|Old photo, obviously. Bonus points if you can tell me the post.|
The calendar may not say it's spring just yet, but the signs of its imminent arrival are everywhere. For these signs, I am completely, ridiculously thankful.
I am not a fan of Canada Geese in general, but in one particular way, I love them. Each spring and fall I hear them migrating. The sound starts far off in the distance. It's so far away, the geese can't be seen yet. You know they're coming, but you must be patient. The sound gets louder and louder as they get closer and closer. And then you see the first wave in the telltale v-formations.
Normally, chickens out of their pen gets me worked up. Not so this week! They were behaving by staying in the holding area, so I was happy to let them stay. They are outside! Fresh air!! Acting like chickens should!
They're kinda hard to find, but little bits of green are starting to pop out of the ground.

Clothes actually drying in the line
|Did you notice most of the tree has fallen down, but the zip line is still intact? I"m thinking it's God's way of telling me, "Thou shalt use the kids' zip line as a clothes line."|
15 hours after those pictures of my kids coloring with chalk on the porch were taken, I took this photo.

Funny clothing combinations
As you saw, temperatures drastically fluctuate in the span of a day. A person has to endlessly add and remove extra layers of clothing. Or, they partially add and remove layers. Either way, it makes for some funny combinations.
|I went out to hang clothes on the line, and when I walked back up the hill, I caught a glimpse of this lovely look. I didn't realize how bad it was until I saw it for myself.|
We order all of our seeds and plants from a catalog, and the company sends each plant to us when it is time to plant it. Today, this came in the mail:
|Potatoes, gold. From Yukon.|
So, what does spring look like where you are? What made you smile this week?
Have a lovely day!
