The Farm Girls have been enjoying our nature walks around the farm.
It sure was humid on Thursday. A nice change from being cold.
The wild plums are starting to bloom along the old rail bed. They will be just beautiful balls of white in a few days.
We saw this beauty on our walk too.
The river is still up, but at least it is out of the fields (in most places).
Somewhere along the trail Ella ‘hurt’ her ankle. I thought she had twisted it, the old rail bed is hard to walk on sometimes. Luckily I saw Daddy drive by on his way to the house. I gave him a call on his phone and Daddy came back for us.
When we got back to the house, it turns out there was a tiny, very sharp and pointy rock in Ella’s boot. It had cut up her ankle. Ella’s such a drama queen I thought she’d sprained her ankle.
A sure sign of spring, the trillium are out. Around here there are so many that they are almost weeds. Between the front half and back half of our ‘Poff Farm’ has a little gully. This gully is just full of trillium. Dad always brought Mom a big bouquet for their anniversary (yesterday). They are beautiful but they stink. I’m glad Colin doesn’t bring me any home.
It was such a beautiful day that we decided to go for our first ice cream of the season. We ran into Cobden to go to Lisa’s (a.k.a. The Scoop). It’s owned by a school friend of Colin’s and has some of the best ice cream (though I still say Kawartha Dairy is the best).
It’s wet and cold today, so I’m glad we were able to enjoy being out and about yesterday.
