Everyday Moments: May 2014 (Part I)

This post is overdue a few weeks, which makes it a throwback to May’s activities.

Spring kind of kicks off a little differently where I work and where I live. I have about an hour commute up north to go to work, which makes the Spring season about two to three weeks slower than where I live.

Plants and planting

For anyone who knows about my windowless office job, it was pretty neat to be able to do two or three days landscaping, which is when I found this little bee shuffling around on the sidewalk.

Seedlings were just about making their way through the skeletal remains of winter.

Furriness and hair

The past month we’ve had these little guys around our workplace, they’ve been in and out of the office and greeting our guests on the street.

And in approach to the wedding at the end of this month, my hair is in real need of some attention…

Spring flowers and Sauerkraut

I enjoyed paying closer to all the spring flowers and buds this year; it was pretty neat noticing all the flora on the trees that I would have otherwise never known bore flowers in spring.

Spring was also a very good time for me to get back on the homemade sauerkraut train. This time I made a giant jar and fermented it for about three weeks. So pretty! So colourful! Great with your morning eggs – just saying.

Spring Light

And finally, with the days stretching out longer, the light is magical in the late afternoons among the forest trees.
