Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

Spring is budding :)

Hens at the edge of the forest.
Little greens popping up here and there.
Daylilies by the walk,
soon hummingbirds will be drinking here.


Fowering Almond buds.
The flowers are very short lived but well worth it.

The large daylily patch,
not just pretty but very tasty too :)

Nik, lazing in one of the hammocks,
just like every kid should get to do :)

Isn't it wonderful? My Forsythia is budding and the spring bulbs are starting o poke their little heads through the dirt. Life renewed. Happy St. Patty's Day to you and Nik.

Spring growth is popping up here, too, and it is such a joy to see life again.

Daylilies are among my favorite flowers, but I never tried eating them. I'll have to look into that. And you're right - every kid deserves a hammock. I'll be getting one myself ASAP.

Looks like spring has certainly arrived where you are. We still have snow on the ground but I don't think spring is far off. Love the picture of the chickens in the woods. Reminds me of what it will be like here soon.
