and enjoy the arrival of spring.
Spring clean up has been going on a while and the green has not arrived in full force yet. The brush piles are growing and gardens are plowed. Onions, radishes and early crops are in the ground waiting for the perfect day to rise to the top.
We are late this year because the snow enjoyed it's visit far too long to please me. We are blessed. Although we had unusual amounts and long lived snow and ice we had nothing compared to many places. This winter has been rough on all.
I have been randomly planting sunflower seeds from last year. I know they clean the soil so I am planting them in places I have already forgotten. I will be pleasantly surprised when those smiling sunflower faces greet me later in the season.
The spring calves are doing well. The cattle can find winter grass again. The last few bales wait in the barn to be enjoyed before the grass comes in full.
I think the birds are singing louder this year. They, too, were tired of ice.
