Hello everyone! I am finally feeling better….just a wee bit….on the mend…just in time for my husband’s flu/cold to be kicking in a bit harder unfortunately! It was a nasty virus that I hope no one else gets. Spring is coming to Maine finally! It’s seems that it has been a long winter here. We are fortunate as there are many northern states that are experiencing more blizzards on top of major flooding!! These folks are in my prayers. The weather is changing in this country…..sometimes quite drastically.
With spring comes Easter and green grass and budding trees and flowers and fiddleheads and ferns and May flowers and pussy willows and the first day of fishing and yard sales and raking the yard and brush to be piled and trees to be trimmed! It’s the season where everything is brand new again! Birds are laying eggs in nests and little babies will be born and learning to fly. They will line my power line going to my house and poop all over the ground while waiting for their mom and dad to fly by with bugs and worms to feed them. The wasps and bumblebees and black flies will come out of hiding and fly right into your face on a semi-warm day. It’s as if they are not quite awake yet or acclimated to the the changing season. The world comes alive once again and winter is but a distant memory….the only reminder being a flash of white snow deep in the woods that has not melted because of lack of sunlight.
April is a month of new beginnings. While driving down my road the other day I noticed the familiar site of a large silver bus at the farmers house. Our local grower goes to Florida for the winter in that movie star looking road bus. He is back from his winter getaway and will soon be preparing the many acres of soil for planting. He manages one of the most beautiful acreages in this state. I will share some photos with you later on this spring. So….go forth and multiply!!….Or something like that?? Enjoy spring and I hope you all have some nice new beginnings too.:):)
