Signs of Spring
Allelulia! Easter Sunday. 30 degrees, a stiff North wind, snow covered landscape, a fire in the dining room. The sun is stronger now though and by mid-day the snow was mushy and dripping off the roof. The snowdrops are earning their name this week. No matter what, they continue to push their little blossoms up through the frozen snow, calling "hope, Spring, and warmth!" We cleaned out the sheep barn and lay fresh bedding, then Jack spread all the winter manure pile out on the far field; took about 5 trips and that will go a long way to enrichen that pasture. Sidney, the lab, made sure to lead the way each trip, with his stuffed monkey in mouth!
