Spring 2013 Has Arrived!
Spring has finally arrived at La Ferme Sabloneuse, at least temporarily. My ultimate indicator, the Spring peepers, came out last night and are going full bore this evening. There's not much "greening up" yet in the fields and the bunnies are searching for the first tiny green shoots of grass, but it was in the 60's today and that's the best it's been in months and months.
In the last few weeks the migrant birds have had to struggle with colder than usual weather. I've been worrying about the prospects of eggs and fledglings this spring. They will get a stretch of warm weather for a few days. I can only hope that there won't be a deep cold and wet spell which would decimate the next generation of birds.

My cousin, Billy Younger, told me last Sunday that he had heard the Spring peepers along the railroad tracks. The temps were in the 40's and there was snow in the woods then, so we surmised that the peepers, as with all wildlife, were moved by the slant of the sunshine as opposed to the temperatures, at least to a "degree".
So tomorrow I will till our home garden and pick up the fallen branches at my Ma's and stop often and feel the warm sunlight on my face after such a hard winter. -- Gary
