Has Spring Sprung?

There is a ceramic vase of pussy willow boughs on our hutch.
The wind buffets my windows throughout the night.
I took my first long walk yesterday: up the hill, bear right at the farm, and then down the ridge where sap buckets bedeck a maple grove.
The horses find something to munch on, though they seem to stand in a sea of mud.
50 degrees seems agreeable.

Hold on, everyone. A few weeks longer, and we'll really have something to talk about....

Good thing Joey isn't coming over today...he'd look at you with big blue eyes and leave with your pussy willows! Did you know that cat tail stalks are a delicacy in restaurants?
