The sun is warm but the wind is still cool, teasing us with the promise of spring. Yard work is getting done. The robins are gathering dry grass for nesting materials. For the past two years, a mother robin has made a nest in Rick's shed and we will leave it undisturbed for this year's potential family.
Our two, very old cherry trees from the original orchard are in full bloom. I am happy to report they are teaming with buzzing bees. When the kids were small, I used to call them "humming trees" because of all the bee activity. They will provide us with a variety of cherry concoctions to last the year. Our neighbor even passed us a jar of home made cherry BBQ sauce! We are eager to try it on the Sunday steak we share, grilled on our beautiful, lavender Webber charcoal BBQ. And quite possibly there will be some form of cherry dish served up in the breakfast items we bring to your door.
We have been here three years, working and renovating, and finally walked/hiked up to the Little Tunnel on the KVR just above our place. I highly recommend it. The view was spectacular, and next time we will definitely take a picnic basket. We are looking forward to showing guests this little slice of heaven we call Naramata. Hello Spring!
That's the view from my deck.
