Looking Forward To It!

Compass Plant and the Prairie Hill Farm Prairie Hillside

I'm almost's starts tomorrow! Officially anyway; tomorrow is the first day of Spring!

We woke up to a fresh covering of snow here at Prairie Hill Farm. The Robins are not happy but are doing their thing, strutting and pecking wherever they can. A little snow is no big thing now...even a lot of snow would be no big deal either, because It's almost spring! Whatever falls today or tomorrow will be gone in a couple days or so.

The sky was actually blue this Wednesday and Thursday! It was so nice to not be fogged in...a person's soul needs blue skies. Simple as that.

We're looking forward to the greening and flowering of the landscape here...the prairie is wonderful when spring comes, and even more so through the summer!

I went out and help Georgie a little in the yard yesterday...just could not stay in the studio. I pruned wild plums around the buildings while Georgie pruned the raspberry canes. During the afternoon the sky was full of many, many flocks of Snow Geese and Canada Geese heading north. Music to the ears.

Birds of the yard were singing as well...Robins, Chickadees, Nuthatches, and the many Red-winged Blackbirds and newly arrived Killdeers.

It's Spring tomorrow...did I mention that??!
