I got up in the middle of the night as I often do. It was the night before the full moon and it was bright out. Looking out the window and down into the yard, I saw a fox walking across the stone wall in front of our house. He hesitated right below my window like he knew he was being watched and then sauntered off toward the woods.
The next morning when I went to the garage, I noticed that suet feeder was down on the porch. It had obviously been pulled off the hook where it hung through the winter. I think we had a visit from a bear.
Things are stirring around here, folks. Yep, things are stirring.
Our crabapple tree has set its buds.
The squills are starting to go and the bluets have sprung up.
We even have a tulip blooming.
The magnolia buds are getting ready to burst open.
Of course, the may flies are out, too. But I'm doing my best to ignore them.
