I promise I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I have just had my head buried in book keeping. I am so weary of staring at numbers on a computer screen it feels like my eyeballs are going to fall out.
It is my own doing…I have neglected to keep my Backwoods Cottage account up to date and now that it is tax time I have to catch up and get all the entries done for the IRS. A few weeks ago it was for the Corporation accounts, that was a dilly too.
I would much rather enjoy being outdoors, walking among the flowers planted in abundance at Ironstone Winery.
Barrels and barrels filled with every imaginable spring bulb, flower and rhizome..
I love Dutch Iris’, they make such a statement planted in mass.
They have tulips in every color..
some are multi-colored
the hyacinths perfume the air
Another of dutch iris and some pansies too
This little show is just a smattering of what you can see walking among the grounds.
I am awaiting the lilacs to begin, there is a trail to walk between a row of numerous varieties, and it is heaven to walk thru and just breathe!
I will, of course, take my camera. I am too tired to do this justice but I just wanted to pipe in here. Tomorrow we go to the valley and enjoy the near 80 degree temps, it will feel like summer to me, though it was nice today in the mid-60’s here, melting the snow at a record pace.
Until we meet again..
