Taking time to enjoy the day ...

No matter how hard I try to schedule my time, life always seems to have other plans for my days. I have been trying to write some posts, build the duck house, and complete a whole list of things, but my business has been extremely busy and we have been completely consumed by the garden project, both of which I am definitely not complaining about!

Most of the seeds have now been started and the seedlings are growing like crazy now that the warmer weather that has finally arrived. There are plenty of photo opportunities with the all the plants springing to life the greenhouse, so I took some time out of my busy day to head outside with my camera!

Romaine lettuce.
Marigolds, starting to flower!
Cucumber seedlings.
Basil - I wish you could smell it!
More peppers!
Today was sunny, warm, and in the 70's!
The ducks were happy that I took the time to cleaned and re-fill their pool.
I sat and watched as they took turns bathing before drying off and taking a nap in the sunshine!

Sometimes it's important to stop worrying about the things that need to get done
and just take time to get outside and enjoy the day!



  1. Loved the seedling photos and the ducks were totally happy campers...sounds like a great day!

    1. Thanks! It was definitely worth taking time off to get outside.

  2. Everything looks great, especially that basil. It is just picture perfect. Love the ducks splashing in the pool! Looks like they had fun :)

    1. The seedlings have been growing like crazy with the warmer weather, it seems like they double in size overnight!

  3. Lovely photos! I am planting my cucumbers tomorrow and am so excited, but also a bit sad that this is the last batch of indoor seed-starting. I do love seeds.

    Thank you for your posts, they are so encouraging!

    1. Thanks! I do miss the seed-starting process, but it is also exciting watching the seedlings grow. It always amazes me how such a tiny seed can grow into a large plant and produce food! I love the whole process from starting the seeds to saving them at the end of the season!

      Thanks for reading!
