Spring is Here!!!!

And so the work begins.................
Hi everyone!! Just thought I'd pop in to let you know I am still here; just busy getting the flower beds ready for the summer. Raked all the grass yesterday. It is a slow process but hoping to have things under control by the weekend. Then in another week will be able to seed the garden. There is always lots to do this time of year on the farm!
Hope to post a card at the end of the week!
Ta Ta for now!
