The Hills are Alive

Rained all day. Muddy, but lovely, since we are in drought conditions.

The peepers are singing full force! Actually I can distinguish between at least three different frog voices tonight. Funny, last night it was so sporadic. Now they are all fully awakened.

Between the peepers and the ducks and the geese and the chickens and guineas and bawling heifers and maahing kids and baaaing lambs and gobbling turkey, life on the farm is not so quiet these days. I think everything is waking up.


Even the wind adds a nice background note as it flows over the woods on the ridge.

Heard the first peepers here last night and today the yard has turned GREEN! Happy spring!

One of the things I love about reading your blog is how it keeps me in touch with how the seasons of life are moving down in Virginia, which I often miss. Thank you for your diligence at sharing your talent, and your eye. said...

Hi Chris. Isn't it wonderful?

Hi Tom. Thanks so much. Glad to share Virginia with you. Guess it will be awhile til green and peepers arrive in Vermont! But I know it will be just as sweet. Thanks for your encouragement.
