Signs of Spring

We woke up one day and it was SPRING!

The trees all had leaves and the bushes were green.

We had some wonderful rain over the weekend, so our still-short grass should start growing now.

Our county extension agent said last week that it was drier than it was right before the Dust Bowl. I'm thanking the Lord for the rain and I hope we'll get more.

There are lots of limbs down from the high winds we've had the past week or so. Below: A path made by the horses through a hollow.

I've heard whippoorwills, a sure sign of warm weather.

Spring has sprung!


  1. I'm sorry - the Dust Bowl thing is probably Oregon's fault. We are having one of the rainiest springs on record. I finally got some seeds in the ground last month but they kept floating to the top. I had to go out almost every day and push them back into the soil!

    can't tell for sure from picture, but may be Jerusalem Artichokes?
