if i am not here you will find me on my veranda, or in the garden..
i am not able to describe how amazing the last days have been, FINALLY the spring warmth arrived and i have been staying outside from early morning until almost bedtime. this outside living makes me filled with such a deep sense of peace...of refreshment, gratitude and happiness.
on tuesday i went to visit my mother. she has started the season of working the fields now, first with preparing the soil for sowing wheat. since i knew she were working long and hard days i wanted to come to her home and make her a nice dinner and surprise her with doing some planting of new flowers outside their home. while i was outside planting i were sorrounded by wonderful and intense birdsong. my mother lives even closer to the forest than i do so it is quite a difference in which birds that one can see and hear there compared to where i live. we have of course also some of the same ones but it is always birds at her feeders that i don't have at ours.
a woodpecker were working quite closely to were i were doing the planting, what a hard worker he is! it felt quite special to spend time "together" with him...*smiling. several yellow butterflies (and one brown one) were also joining us. i had hoped to see the squirrel that is often visiting my mother's feeders but he were probably occupied with other adventures that day because i didn't see him.
