4.8 Spring fever
The bees were buzzing 'round the crocuses today. The crows were chasing around in twos. The geese seem to have finished pairing off in all the local ponds. The turkeys woke us up a little before six, with loud noises off in the woods. The peregrine falcons downtown have 5 eggs and reportedly seem to be starting to brood. The weeds are starting to come up. The daylilies (babies and older ones) are starting to green up. The spring peepers are going to town. When I poke a stick in the ground, it still only goes down about 3 inches. It may be spring on top, but it's still winter underneath.
