Gratitude

Feeling so lucky to live where I do. 
Marveling at the wonders of spring; tulips and forget-me-nots...

 ...the first cheese from our goat (a simple soft cheese made by heating the milk to just-boiling, adding lemon juice and allowing it to separate, then straining it), so creamy and unexpectedly rich...

 ...the bluebell woods in full bloom, perfect in the evening sunshine...

...and ferns, unrolling themselves in the undergrowth behind the house, getting ready to spread their leaves. 

I'm so grateful for the wonders of spring. Even though our winter was mild and easy in comparison to some we've had recently, the new season - the freshness of things, the sunshine and the growth is a balm to the soul.
