Appearance of Spring

What a difference a week makes. Last week we were still all snow covered. This week we have been blessed with daytime temperatures reaching a few degrees above zero. Spring melting has begun.

The trail out to pasture is soft slushy snow that is hard to walk in and bits of earth are revealed on the South side.

The yard is still full of snow but patches of earth are appearing rather quickly.

Our driveway is reappearing.

Winter Sorels have been traded for Muck Boots.

Now we walk the dogs in snow deliberately in order to clean the mud off.

I spotted the first Canada Goose to arrive at our place.

It feels as though our world is waking up.
