Spring at Safe Haven Farm

Spring is a beautiful time of year when life returns to all the plants that went to sleep over the winter. Spring is such a wonderful reminder of how God breaths life back into our lives when we come to know Jesus.

What’s unusual for us is that we don’t normally get spring this early. It’s really rare that the flowers and trees would be budding out so wildly this early in the year, so we all knew it wouldn’t last long. I grabbed my old trusty camera and went out and snapped what I could.

These little buds will eventually become beautiful, fragrant lilacs

We know it's spring when the forsythia starts blooming

But the real beauties (IMHO) are the apricots! Look at all those blossoms!

I'm praying that we still get a harvest even though they bloomed so early
