Spring on the farm + Let's grow together {Link-up #14}

Did you all have a lovely Easter weekend?
Ours was like this:
Saturday, I worked.
Sunday, I deep-cleaned the entire house like a crazy person, because we had guests coming on Monday. Rich cleaned and tidied everything outside. It took us all day.
Monday I spent all morning fretting and prepping, then we had a great time with our guests around the campfire and with a dinner consisting of salmon, glazed carrots, roasted spring vegetables, rice and wine.
And today I basically needed the day to recuperate from it. I love having guests over, but I'm always exhausted on the day after. Totally worth it though!

Last week I took you on an adventure into the desert, so I thought this week we stay home. Spring has truly arrived, all the leaves are coming out in full force! Blossoms, flowers, bees and butterflies are everywhere, and the animals are loving the mild, sunny weather.
Here are some snaps from the farm lately:

Chickens
Do they look angry to you? They are actually just hangry.
Dogs
My loves.

Hi Mr. Peacock!
Treefrog
We caught this friendly little guy yesterday when we had a campfire, he hopped out from under the wood. Briefly we considered making him a home in an aquarium in the house, but then didn't have the heart. He now lives in the little pond on the deck - or, more likely, escaped back into the wild.

Posing nicely.

A rare moment of rest.

Has spring arrived where you live?

  8. He has since escaped into the wild. Too bad, but who can blame him - we have hundreds in our back field, and he probably wanted to join his family again. They give us the most beautiful croak-concert every night, the surest sign that spring is here!

  14. Love your farm pictures! I feel like you have a rare piece of heaven down there. Spring has definitely sprung here too. My brother got the pool open and ready for summer last weekend. Now if only it was a tad warmer. So close though.

  15. Oohh, you got access to a pool? I need that! Totally perfect.
    We love our farm a lot, it's my favourite place in the world. Thanks for saying that! ❤
