Spring Craziness

I know I haven't been as reliable a blogger as I was all winter. Seems like every time I think I'm going to write, someone else is using the computer or there's a big storm coming and I have to run and get all my outside chores done before it hits.

And there are a lot of chores. We've moved the pullet house and redone the fence, baked multiple layer cakes, adopted a new dog, scrubbed all the waterers and feeders, planted, potted, and repotted the tomato plants, repotted the peppers and then planted them outside, dug out the blackberries, planted new strawberries, weeded the flower beds, built a fairy garden, and I'm hardening off the tomato seedlings today so they can be planted outside as soon as the garden dries out. Add to that the fact that I got a new phone (my first ever smart phone) and I couldn't find where the photos I took went or how to get them off my phone... yeah.

Anyway, I found the pics!
