Mr Wren and I have been gadding about (more of our travels in later posts). It was a delight to come home this morning and find that the snow was indeed completely gone. I haven’t seen the rocks at the end of our driveway since December.
I’m sure we still have some cold days and freezing rain/snow in our immediate future, but I can’t help but celebrate these small oases of spring as they occur. We still have high water in the wetlands, and a great blue heron was taking advantage of it to stalk fish and frogs and other edibles. I heard a chorus of blackbirds calling, not just the one early arrival I saw earlier, and the house finches are still courting. A cute little female just perched on the window sill and looked in to see me working away.
Happy spring to one and all!
The world is so full of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings
