The first signs of spring
At my place the first signs of spring is a break in the rain. Today is one of those days, sun breaks between showers and the weather is warm, at least for here – in the 50's. If we are lucky we might get into the 60's but I am not holding my breath, after all it is just spring.
Hummingbirds are another sign that spring has arrived. I have to clean out the hummingbird feeders and hang them again for the little jewels on the wing to show up.
Thunder storms are another sign and yes they are here almost every afternoon.
Just a few weeks ago we had a big snow storm roll through the area. It was one of the type that got everyone off guard and I could not get out of my driveway to get to work. Glad that mess is gone until next year. Bring on the warm weather.
Another sign of spring is fixing fences for the horses and repairing pastures. Removing downed trees from pasture that died this past winter and keeping an eye on the horses so they don't colic from the new spring grasses.
Yes, spring is here – finally.
