Between The Seasons

This morning the Kelpies and I took a long walk across a piece of pasture we don’t normally travel.  The snow on the open pastures has rapidly disappeared just over the last couple days.  The ground is still frozen and the mornings are crisp with the overnight freezing that still occurs.  

When I scan the broader landscape it appears brown and monochrome, but at my feet is a nice covering of last years residue with some color still left in it.  The soil surface is well protected and the residue will help hold in any springtime moisture we receive.  

The ewes seem quite content when they bed down for the evening, as do the livestock guardian dogs.  I think we are all are feeling the contentedness of sitting between the seasons and feeling the sun warm us back up.
