I saw a new bird today!! It’s a white throated sparrow.
The other morning I had a pair of pheasants in my front yard.
Spring is finally here! It was a horribly long winter, and I’m so glad to be able to walk outside barefoot and dig in the dirt. I planted carrots, radishes, parsnips and onions yesterday. My chickens are busy coming up to my flower gardens and digging in all of that nice, rich dirt. Time to get the fences up to keep them out.

My lilacs are starting to bud out, 
johnny jump ups

and crocuses

Yes, spring is my most favorite time of the year, warm enough and still chilly enough so the bugs haven’t come out yet, although I do see a fly in my window, sigh. Time to get the flyswatter...

Oh, it’s a regular blizzard out there! My driveway is turning white. Yuck, yuck, yuck!!!!!

Well, it’s official. We’ve had snow for 8 months now.
