First Day of Spring


I drove to Pitney Meadows this morning to greet the first rays of spring sunshine on the trees and snow covered fields.

As I gazed out, I thought of how I don’t know this land yet. And with the snow about a foot deep, introductions will have to wait. Soon (I hope) we will begin the learning process.

What weeds grow here? What is the soil like? What insects will there be? What birds will visit? What critters call this home?

I’m looking forward to all that will come. Just as I am looking forward to the greening of Spring.
