The seasons are what a symphony ought to be: four perfect movements in harmony with each other. –Arthur Rubinstein
In the winter, we read all day and do school work and spend lots of time in the kitchen.
In the spring, we clean the house, tidy up the wild outdoors, and savor the tender spinach and kale and watch the sweet peas bloom.
In the summer, we swim and ride horses.
In the autumn, we harvest and work and cook and clean and laugh and eat lots of zucchini.
Isn’t life in its simplicity so sweet? (I won’t mention in this post the other things we do that aren’t as…well..sweet.)
As winter has neared its end, and spring is mostly here, we are more and more outside weeding and mowing and enjoying the sunshine. But, here is a near-winter’s-end photo depicting what we did all day. Now it’s time to soak in the spring!
