corine in action
Snow, that is. As predicted, March is going out like a lion. And that’s a good thing! We’ve had an incredibly dry winter, and the 12 inch snowfall we had yesterday will go far towards improving soil moisture content.
For those of you who don’t often get to watch it snow I’ve created a little time sequence photo gallery for you. Watch the snow pile up on my chiminea!
It’s not just what you see but also what you hear that reminds you that change is on the way. The recent sounds of spring in my neighborhood:
-The buzzing of hundreds of bees in the flowering trees.
-The cooing of a pair of mourning doves. They’ve just arrived and will stay now through the summer.
-The tune Little Redbird* being broadcast endlessly by an ice cream truck.
-The obnoxious whine of a lawnmower.
Take out your ear buds and listen to spring!
*Warning. If you don’t already know this song then do NOT search it. It’s the worst of the worst brain worms and will drive you insane!
