring coming really soon....the yard is already asking for a trim!  It will be a busy time for
us this Spring but I don't mind :)
 
Happy Trails....Ginger
