The Natives are Restless

         There is a hint of spring in the air and the 'natives' are restless. It seems everything has a restless energy just waiting to get out. Little mama-to-be goats frolic in burst of enthusiasm (quickly followed by a nap in the sun) and Hadassah jus can't quick chasing everything in sight. Chickens are eagerly exploring every inch of the property in search of tasty fresh nibbles. Even Doc has been strangely energetic, kicking up his heels a bit. They are eager for spring!
          Standing in the garden today a few anxious bees were out seeking early blossoms- the apples and pears have just opened their dainty petals. I had missed their buzzy busyness. The warm afternoon even had birds signing; I spotted a bluebird and a cardinal dancing about a fallen pine branch. Their song was so joyful and pretty.
          I too am ready for spring- seeds need setting and tomatoes are ready for transplant. Winter has seemed so long- so cold, this year.. I don't think I can take another week of gray. So here I sit gazing out my window, realizing the honeysuckle is blooming in the woods and Easter lily shoots are springing up in the flower bed. Yes, we are very restless and eager to see spring.

Sounds so lovely. We have 2 more inches of snow with another 1 yet to come. I sure hope this is it. Can't wait to smell some blossoms!

More snow- Oh no! I can't image seeing so much in one year. Hopefully it ends soon.
The goat is a doe, Zaida, our head milker:)
