I’ve been waiting for a certain moment ever since they planted the Winter wheat in the fields around our house last Fall. I love how something different is planted each year and it completely changes the landscape for that Summer. The special thing about having a wheat field behind your house is that it’s the very first thing to show a hint of green in the Spring. Even when the lawns are all yellow still, as soon as there’s a little warmth and a little rain, the fields just get washed in a bright fresh green.
Can you see it starting out there, beside the barn?
We had a rainy day on Monday. It started out brown and yellow and by the time I was out walking this guy after dinner,
everything was starting to go Springy green!
After this Winter, I appreciate a little Springy green more than ever. I thought you might too. 🙂
Of course, now it’s Friday and it’s been raining for 5 days straight, so everything is even greener and that creek is full to the brim.
The old falling down barn. You can see where the rain was hitting it still.
All this wind and rain has that barn shedding barn wood like crazy. I’ve got a great project for that to show you soon!
The back of our house. So much to do here, but I still think it’s pretty cute! Hopefully this will make a great “before” picture for all of our outdoor projects this Summer.
That’s what’s going on around here right now! It feels like Monday was finally the first “real” day of Spring. It’s back to windy and cold right now, but at least it’s green!
Hope wherever you are, Spring’s looking a little further ahead for you!
