Is That You, Spring?

It's been so long, I didn't recognize you!


Last March was crazy warm. Warm enough to make all the fruit trees bud. And then we had repeated hard frosts after that, so that much of the fruit crop in Michigan was damaged or lost.

This March has been its polar opposite (no pun intended). Lots of snow, grey skies, wintery winds. But now the sun is higher, and seems to peek out more. And the flowers are poking through the ground and showing promise. The horses lay out flat, soaking up the sun.

The Farmer is making more phone calls. He's been out to the field where he hopes to plant oats soon. Too squishy yet. Needs ditching, but we can't even get the small tractor on the field to put ditches in.

Soon, though. Soon.

  1. Soon, indeed! We had quite a bit of snow here (CNY) over the past couple days, but we're looking at temps in the 40s/50s for the next few days. Hopefully my crocuses will reemerge from the snow tomorrow!

  2. We are anxiously awaiting Spring here in North Mississippi, too. Oddly we have been hovering just above the freezing mark for the lows and the 40's and 50's during the day. Wet, rainy, dreary...and just being teased with a nice sunny day or two here and there.

    Hope all is well on your farm in your neck of the woods...and I hope you get your true Spring soon. :)
