Hear Ye! Hear Yes, spring has sprung here at Long Ears Farm.
This morning when I went out to do morning chores, I was greeted by the sound of a spring songbird. We have known each other for many years now, and I always say “See you next spring!” every time he flies south and I go indoors for the winter.
I felt like a rebirth is occurring, within me as well as the land, animals, trees, and grasses, everyone is slowly poking their heads up to greet the warmth of the longer days, and the arrival of the official start to spring.
Spring of lovely Spring, you are one of my favorites!
I feel bad every time I step on a blade of grass, it’s like ” sorry little fella, keep pushing up thru the dirt so soon you and I can begin the mowing ritual we luv and hate!”
The intensity of the smells in the air, was my first clue the spring is definitely on the way, there was a faint rich pasture smell, along with the meadow grasses that is ever so slightly getting stronger each day.
I am so looking forward to the lilacs blooming, talk about a rich spring smell, I will literally bury my face in my lilac bush and breath deeply, all the wonderful fragrance.
Oh spring, I am so glad to see you again my friend, this mean we both made it thru winter, all the animals can now rejoice in the longer warmer days, as they get ready to languish in the heat of summer.
We wont be together very long spring, so lets make the most of each moment and really enjoy each other company!
