Now that our lake has thawed, the geese are out swimming. Today, although I was busy in my back room, reorganizing, I suddenly glimpsed out the window and saw one of our swans gliding past! Perhaps she is looking for a spot to start building her nest! Any day now…
Last night the wind was howling again and I thought of March “coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb.” It’s kind of too early to tell, though, as it’s been really cold but nice otherwise. I remember years when we had snow in March, so I’m hoping this IS the lion’s portion and it will be mild and wooly as we move through the “Mad March” days!
Seeing the swan on the lake is another sign of the approach of spring. It was not a particularly hard winter, but the year of covid has taken its toll on everyone I know. I feel like spring will help us all to bloom a bit…even if we are still “planted” in our homes! Ciao for now! Patty 🌱🌷🦢
