While there is still a lot of snow left to melt, we are starting to see more and more bare ground, and even saw our first green life poking through the ground this week!
I expect we’ll have a lot more of that to share soon. Luke and I are starting to see some clear areas in our trails, and the chickens are happy to have more ground to peck at.
The first dirt baths of the season are a favorite, and since the front of the house here gets a lot of the sun, this is a favorite spot.
Even I was sitting outside one day this week! I did have a coat and hat on, but I was cleaning some flower pots. Eventually my hands did get cold so I went inside to finish starting some seeds in those pots. It was exciting to be doing the first garden work of the season!
Last but not least, while we had been getting tired of snow photographs, on our walk with the Dadz last weekend, we did find this interesting sight. We’re not sure what kind of wildlife did this to the tree, hubby thinks maybe a porcupine? You can kind of see gnawing teeth marks in the tree in the photo on the right side. The only tracks around the tree were deer, so we didn’t get any clues there.
What interesting sights is spring bringing to your neck of the woods?
