Morning From My Porch








I spent three years living on a 130+ acre farm. About 80 of those acres were farmed organically--alfalfa, sorghum, and vegetables. The rest of the land was wooded hills, ravines, and river frontage. I've been missing the farm lately, though lovely mornings like this chase the longing away. My current home isn't as middle-of-nowhere as the farm, but it's far enough from town to be peaceful.

It feels and looks more like April than February. The spring-like weather has me antsy to start the garden. The good news is I've an open invitation to harvest as much from the farm as I'd like over the growing season. On the other hand...I still want my own big garden.

I'm glad I thought to take the picture. Usually I think of it after the opportunity is gone.

It's been a weird winter--relative warmth and much rain. Others are wishing for snow. I stick my fingers in my ears and say "La-la-la-la-la" until they stop saying the s-word.

It was. It didn't last long--I'm not close enough to a river bottom--but it brought me joy all day.

Oh, oh, oh. Suddenly I'm so homesick. Thank you.
