I’ve been sadly slack on content the last few days, but well, it is spring and I’m busy. And tired at the end of the day. And Stoneleigh of The Automatic Earth was visiting. And well…hey, it is 66 degrees, sunny and beautiful. I’m in the middle of a piece answering a reader’s question about why even economists should be concerned about peak energy but it lost to the sunshine. The problem is that the computer is in the house, and I don’t go there this time of year if I can avoid it .
On the other hand, what I do have, for the first time in a long while, is a working (until one of the children borrows and drops it) digital camera. So I thought I’d fake it with some pictures from a week or two ago at our place and hope you forgive me based on sheer cuteness. The pix, btw, were all taken by the children.
Signs of spring:
Seedlings getting ready for transplant:
Blackberry the rooster and two happy kids:
Mac the Marshmallow, doing his thing (this photo doesn’t give you a sense of the true hugeness of him!)
Apricot trees in bloom (as far as I know the only apricots successfully grown in my region and at my elevation):
Eli helps drain and clean the rainbarrels (yeah, I know it is sideways, I can’t figure out how to re-orient it):
Mistress Quickly smiles for the camera:
Say goodbye, bunny!:
