It’s a rainy day in Floyd. The rain is supposed to stick around for a few days. It is still spring, though, and spring is beautiful.
Creeping phlox are blooming on the hillside. The peach tree is as well.
We had a nice, sunny weekend. I got the yard mowed and did some weed-eating.
Dandelions have taken over the front yard, and violets are growing through out the goat field. We love weeds and harvested a bunch to make jelly. 🙂
We have been making dandelion jelly for years. It is lovely and tastes a lot like honey. This year I used the recipe and tutorial found here. It turned out perfectly and set up just like jelly.
The violet jelly turned out so pretty. Madison did it on her own from start to finish. I was really surprised at how yummy it tastes! The recipe she used is here.
