In The Air

Spring is in everything on the farm. The snow and ice that have plagued western Pennsylvania all Winter long are slowly beginning to melt into watery ribbons running down the driveway and through the grass of the yard. The trees are back to bare branches rather than being white with piled snow and the yesterdays sky was a lovely blue rather than the same shade of grey we've been seeing around here for the last few months.

I know it won't last, because we are far from escaping Winter's icy grip this year. But yesterday was a perfect day nestled in between the months of coldness and frost. It felt amazing to see the signs of life everywhere again and to feel the sun shining down onto my shoulders.
