We are grateful for so many things. Here is what comes to mind from this past week:
~ discovering several tiny toads in our garden (we think they are Tiny Eastern American Toads) - this one was about the size of a quarter - we are so happy to have toads in our yard as they are an indicator of a healthful environment, and of course to help with eating garden pests, and listen to them calling to each other at night
~ lovely friends who brought over delicious homemade drinks: homemade ginger beer and elderflower-lemon verbena water kefir for us!
~ simple nourishing meals that are still being spontaneously dropped off on our doorstep by friends since the arrival of our baby
~ lots of rain so we haven't needed to water the garden at all this week
~ first calendula blossoms (I love calendula and would plant it all over the garden if I could spare the space)
~ the arrival of summer!
~ peas, peas, peas and kale, kale, kale from the garden, and garlic that's almost ready to harvest
~ finding a Black Swallowtail caterpillar in the dill patch which our family is going to watch as it hatches into a gorgeous butterfly
~ a very inspiring topbar beekeeping workshop we hosted here on Saturday
What are you grateful for this week?
