Winter seemed cold and drawn out which means it was a typical hills winter - grey and damp. The past few winters have been cold yet sunny. The grey meant we had average rainfall at long last so hopefully their is enough subsoil moisture to get us through the coming summer.
The frogs are busy calling while the birds display their riches plumes.While weeding the berries the blue wrens follow me along the rows chasing the tiny lives I’ve disturbed.
Spring is a special time to observe and enjoy.
