A Turn to Spring

No deep thoughts today, and no time to compose them if I did. Instead, a few pictures to document the farm’s turn from a long winter to a slow spring. With opening day this Saturday, we’re happy to see rain instead of snow. Thunder’s rolling as I write. Soon, raindrops will fall.

Six days ago, our yard was covered in snow.

We lost many of our daffodils to snow; the more colorful varieties bloom later and survived.

A peony unfurls like a tropical flower.

A certain sign of spring is a greenhouse full of tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants.

The snow gone, John mowed the yard this morning with my Grandpa Short’s push mower.
