Weekend Blues

What a blessing to be surrounded by these blue skies!  Most of the weekend was filled with the most beautiful February weather, and although it began to snow again Sunday afternoon, the air was filled with hope.  Because, you see, there were ROBINS! Not just one lonely, lost, what-am-i-doing-so-far-north robin, but dozens and dozens of ROBINS!  They were busy as can be in the hayfields and pastures.
So… we’re calling it.  It is officially Late Winter!  Late Winter!  (Please don’t tell us any different.)

A Little Spring Color

Color is returning to the mountains, and it is surely a welcome sight.  The pastures are beginning to green up a little, flowers and shrubs are beginning to bloom.  Even the trees are providing a beautiful showing as the mountains surrounding us change from grey and black and brown to palette of delicate yellows, reds and even a little green.  Oh my, how we love our mountains… but you already know that.
