I’m going out to clean the pasture spring; I’ll only stop to rake the leaves away (And wait to watch the water clear, I may): I shan’t be gone long.-You come too. I’m going out to fetch the little calf That’s standing by the mother. It’s so young It totters when she licks it with her tongue. I shan’t be gone long –You come too. Robert Frost


As soon as I walked out the front door this morning I was greeted by the fragrance of the sweet olive flowers. My Mamaw Simmons had a sweet olive tree, so I always associate that smell with her….that and Youth Dew dusting powder by Este Lauder. Anyway, the smell of the sweet olive flower is one of my favorites.

This is Sassafras, our new rabbit. She is very friendly and very sweet. This afternoon she joined me at my desk in the library. However, she was not alone.

She was joined by Cocoa Meow. They are beginning to make friends…I think.


Later on Josh was in the daylily garden trying to finish planting his 2010 seedlings. I’m not sure how much he actually got done because I see he had help.
