The forsythia is starting to bloom, the magnolias have some huge blossoms ready to burst open, and the fields are beginning to have a green hue.
I succumbed and bought strawberry plants the other day – I might be able to get them into the ground soon! I also found some cuttings of pussy willows, in the thrift store! I have 2 bunches in water – and I am hoping they start to root. I would love to have a pussy willow bush again!
I stopped at my favorite tea haunt – Mrs. Hardesty’s Tearoom, and picked up two cute little tins of tea – Buckingham Palace and Raspberry. Guess what I’ll be drinking before bed!!
While walking the dogs, we found some “leftovers” from our resident hawk’s meal. A robin fell prey to him, and apparently a bunny did also. In the paddock, where the hawks hangs out, was a mound of feathers, and further down the fence line, a tiny little cotton tail. Sad, but everyone has to eat………
I believe I even saw some bluebirds flitting in and out of the woods near the barn.
I REALLY need to put that hummingbird feeder outside tomorrow. If this weather keeps up – they will be hanging around looking for sustenance!
Time to check on the horses…..all is well at Mountain Meadows tonite.
