Archive for spring
Yesterday we found a racoon skull down at Rattlesnake Creek, and in the evening we could hear peepers all the way from the creek on our front porch.
Just before the rain started we saw pink buds on the azalea under the dog wood by the shed,
the same shed the dead pine fell on a few months back.
Spring can’t be far away.

With all this rain and temperature fluctuation, spring can’t be far behind.
Ok….it has been March for a week,
we have had our March snow storm,
so now we are really ready for spring.
For a special added attraction:
here is a photo of a train crossing the James River I took last Sunday.
It is the first day of March. Meteorological spring.
There is a nice red fuzz on the trees that one can see while crossing the river.
It hasn’t been that cold of a winter here, but it certainly has been long and dark.
We are all looking for more light and warmer temperatures.
Change is in the air.
It is time to embrace it.
Enjoy the extra day of February, my favorite month. It is only once every 4 years we get a February 29th so we should sit back and enjoy it. Tomorrow is March 1st the meteorological first day of spring. We have made it through another winter and I am looking forward to the planet coming alive again with small green bits of color sprouting out all over the place.
