Snapshots of Spring

Just various snapshots from our first spring in Tennessee:
 
Cucumbers peeking out in our tiny little garden...
 
 
Wildflowers
 
 
Apple-merengue tart for breakfast
 
 
Attending a local reenactment
 
 
Making a new raised bed
 
Strawberry season!
 
Adventures in sourdough break making
 
bird-watching.
We had Goldfinch in Texas in the winter,
 but its so fun to see them in their yellow summer coat.
 
Late night cookie cravings
 
Discovering a swimming hole...
 
Fun times.
 
Currently we are preparing to attend the Gettysburg Blue-Gray Alliance reenactment this week.
Any of my readers going?

Oh I love this post! Great pictures! YES! My group is going to the Blue-Gray Alliance reenactment! I would LOVE to be able to meet you!

Oh! Ecstasy! What a lovely post! Do you use your wood cook stove for all your cooking and baking? It looks fun and terrifying. =]

Pretty pictures of your garden and wildlife too. =]

I hope we'll get to go to a reenactment this year! But not the gettysburg one, as we're on the opposite side of the States. =]
I hope you'll take pictures for us to see!

Beautiful photos! The tart and bread looked delicious. Are you planning to make strawberry jam? I too hope that you will post photos from the reenactment. : )

Oh, you will have to tell me how you liked your sourdough bread...I put together a starter about a week ago, tomorrow will be baking day, I'm excited to see how it turnes out! I also found a recipe using the starter to make sourdough pizza crust. I plan to make one tomorrow along with the bread. I have also seen a sourdough doughnut recipe, which I would love to try sometime as well. :)

I just recieved a sour dough bread start. As soon as we return from Gettysburg, I'm going to start "growing" it. Any tips or advice? I'm excited and nervous to try it out. But I love the idea of using natural yeast for bread. Lovely post!
