Walking on Sunshine

Dear Friends of Earnest Efforts -

Spring is here.  We know this because the sun feels amazing, the delphinium are six inches tall,  and the buzzards are back.  The spring sunshine is recharging our batteries after a relaxed and joyful winter and dare I say it...life is good!!!  This three month break is winding down and we'll soon be immersed in Saturday Market, Earnie will be in the garden and we will be full speed ahead.  We love it.  In the mean time here is a photo journal of some of our inspiration around Olalla and just a little nonsense...
