Signs of Spring around the Homestead

The bees are busy.

The apple trees are in bloom.

The vernal pond is full of water and teeming with tadpoles.
An interesting nest has appeared in one of my bird boxes. A Chickadee or perhaps a Nuthatch??
My grafting skills seem to have improved. In future years I'll be enjoying old-fashioned apples with names like Pomme Gris, Red Limbertwig, and Newt Grindle to name a few. Let the average person eat their store bought Red Delicious & Yellow Delicious, I'll be savoring these old apples from the past.

Life is good here on the homestead.
