After the Snow

Only a few days ago, we had eight inches of snow and temperatures in the teens. Today, temperatures hit the eighties.

Yesterday, most of the snow had melted. It was warm enough for Foxy to make her rounds. Her shaved place looks kind of like a poodle-cut. Her stitches are out and her incision is healing.

Mary stopped by to ride Melody, and they took off down the road.

Roman Preston and Ruby Sherwood followed them back. Roman and Ruby wrestled in what was left of the snow.

Today, the snow was gone and mud was everywhere.

John put in a new bale for the horses.

Melody decided to check it out.

Soon she was chowing down.

Flowers appeared my yard. Like crocus. . .

. . . and daffodils. . .

. . . and windflowers.

Tonight I heard the spring peepers in the pasture across the road. But I didn't go out in the dark to take pictures of them.

Two weeks until spring officially comes, but it seems like it's already here.

Ruby and Roman wrestled for a long time in the snow, too. They really seemed to have a good time.
