Lovely warm day, with temperatures in the upper 60s. I had plans for inside work, putting together stuff for upcoming workshops. But the outdoors beckoned, so after making the week's soup, getting the bread in the bread machine and yogurt in the oven to culture, I headed out. And didn't get back inside until dark.
This week's soup: Turkey and Tomato Rice with Corn and Black Beans. Tastes right yummy.
The flower gardens looked a lot better when we were done. We didn't get to all of them but we sure made a big dent.

These little fellows were everywhere today, busy as bees you might say:
After three hours of raking and hauling, I stopped and cleaned up the porch, giving it a good mopping in the process to get rid of more of winter's dirt and Larry went back out to the field where he is cutting tomato stakes and bean poles. We finished the day off with the first fire in the firepit for this year
