It’s now the beginning of March and it’s coming in like a lion! With any luck, it will go out like a lamb!
In ten days’ time, we’ve gone from this:
and back to this:
The poor birds returning for the summer can’t figure out what’s going on. I counted 14 cardinals, male and female; the largest number I’ve counted at one time. And hundreds of grackles, starlings, red wing blackbirds and cow birds descend from the sky every day!
Meanwhile, I have received more than 35 garden catalogs! I sit and look at them wondering if spring planting time will ever get here!
My miniature donkeys, Samson and Delilah, are also waiting for spring ... they have a lot of pent up energy!
I guess we’ll just have to keep marking off the days on the calendar and hope for an early spring!
