Newsletter #2 – Spring at Lifewater Ranch

DSC_2573.JPGApril and May are our spring months at Lifewater Ranch.  It’s when our daffodils and tulips begin to bloom around the pool.  This year has been a very wet one and so odds are high that you will see showers during your stay here at these times but odds are also high that you will see perfect spring days with sunshine and new grass.  The greens in the valley are vibrant this time of year.  It’s also the best time of year to hunt for herbs and try out some of the healthy weeds such as dandelion, cumfrey, horsetail, yarrow, wild mint and the abundant plantain.  Spring is when these greens are less-bitter than at other times and more tender.

Spring is also when we start to sprout our gardens:

Spring also sports abundant water in our creeks and ponds.

And don’t forget our rainbows:

Of course, if it does rain on you, the hot-tub is good in any weather as is our billiard table.  I love the sound of the rain at night or anytime and our large porch lets you sit outside and soak in the fresh clean air while not getting a drop of water on you.

We often get good breezes blowing up the creek from below in Spring – to me it feels like God kissing me.

Wwoofer‘s should very much consider visiting us in the spring as it is off-season for guests yet has the most work to do.  The cool, perfect weather for getting jobs done, and all the amenities are there for you.

So, consider spring as a good time to visit Lifewater Ranch and renew your strength in nature’s abundance.
